Testing the strong ones Lyrics by Stewart Copeland
Testing the strong onesby Stewart Copeland
There's an angel by your hospital bed
desparate to hear his name on your breath
As he looks down you're not making a sound
Open your eyes and look at me
I'll bring to you whatever you need
I'll tell you I'm sorry that I can't take this pain away from you
I'd put it on my own body if I knew how to, can't you see?
I've got to bust you out of here somehow
I've never seen your heart this tired
I've never seen your spirit held down
I know that you say, "this is what you get for being a bad child."
But I know this will be your reward in just a little while
It's testing the strong ones
It's scarring the beautiful ones
It's holding the loved ones one last time
