"Standing Strong" as written by Wendy Joan Matthews and Glenn Francis Skinner....
Seems like all my life
I've been waiting for the day to come
When you'd turn to me and say just once
I've been wrong
But you threw your hat into the air
And caution to the wind
And whispered in my ear - ooh you said

I'll pick you up
And turn you round I'll leave you standing strong
On solid ground
To save you from these shifting sands
To join the earth right here where I stand

Cross my heart
'Cause you know I knew it all along
I was waiting for the chance to show
I was strong
And o I can feel it in the air
That freedom's on the wind
It's whispering in my ear freedom says

I'll pick you up
And turn you round I'll leave you standing strong
On solid ground
To save you from these shifting sands
To join the earth right here where I stand

They can keep on telling you
What's wrong and right
And spell it out in black and white
But don't you listen to a word they say
It doesn't matter anyway
They can keep on telling you
What's wrong and right
And spell it out in black and white
But don't you listen to a word they say
It doesn't matter anyway

I'll pick you up
And turn you round I'll leave you standing strong
On solid ground
To save you from these shifting sands
To join the earth right here where I stand
