Stand tall

   Stand Tall


 
Sometimes I think of the past and how fast it's passed
It seems like time has ran out of my grasp at last
The hurt and pain that bursts with shame is something I have no control of
If you tried to take me down you can't because what I have left is love
 
Stand Tall, Stand Tall!
I will never bow down , at all
No matter how hard it gets
I will stand tall even if I sweat
 
Time has really come and gone
I will always remember what you did was wrong
I've alway took in the hits and kicks, heck you beat me down
Here's the little twist you missed, I bet you thought I wouldn't come around
 
Stand Tall, Stand Tall!
I will never bow down, at all
No matter how hard it gets
I will stand tall even if I sweat
 
No matter how much pain you made me swim in
I look at today and I am up and livin'
You want to manipulate and make me up a story
I don't want this man to get people doing things for me
 
Stand Tall, Stand Tall!
I will never bow down, at all
No matter how hard it gets
I will stand tall even if I sweat
 
Today I take a look, I feel like I am shook
I keep thinking to stay on my feet
So I don't make the same mistakes that won't repeat
I am here now and for always, I am a clouded cloud through all days
 
Stand Tall, Stand Tall!
I will never bow down, at all
No matter how hard it gets
I will stand tall even if I sweat
