    Default Could never get the strength of you

    Hello everyone,

    I'm not sure about the meaning of phrases like:
    "Could never get the strength of you", and:
    "Had the strength of you for a long time."
    Could somebody explain them to me?
    Thank you!
    Marcel

    It sounds to me as if the person wasn't able to judge how strong someone was.
