Just Stand Up

Just Stand Up

It’s  been a while since there was a really good musical collaboration, the last one being done for AIDS, and later used for the 9/11 attacks. Then again, maybe it took a while to come up with a production that would rival Bono’s.

And now it’s about time. This song actually makes me tear.

The heart is stronger than you think
Like it can go through anything
And even when you think it can’t it finds a way to still push on, though
Sometimes you want to run away
Ain’t got the patience for the pain
And if you don’t believe it look into your heart, the beat goes on

I’m telling you
Things get better through whatever
If you fall, dust it off, don’t let up
Don’t you know you can go be your own miracle?
You need to know

It’s like we all have better days
Problems getting all up in your face
Just because you go through it
Don’t mean it gotta take control
You ain’t gotta find no hiding place
Because the heart can beat the hate
Don’t wanna let your mind keep playing you
And saying you can’t go on

I’m telling you
Things get better through whatever
If you fall, dust if off, don’t let up
Don’t you know you can go be your own miracle?
You need to know

You don’t gotta be a prisoner in your mind
If you fall, dust it off, you can live your life
Let your heart be your guide
You will know that you’re good if you trust in the good
Everything will be alright
Light up the dark, if you follow your heart
And it will get better through whatever

If the mind keeps thinking you’ve had enough
But the heart keeps telling you don’t give up
Who are we to be questioning, wondering what is what?
Don’t give up
Through it all, just stand up
