about

I wrote "Steel" for a call for a song for a feature film scene involving a single mother who is dealing with substance abuse and contemplating suicide. It is dedicated to anyone going through trials requiring more strength than they realize they have.

lyrics

STEEL
words and music by Rick Paul

It's hard being strong
When all you've got just leaves you hanging on
Somehow you stand the strain
But how much longer can you bear this pain

Oh, you brace yourself
For another storm that's blowing through
Yeah, you brace yourself
'Cause that black cloud keeps on chasing you

Just remember you are steel
Just remember you are steel
Just remember you are steel
You can bend, but don't break
You can bend

It's hard letting go
So much to lose, so much you've held so close
And so you face the wind
Close your eyes, and hold tight once again

And you brace yourself
For another storm that's blowing through
Yeah, you brace yourself
'Cause that's all you've ever known to do

Just remember you are steel
Just remember you are steel
Just remember you are steel
You can bend, but don't break
You can bend

You get knocked down, you get up
But when you reach your limit

Just remember you are steel
Just remember you are steel
Just remember you are steel
You can bend, but don't break
You can bend

But don't break
You won't break
No, don't break
Don't break
