2017 Off-Broadway
The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson Musical - Strong Lyrics


"Strong" is a song performed by Carrie Compere (Sally), Chris McCarrell (Percy) from The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson Musical.

SALLY
I can't tell you all my secrets

PERCY
Maybe you should start with one

SALLY (spoken)
You're right

(sung)
I'll show you where I met your dad
He'd be proud of his son

PERCY (spoken)
Who cares?

(sung) We're better off without him

SALLY (spoken) No

(sung)
It's time you found out
More about him

PERCY (spoken)
Wow, look at the size of those waves

SALLY (spoken)
Fire's going. Somebody needs a marshmallow, and they're blue!
Don't tell me you're too old for blue food

PERCY
You met dad on this beach?

SALLY
I first saw him in the water
Coming out of the morning mist
He was handsome, strong
And before too long-
You came
To exist

PERCY (spoken)
And he ditched us

(sung)
No coming home for dinner
Yeah, he sounds like a real winner

SALLY (spoken)
Percy, he didn't have a choice. He wanted to meet you,
and he warned me that things might be hard if you were... like him

PERCY (spoken)
Was he a screw up too?
Sorry, mom. If I was only... normal-

SALLY (spoken) Hey

(sung)
Blue food isn't normal
Blue food is strange
And that's why it's my favorite
I never want it to change

To make it boring orange or green
Why be blah
When there's aquamarine

Normal is a myth
Everyone has issues they're dealing with

PERCY (spoken)
Mom, if you're weird, you're weak

SALLY
That's where you're wrong
The things that make you different
Are the very things that make you
Strong
So, be strong

(spoken) You'll see, you're destined for great things.

PERCY (spoken)
The only thing I seem to be destined for is detention.

(sung)
I can't focus
I stink at school
My A.D.D. gets the best of me
Dyslexia: not cool

SALLY
Just hang on son
One day you'll find
You'll leave that boring little life behind

BOTH
Normal is a myth
Everyone has issues they're dealing with

SALLY
And there's a place
You need to go
Where you belong

Where the things that make you different
Are the things that make you special
Special like your father
Yes, Percy, you are special

Like food the color blue
All the things that make you, you
Are the things
That will make you
Strong

BOTH
So be strong
