#SkyNelson #StandForMe #Survivors
“Stand For Me”, is a song of survival and respect. When we stand up for others, we break down barriers of isolation. We all need to be stood up for.

lyrics

Stand for me
© Sky Nelson July 2018

I will not be minimized, shrink my size, avert my eyes
That has been already tried
and the less I need the more I disappear
I depend on you
There's no where I can go, I'm counting on you

I need you to stand for me
Give a thought to what I need
This isn't an emergency
I just need you to take a Stand For Me

You have found a garden you can go
To shutter out the pain you know
But that leaves me here on my own
To face the tyrant that is standing in the door
I believe in you
I’ve seen your courage shine when it needs to

I need you to stand for me
Give a thought to what I need
This isn't an emergency
I just need you to take a Stand For Me

There’s a risk you would be taking
If you choose my side
Certainty is not what love provides

I need you to stand for me
Give a thought to what I need
This isn't an emergency
I just need you to take a Stand For Me
I need you to stand for me
Give a thought to what I need
Please don’t give in quietly
I just need you to take a Stand For Me
