  • I am stronger than yesterday

    With all its pain and sorrow

    And I have made it through another night

    I am stronger than yesterday

    Each morning I fight to stand and face the sun

    Letting it bleach all my dark stains away and

    Shouting, Here I am, I exist

    I am stronger than yesterday

    As I shine a light in every dark corner

    Where the Black Dog has left its scent

    I am stronger than yesterday

    I need to be, because today I have to start all over again

    And fight those battles

    But I am stronger than yesterday

    Because yesterday I won another victory –

    I beat the day.
