"Stand Up" as written by Juliette Jane Jaimes, Nigel Andrew Swanston and Tim Cox....
Look at all the lonely hearts
Shivering out in the dark
Hiding from the truth
Cover up the proof

Demons that I've tried to hide
Imprison me in my own lies
And all that I can do is cover up the proof
Don't be afraid to

(Stand up)
Stand up if you're broken
(Stand up)
Stand up if you feel ashamed
You are not alone when you hurt this way

(Stand up)
Stand up if you need love
(Stand up)
This is not Judgment Day
You don't have to hide, there's no need to run
Everything will be okay

Secrets got me torn apart
Trying to destroy my heart
But I can see the light
It?s cutting through the night

don't run away
(Don?t run away)
Don't be afraid to

(Stand up)
Stand up if you're broken
(Stand up)
Stand up if you feel ashamed
You are not alone when you hurt this way

(Stand up)
Stand up if you need love
(Stand up)
This is not Judgment Day
You don't have to hide, there's no need to run
Everything will be okay

You say you love me
That's all I?ll ever need
If you say I'm good enough
That's good enough for me

(Stand up)
Stand up if you're broken
(Stand up)
Stand up if you feel ashamed
You are not alone when you hurt this way

(Stand up)
Stand up if you need love
(Stand up)
This is not Judgment Day
You don't have to hide, there's no need to run
Everything will be okay

(Stand up)
(Stand up)
Stand up if you're broken
(Stand up)
This is not Judgment Day

    General Comment"They would be much better if they didn't attempt to use "God" in almost all of their songs. It's insulting... As if you have to be so obvious to be a Christian band. I honestly resent them for it."

    Honestly, that is one of the dumbest things I have ever read. Would you prefer a Christian band to sing about Satan? How can you despise a Christian band for singing about God?

    The band is probably my second favorite Christian band right behind Skillet and this is definatly one of my favorite songs, not only by them but overall, it's so powerful and sends a strong message and I love it

    General Comment"As if you have to be so obvious to be a Christian band" actually.... yea thats kinda important to be considered a Christian... let alone a Christian Band and Im sure that they Place Their Faith In God before what people say or think... when you have something so amazing in your life.. theres nothing you can Do... I honestly dont think that they could write a song that doesnt have a christian message even if they tried.. I know I couldnt... when God pours this love into you its Got nowhere to Go but out... its like trying hide a candle under a jar... whats the point? let the Light shine.... I really like this song not because of the sound but because of how motivating it is.. we Christians can sometimes face much harder times than Non christians

    General CommentAnyway for those who looked up this sone to find out what it means this comment will tell you.
    The song is saying that when you sin or fail or do something you wish you hadn't you shouldn't let the guilt and pain destroy you. You should stand up and try to do better tomarrow rather than lie in fear of yesterday.
