Little darling belle with such a fragile shell In the powerful way that love seems to make her All regret it now And if shed only say whats wrong- she cant on You've got to be strong now And if I come and hold you now You'll be safe and sound Make a lonely face That no one ever sees You see the things she believes Since life is bittersweet and She'd open up to me And it's the only thing she dreams You've gotta believe You've got to be strong now And if i come and hold you now You've got to be strong now If I hold you now If I hold you now If I hold you now... Ooh god if I could change a thing tonight We won't be lonely Ooh god if I could change a thing Why does it have to be this way You have to be strong now And if I come and hold you now You've got to be strong now If I hold you now If I hold you now

Video Info: James Iha's first video/single. Be Strong Now was not a chart topper though. Directed by Sophie Muller. It took two days to film. The video shows James in a house walking around, sipping tea, looking out a window, and playing guitar/ Also has a woman walking around sad til she's sees the stars in the sky. She knocks on the door and they meet. "The storyline of the video is a double life with this girl Francesca" James said on MTV live.
Other Info: James says, "I wrote this song about a girl who had very low self-esteem and couldn't seem to express herself. I imagined what she could trust, like a best friend or a lover." (Source:The Official James Iha Website(jamesiha.com) )
