Standing

Have we all lost touch with ourselves?
Are we all wearing these masks that have become permanent?
Where has originality gone,
mixed in with broken dreams
or maybe they weren’t broken at all,
just given up on.

Have we all lost touch with ourselves?
Lost in a world filled with classes
where if we aren’t them
we are nobody.

(Chorus 1)
Well here I am standing,
Taking a stand for myself
& here I am living
Living my life for me not someone else
Throw your hands up if you agree
Its time for a change.

I keep searching,
for the trueness in people,
trying to find out who they really are.
I watched a little girl put on makeup,
wanting to be a star.
Little does she know,
stars are just people
who’ve lost who they are.

(Chorus 2)
Well here I am standing,
For that little girl
trying to change all who she is,
just to find a place in this world.
Throw your hands up if you agree
Its time for a change.

There’s this boy I know,
who fell in love with a girl
she told him she didn’t want him
if he was the last one in the world
he went home and wrote a letter,
signed it in blood
took his own life
she cried so many tears and now
she couldn’t tell him she lied.

(Chorus 3)
Well here I am standing,
For that boy and girl
Torn apart by this judgemental world
Nothing should matter if your in love
but how do you define that range?
Throw your hands up if you agree
Its time for a change.

(Chorus 1)
Well here I am standing,
Taking a stand for myself
& here I am living
Lives my life for me not someone else
Throw your hands up if you agree
Its time for a change.
