*** Stand Up ***

I never thought life could be so cruel
And now I have to break nearly every rule
Just to get survive
I need to get by

I get up in the morning and go to town
There's nothing there so I just hang around
Time passes by
But I still have to try

Stand up for what you want, stand up for all your needs
If you make your mind up, then you will succeed
Stand up for what you want, stand up for all your needs
If you make your mind up, then you will succeed

Been living here from day to day
Now I found out it's the only way
Where did I go wrong?
My life carries on, yeah

So now what's left for me to do?
I can't see no other way through
I don't want to steal
Just to get my next meal, yeah

Stand up for what you want, stand up for all your needs
If you make your mind up, then you will succeed
Stand up for what you want, stand up for all your needs
If you make your mind up, then you will succeed

I never thought life could be so cruel
And now I have to break nearly every rule
Just to get survive
'Cos I need to get by

Stand up for what you want, stand up for all your needs
If you make your mind up, then you will succeed
Stand up for what you want, stand up for all your needs
If you make your mind up, then you will succeed
Stand up for what you want, stand up for all your needs
If you make your mind up, then you will succeed
Stand up for what you want, stand up for all your needs
If you make your mind up, then you will succeed
