I’m a closet Kelly Clarkson fan. I’m talking the old Kelly Clarkson, the one from 2004. That said, her new song “Stronger,” speaks to me, especially on hard days, which makes it a perfect addition to the Rejection Playlist.
You think you’ve got the best of me/ Think you’ve had enough the last laugh/ Bet you think that everything good is gone/ Think you left me broken down/ Think that I’d come running back/ Baby, you don’t know me, ’cause you’re dead wrong/ What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger / Stand a little taller/ Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone/ What doesn’t kill you makes you fighter
As a wordsmith, I find the last line trying a bit too hard, but I get what she’s saying.
