Lost touch with my soul
I had no where to turn
I had no where to go
Lost sight of my dream,

Thought it would be the end of me
I thought I'd never make it through
I had no hope to hold on to,
I thought I would break

I didn't know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain

I didn't know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up

Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn't know my own strength

Found hope in my heart,
I found the light to life
My way out the dark
Found all that I need
Here inside of me

I thought I'd never find my way
I thought I'd never lift that weight
I thought I would break

I didn't know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain

I didn't know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up

Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn't know my own strength

There were so many times I
Wondered how I'd get through the night I
Thought took all I could take

I didn't know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain

I didn't know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up

Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn't know my own strength

I was not built to break
I got to know my own strength
