I Didn't Know My Own Strength Lyrics - Whitney Houston

Review The Song (1)



Lost touch with my soul
I had nowhere to turn, I had nowhere to go
Lost sight of my dream
Thought it would be the end of me

I thought I'd never make it through
I had no hope to hold on to
I, I thought I would break

I didn't know my own strength
And I crashed down and I tumbled but I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn't know my own strength

Survived my darkest hour, my faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up, hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn't know my own strength

Found hope in my heart
sponsored links
I found the light to life my way out of the dark
Found all that I need here inside of me

I thought I'd never find my way
I thought I'd never lift that weight
I thought I would break

I didn't know my own strength
And I crashed down and I tumbled but I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn't know my own strength

Survived my darkest hour, my faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up, hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn't know my own strength

There were so many times I wondered
How I'd get through the night
I thought I took all that I could take

I didn't know my own strength
And I crashed down and I tumbled but I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn't know my own strength

My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up, I hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn't know my own strength

I was not built to break, no, no
I got to know my own strength

he song was written by award-winning writer Diane Warren and produced by David Foster, both of whom have written and produced for Houston before. The song was originally supposed to preceed the album's UK release on August 31, 2009 and U.S. release on September 1, 2009 but was cancelled in favor of "I Look to You" and "Million Dollar Bill".

Though never officially released, UK columnist Lizzie Smith reported in the The Daily Mail the song had been leaked to the internet prior to its official release date.[4] However, music mogul Clive Davis said at the album's official launch party in London that all of the tracks on the album remain unfinished. The song's release was originally confirmed by Diane Warren who told Vibe Magazine she had penned the single especially for Houston, and it would be released as the first single. At the album listening parties, Davis said the album track "Call You Tonight" was a candidate for the lead single. Following previous reports, this led to speculation that "I Didn't Know My Own Strength" would receive a limited release to generate buzz for the album, whilst a different song will be fully promoted and released to propel the album's release. Title song "I Look to You" was released as the U.S. lead single whilst "Million Dollar Bill" (the second U.S. release) became the international lead single. Houston performed the song on the Oprah Winfrey Show on September 15, 2009 and live on the 2009 American Music Awards broadcast. From Wikipedia

This is so well written & sure I could add or take but why. It was Whitney's conviction song of Love thru all the good and bad. I love the crazy Whitney. The Icon Whitney and all her function & dysfunction. Above all there is no one who has showed all her true sides & with such honesty. The Funny Sad and everything in-between. This song was for all of us. Especially now that she is gone yet her spirit endures forever - this and don't cry 4 me and the Sparrow all worked in a divine order. To not cry is easier said than done. At the GMA show when she paused with her hands reached out at that moment she felt such a great presence more so From Gods shining light then her own audience. Most Christians have it Wrong & r religious fanatics. Her Faith & Love & her Heart was all Gods Glory she shed with the world. No matter what anyone sqys Bobi Kris & Nick - these r the things she hopes 4 you all & the world. Christ Like of fqith hope compassion love understanding. Thats qll Christ came to share. Positive Aspects & she had it even thru the crazy times. Not Some crazy peace for a world order. peace within your soul(s). And God knows & the unblind know she was a crazy living spiritual freaking hilarious being & OK so she used drugs. Guess what, Many of us have & some stop, some don't, some slip... and so on. Understood & don't care cuz don't judge. The designed Nippy 4 production sakes & The Real Nippy Is Was and Will Always Be Gods Saint. Without human error & mistakes - we r not human. we r not wiser. So Love U Nippy n all your magnificent colors. Even your bad that some of us saw on Being Bobby Brown was Great. U were freaking hilarious, passionate, kind, loving, showing your child ike side that's so important & the side where men just at times irritate the hell out of us & had u of stayed with us in hine site & thru the years I think U really would have laughed at how crazy looking back. Plus is there 1 perfect true functional family. Had crazy things not hqve stqrted - you were still in love & would have stayed if daddy retardo had not dwelled in his own demonic ego self. Bobby let the fame go to his head. And All you wanted was to be a great Singer. That and being yourself. - there is nothing more an intellectual wise beautiful & so much that a person could asked 4. Wise Witty Funny Loving Faithful. Not perfect. PMS sometimes bloats us & makes us bitchy. Like Anyone U were human & entitled. I can't say anything more because There R Not enough Positive Adjectives To Describe Such A Colorful Person. Anyone wants to dwell on the negative - they r stupid. She gave us her all & how much more POSITIVE SAINTFUL ANGELIC could one be. No one can touch nto prob dare to
give & share all that Witty Nippy Gave. Lessons Belief Love God Beauty Normalcy. Show girl was the stage. Real Nippy was just that HERSELF! Gods Love Angel sent from above.
