"Here I'm standing, can't You see me?"
Arms open wide, I thought I heard You say....
"Run for cover, I'm exploding!
Can't You see my insides, have opened up again?"
Cause You've been missing round town,
no one seems to see Your smiling face around,
in Your own place & Your feeling down,
it's hard to hear it my old friend~
You've been hiding Yourself,
and hiding Your Soul up on the shelf,
sharing Your fears with no one else,
don't let this burden be Your end~
If a Soul was seeking some shelter,
would You hide? Or try to let them in?
If all Your ghosts were discovered,
oh would You rise, and face the day again?
Cause Walking Around inside of Your head
is someone strong...
Don't ever forget when things go wrong,
it's hard to find the strength to say.....
"That this is my life and all I can do
is take the time & see things through,
when things are fine,
I know I'm gonna feel the sweet sunshine~
Oh cause I, oh I took the time to say,
"I'm gonna stand up & rise above!"
Why do I try? Why do I sigh?
Hang my head up high...
cry that I am so abused & that I am so misused?
Why do I sigh?
Claim that I'm stuck in a way that fears goodbyes...
Deny myself a life, too scared of growing old and dying?
Oh cause I, wish I had the strength to say...
"gonna stand up... and rise, oh rise above~
