Stand Up
 
To all those who’ve given up on dreams
My heart cries out for you
Because you’ve lost the faith and hope
That those dreams can still come true
You walk a path guarded by fears
Never let another in
Afraid of failure that might come
You don’t try so you can’t win
Hands in fists, trembling
Legs buckle beneath you
You would rather hear the happy lies
Than know the ugly truth
You close your eyes to all that’s real
And live in make-believe
Scared to look reality in the face
So you won’t let yourself leave
You have to walk
Because you’re afraid to run
You never stop
You’re too scared of being done
Living a lukewarm life since
You’re scared of the burn of heat
Even when you know to take a stand
Instead you take a seat
You may wonder how I know this
This pain can be so hard to see
I’ve walked this path you’re taking
I’ve learned these things from me
So take a risk, make a change
Steer yourself off track
Take two steps forward
And don’t you dare look back
