Lyrics

Wiser

Written By: Mandy Keating

I just layed my head down to sleep, when the phone rings, it’s 3 in the morning
I hope that it’s someone else, not the bad news, that my mother brings me
On the highway at 5 am, this road seems empty and endless

Tears come and go
Like memories of you

Chorus: You know I’ll be wiser
You know I’ll be stronger
You know I’ll get through this alone
You know I’ll be wiser
You know I’ll be stronger
But no-one’s gonna love me like you
But no-one’s gonna love me like you

I don’t want to think too much, ‘cause I really might lose it
The world keeps spinning around, even though you’re not in it
All my life I’ve had admiration and a little anger

Tears fill my eyes
Your music makes me cry

Chorus

Now that some time has passed, I feel grateful and still a little sad
Sometimes I still pick up the phone, Thinking you’ll answer my call
Strength is one thing you gave to me, And it’s helped me carry on

The tears have all gone
Replaced with a smile and some songs

Chorus
And now I am wiser
And now I am stronger
You know I got through this alone
You know I am wiser
You know I am stronger
But no-one’s gonna love me like you
But no-one’s gonna love me like you
