Do you ever get a break?
I haven't had one in so long.
People see how long it's been
and they tell me I am strong.

Do you ever tell the truth?
I keep trying now and then.
It's a risky thing to tell it -
hurts like hell to hold it in.

Sometimes I feel like Samson,
I want to tear this temple down.
If I were buried in the rubble,
who would look till I was found?

Maybe this is how you do it,
maybe this is being strong.
But I'd like to have a break,
I haven't had one in so long.
New blues. Samson is the legendary biblical strong man who pulled a temple down on himself and his enemies. The Rev. Gary Davis's song "Samson and Delilah" has the line, "If I had my way I would tear this old building down."

You don't give way to bitterness. I admire that so much in you.
