Patty Loveless — I Don't Wanna Be That Strong lyrics

Almost nothing shakes me.
I'll admit tonight i'm scared, scared to death.
All this talk of leavin',
Walkin' away from love we've shared takes my breath.
I could find the strength within myself.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/patty-loveless-i-dont-wanna-be-that-strong-lyrics.html ]
But i don't wanna be that strong.
I don't wanna know that feeling,
Of barely hangin on while my broken heart is healing.
I know the hands of time would hold me until all the hurt is gone.
I could make it on my own,
But i don't wanna be that strong.

I could hold my head up.
I could keep the tears inside for a while.
Fill the anxious days.
Somehow face the lonely nights for a while.
When I need to I could even force a smile.

But i don't wanna be that srong.
I don't wanna know that feeling,
Of barely hanging on while my broken heart is healing.
I know the hands of time would hold me until all my hurt is gone.
I could make it on my own,
But I don't wanna be that strong.
