~ Stand Tall ~







~ Stand Tall ~

Never been this blue
Never knew the meaning of a heartache
But then again
I've never lost at love before
Somewhere down the road
Maybe all these years will find some meaning
I just can't think about it now
Or live 'em out anymore

Stand tall, don't you fall
God's sake, don't go and do something foolish
All you're feeling right now
Is silly human pride

Oh, stand tall, don't you fall
Don't do something you might regret later
You're feeling it like everyone
It's silly human pride

Never lasted so long
Or through so much or through so many
I just can't believe
I could throw it all away

Sometimes late at night
When there's nothing here
Except my old piano
I'd almost give my hands
To make you see my way

Stand tall, don't you fall
Oh, for God's sake
Don't go do something foolish
All you're feeling right now
Is silly human pride
You got me down on my knees
For you mama

Stand tall, don't you fall
Oh, don't do something you'll regret later
You're feeling it like everyone
It's silly human pride

You got me fallin' again
For you mama
Stand tall, don't you fall
Don't do something you'll regret later
You're feeling it like everyone
It's silly human pride

And pride is taking less than you need."
