Lyrics

SPOKEN WORD:

Her face came to me 

In a dream that took me deep 

She may have been an angel

Or an echo

Calling me from sleep

 

VERSE 1:

She said, you never think about the sacrifice 

Said, you don’t remember the unholy price

And you can hide behind your sanctity 

But sometimes silence is complicity

 

Hold on she said don't let go of me 

I’m your present and I’m your history

All that you enjoy every setting sun

Came on the back of some unknown someone

 

CHORUS:

Stand up together we are never gonna fall

Stand up for those of us who cannot stand at all

Stand up for all the ones who stood for us before

Stand up ‘cause now 

We need to stand up even more 

 

VERSE 2:

She said, we’ll be watching from the satellites

A sea of lights will get us through the night

 ‘Cause nothing’s given nothing’s guaranteed

The best things in life aren’t always free

 

PRE-CHORUS:

Hold on she said don't let go of me 

I’m your present and I’m your history

All that you enjoy every setting sun

Came on the back of some unknown someone

 

CHORUS:

Stand up together we are never gonna fall

Stand up for those of us who cannot stand at all

Stand up for all the ones who stood for us before

Stand up ‘cause now 

We need to stand up even more

 

BRIDGE

I will be strong won’t be defined by fear

I promise I will carry on from here
