April Wine -
I'd Rather Be Strong
-----------------------------------

It's a sad situation
Alot of hopeless information
On the news

Nothing's gonna please you
And nothing's gonna change
Well that's your view

So many hungry people
It's a shame and is it legal
Well it's a sight

There's something going on
Something we can change
And it's our right

(chorus)
So I'd rather be strong
In a hopeless situation
Yes I would rather be strong
In a hopeless situation
yes I would rather be strong
In a hopeless situation
Yes I would yes I would

Well you can say that it's a shame
And things remain the same
And so it goes

But no one's gonna hear you
And no one's gonna see
What doesn't show

It'd be cause for celebration
If only every nation
Understood

Helping one another
Doing for the other
What they could

(chorus)
I'd be alot better off if I could
Be part of the love
That's seemingly lost from above

A delicate situation
Requires contemplation
Everyone

And someone has to care
When people live in fear
Of each man's son

(chorus)
I'd be a lot better off if I could

Be part of the love
That's seemingly lost from above

I'd rather be strong yes I would
I'd rather be strong yes I would
I'd rather be strong yes I would
I'd rather be strong yes I would
I'd rather be strong yes I would
I'd rather be strong yes I would
