Collection of Songs I
Standing Up Straight
I face the mirror everyday
But I see something different today.
Somehow I'm taller, pulled up proud
I swear I'm seeing head and shoulders
Above the crowd.
I made it through the reign of shame
Through anyone that I could blame.
I stood here empty, too little too late
Stood for lies, lies for years
But at least today I'm standing up
Straight to my mountain of fears
Through my river of tears
To the tower of power
Here and now I'm headed
Straight to my temple of true
And though my vision is new
You know I'm headed
Straight on my way to you.
Silence is broken, I'm undone
Now that I'm out of the game
I found out I won.
Birds off the wire, the bell has been rung
We wont be letting one more hero
I learned the hard way don't we all,
Before the rise must come the fall.
Come to me baby, I know I'm worth the wait,
I've been crawling on my knees ,
but at least today I'm standing up (ch)
It's a long way down to the ground when you
Finally, finally, know you're falling.
We always worry we're too late
Cant be the last out of the gate.
But now I'm learning to take the hand of fate,
Finding I'm right on time for whatever's mine
I'm standing up straight.
