Here is yet another song-fic in my little LeAnn Rimes song-fic series that started with I Dare You and Upper Hand. This is the third in the series. I don't think that it is essential to read the others first, but if you're a dork like me who enjoys reading a series in order, then by all means, go right ahead. It won't bother me in the slightest. I would like to, as always, suggest that you google the song Strong and listen to it for a more…real…feel to the story. I really like this song. I wish that I had a copy of it, but alas, not all LeAnn Rimes songs are in my library…sad day.

This LeAnn Rimes song is titled Strong. The idea for this fanfic has sort have been rolling around in the palm of my hand for a short while. I wasn't really all that sure what I wanted to do with it, but I've decided just to let it come to me as I go along. That usually works ;-) Well, a friend of mine requested that I write a song-fic for this song. As soon as I listened to it (I'd only heard it once or twice before) a few more times, it hit me. This was the song that would be perfect for the fanfic idea I had been toying with. So, I'm curious to see how this is going to spin out. Let me know what you think! And thankyou for all of your support! Reader's rock!

STRONG

The light of my life's been stolen

I've walked in every shade of black

And I never thought I would get me back

It's funny how life can change you

And make you who you are today

I wonder if God set it up that way

For me to be…

Strong, even when it hurts

The heat, it's gonna burn

Got to let it go

Strong, Strong

Make a big mistake and never run away

There's nothing like this feeling

To be free and unafraid

Who ever thought I could be this brave?

Learning everyday

Strong, even when it hurts

The heat, it's gonna burn

Got to let it go

Strong, Strong

Make a big mistake and never run away

I wanna push away the boundaries

I wanna love outside the lines

I wanna sail in the sun

Be okay

And fight for my life

Whatever comes

Whatever breaks

I'll stand up straight

Strong, even when it hurts

The heat, it's gonna burn

Got to let it go

Strong, Strong

Make a big mistake and never run away

Never run away

No, no, no

Strong!

Strong!
