STAND TALL!

©2017 Words And Music Lisa Brockwell

(acceptance, freedom, respect, responsibility, truth, )

 

Chorus:

Stand tall and hold your head high

No matter what the day brings

You can let your light shine!

You can let your light shine!

Bee bop en do ahh shoobee do ahh

Bee bop en do ahh shoobee do ahh     (last time: Yeah!)

 

Freedom’s yours, choice is all up to you

You can change your world with what you think, say and do

For when you’re seeing life in a positive way

You’re feeling lighter and you brighten your day!

Come on and …

 

Love yourself, it’s important to do

Treat yourself well, there is only one you!

And as you share the gift of love that you are

Accept love too; open wide your heart!

Come on and …

 

Own your feelings they belong only to you

No one can make you feel the way that you do

People see their lives in so many ways

If they’re unpleasant, they’re responding their way

Come on and …

 

As a candle changes dark into light

All things negative, you can change with your light

Like with doubt and fear, your light is your faith

You can shine your light in so many ways!

Come on and …

 

When stormy clouds darken your skies

Why not, put up a rainbow? Create some fun in your life!

What ever happens, life still goes on

Take a deep breath; choose how you wish to respond!

Come on and …
