This “live” version of ‘Stronger Than I’ features songwriter Daniel Warren Hill on vocals and acoustic guitar, Jamie Rasmussen on backing vocals and bass, Eric Sanford on percussion, Kyle Crosby on keyboards, and special guest Ben Tufts on drums, and his first time collaborating with the band.
The song is a reflection of the weight caused by anxiety, at least personally, in questioning my ability to live up to my own potential or the potential that others see in me. In many ways the song is a request for the listener to find someone else to lift up, someone else to be placed on a pedestal, and even to find someone else to “believe in” because of my own doubts towards my personal capabilities. Although, there is a glimmer of recognition towards future achievement: “Until I become the hero of your dreams, is there no one stronger than me? Stronger than I am?”
