>Stand Up

>I’ll stand up for you when others won’t
I’ll stand by your side when they said they will but inevitably they don’t
I’ll stand with you to fight for your cause
I’ll even write letters to my Congressman to help change the laws
I’ll let everyone know exactly how I feel
I won’t even care if I should lose my own appeal
I’ll stand up for you because I know that it’s right
I’ll even stand by your side when it’s time to fight
I won’t just say it’s ashame when people ask
I won’t say that I cannot add one more task
I won’t act as if because of you, that I am ashame
I won’t let anyone say bad things at the mention of your name
I won’t let them tell me that they hate to see you come
I’ll shut them down when they say the sound of your voice makes them numb
Because I care for you I won’t let them throw shade on your presence
And I’ll tell them why they should treat you better and be pleasant
I’ll wipe your eyes if I see you weep
And I won’t let you wish that you’d forever go to sleep
I won’t let you want to end your own life
I’ll remind you that this will all be over and there’s an end to your strife
