Lyrics

The Troubletones:
Ah, ah, ah, ah,
Ah, ah, ah, ah,
Ah, ah, ah, ah,
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Santana with The Troubletones harmonizing:
You know the bed feels warmer
Sleepin' here alone (Sleepin' here alone)
You know I dream in color
And do the things I want

Brittany:
You think you got the best of me
Think you've had the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I'd come running back
Baby, you don't know me, 'cause you're dead wrong

Mercedes with The Troubletones:
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

Santana with Mercedes:
You heard that I was starting over with,
Someone new
They told you I was moving on,
Over you

Brittany (with The Troubletones):
(You didn't think that I'd come back)
(I'd come back swinging)
You try to break me, but you see

Mercedes with The Troubletones (The Troubletones):
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
(Stand a little taller)
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
(What doesn't kill you makes a) fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone

(What doesn't kill you makes you) stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
(What doesn't kill you) makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone!

Santana:
Thanks to you I've got a new thing started!

Mercedes:
Thanks to you I'm not the broken-hearted!

Santana:
Thanks to you I'm finally thinking about me!

Mercedes and Santana:
You know in the end,
The day you left was just my beginning

Santana:
In the end

Santana (and Mercedes) with The Troubletones:
(What doesn't kill you makes you stronger)
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a (fighter)
(Footsteps even lighter)
(Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone)

What doesn't kill you makes you (stronger, stronger!)
Just me, myself and I (Mercedes: Yeah!)
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little (taller!)

Santana with The Troubletones (Mercedes):
Doesn't mean I'm lonely (Brittany: What doesn't kill you) when I'm alone (No, not alone)
Stronger, stronger (Yeah)
Just me, my (Brittany: What doesn't kill you) self and I (Yeah!)
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger (Stronger!)
Stand a little taller (Stronger!)
Doesn't mean I'm lonely (Brittany: What doesn't kill you) when I'm alone (Not alone)

The Troubletones:
Ah, ah, ah, ah,
Ah, ah, ah, ah,
Ah, ah, ah, ah,
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Trivia

  • This is the first performance of The Troubletones as part of New Directions. In Hold on to Sixteen, Quinn had struck a deal with both Rachel and Will to allow the Troubletones to perform one song per competition in exchange for their return to New Directions.
  • The original song by Kelly Clarkson was named as "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)." It is unknown why the change in the name was made. 

Errors

  • At 0:42-0:46, Santana's hairband slips down her head, and it looks like she has a ponytail.
  • During the performance, near 1:24-1:25, Santana is singing the bridge. Behind her, you can spot a camera woman. Source
  • At the start, you see Santana's hand moving up, then when it zooms in on her, within less than a second, her hand is down along her body (19–20 seconds in video).
  • At 28:45, you can see Mercedes mess up her hand gesture.
