That's What Makes You Strong

A                                        Bm
If you love somebody then that means you need somebody
       E                                  A
If you need somebody that's what make you weak
A                                   Bm
If you know your weak then you know need you someone
E
Oh it's a funny thing but
                     A
That's what make you strong
A
That's what make you strong
                      Bm
That's what gives you power
                     E                          A
That's what lets the meek  come sit beside the king
A                                       Bm
That's what let's us smile in our final hour 
                      E
That's what moves our souls and
                     A
That's what makes us sing
A                               Bm
And to  trust somebody is to be disappointed
                    E 
It's never what you wanted
                     A
And it happens every time
A
But if your the trusting kind
                Bm
This don't even cross your mind
E
Oh it's a funny thing but
                     A
That's what make you strong
A
That's what make you strong
                      Bm
That's what gives you power
                     E                          A
That's what lets the meek  come sit beside the king
A                                       Bm
That's what let's us smile in our final hour 
                      E
That's what moves our souls and
                     A
That's what makes us sing
