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   By: Robert Barrett
