Testing The Strong Ones

This song is by Copeland and appears on the album Beneath Medicine Tree (2003).

There's an angel by your hospital bed
Desperate 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 gotta 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
