|\S: When you s||ee her in the evening in a bright green dress|
|\S: Walking f||ast down the hallway you might never gu||ess|
|\S: That the l||ady has a weakness she's reluctant to conf||ess.|
|\N: No, you m||ight not notice when I'm dancing reels|
|\N: That I m||ade it through the airport on a s||et of wheels,|
|\N: And I'm st||ill not certain that I like the way that it f||eels.|
F \S: With her l over right behind her lookin' tired but proud
C \N: We were wh eelin' our way through the airport crowd;
C G \SN: And the w ay it made her feel made her want to weep out l oud.
C \N: 'Cause we were c uttin' past the line at the TSA
F C \N: Asking h ealthy young people to get out of our way
G C G7 \S: S avin' her strength to make it through another d ay.
|\S: When she h||as a good day she can walk a mile|
|\S: D||ance through the evening with grace and st||yle|
|\S: Greet her l||over at the door with a tight embrace and a sm||ile;|
|\S: Next m||inute she's collapsing like she's half-way dead|
|\S: With a f||ire in her body and an||aching head|
|\S: And she'll p||ay with pain and the rest of the weekend in b||ed.|
F \N: So with my l over right beside me lookin' calm and cool
C \N: I walk up to the counter feeling like a fool
C G \N: And tr y to tell myself that a wheelchair's only a t ool.
C \N: Soon I'm wh eelin' past the line at the TSA
F C \N: Feeling w eird watching people getting out of my way
G C G7 \N: But it's the easiest journey in years to the end of the d ay.
|\S: Well, her b||ody is a battleground and life's a war,|
|\S: And she's l||ost against her limits many times bef||ore;|
|\S: But sh||e's still fightin' with a few new tricks in st||ore;|
|\N: Because a wh||eelchair is a weapon, not a mark of defeat|
|\N: And she can st||ay standing longer with some t||ime off her feet|
|\N: The b||attle isn't over, and winning will be sw||eet.|
F \SN: With her l over right behind her lookin' fierce and proud
C \SN: They'll be c utting a swath through the airport crowd
C G \SN: The w ay it makes her feel will make her want to laugh out l oud.
C \SN: 'Cause she'll be wh eelin' past the line at the TSA
F C \SN: Watchin' t ough young punks scurry out of her way
G C G7 \SN: S avin' her strength to make it through another d ay.
G6 G C F C \N: Yeah, s avin' my strength--to fight another d ay.
