lyrics

How many times have you told yourself,
How many times have you told yourself, it’s time to take a stand?
How many times have you told yourself, it’s time to take a stand.
Time to pull your self up with your own bare hands.
How many times have you said to yourself, it’s time to take a stand.
Time to pull your self up, with your own bare hands
and take command.
And take control.
You don’t have to tell me. I already know.

Anything I say you better think about it.
Anything I think you better do.
Anything I think you better think about it, too.
Because it’s true.
Because it’s too true.
I was once like you.

How many times have you said that you were wrong?
How many times have you said that you were wrong, just to avoid a fight?
How many times have you said that you were wrong, just to avoid a fight,
knowing all along that you were right?
How many times have you said that you were wrong, just to avoid a fight,
knowing all along that you were right?
Was it hard to sleep at night?
Was it hard to let it go?
You don’t have to tell me. I already know.

Anything I say you better think about it.
Anything I think you better do.
Anything I think you better think about it, too.
Because it’s true.
Because it’s too true.
I was once like you.
