Lyrics

I rushed past the protestors with signs
Thinking, how can people give up so much time
Nothing ever changes, rallies are a waste
Out of the crowd, I saw bright eyes, her wrinkled face

I was drawn to this old feisty woman?s force
Asked why she was there, she said to change life?s course
We each have a choice to make a better world
Speak with unity and change will soon unfurl

You?ve got to stand up now, for what you believe in
Stand up now, for change to begin
Stand up now, while we still have a choice
So stand up now, let?s hear your voice
Stand up now, let?s hear your voice

Then she vanished and I never got her name
The crowd of people swelled, their message was the same
On that day, she pulled my head out of the sand
Inspired by her strength, I?m here to take stand

You?ve got to stand up now, for what you believe in
Stand up now, for change to begin
Stand up now, while we still have a choice
So stand up now, let?s hear your voice
Stand up now, let?s hear your voice

She said don? you settle for complacency
It?s our only life to live
Fight with hope for human decency
We all have so much yet to give

You?ve got to stand up now, for what you believe in
Stand up now, for change to begin
Stand up now, while we still have a choice
So stand up now, let?s hear your voice
Stand up now, let?s hear your voice
