"Stand Yourself" as written by Jonathan Robert Coghill, John Andrew Collins, Bernard Joseph Fanning, Ian David Haug and Darren Stuart Middleton....
If an apology from you meant anything
I'd accept it now with grace
Well you and I both know its just a prop to save some face
If you had any self respect you'd turn yourself in for your crime
Everytime you tell yourself its alright
Everytime you go to sleep at night
Everytime you tell yourself its alright
It just becomes a bigger lie
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight

In between days full of hypertension
Basking in the memories you hold so dear
Remember the guy with the violent home
Once a kid making manures and the grand ideas
I'm glad to see the world through a different window
And oh it doesn't colour every move I make
I'm glad its no fiction, no rose compense
Just a choose for the look at the love I gave to ya

Everytime you tell yourself its alright
Everytime you go to sleep at night
Everytime you tell yourself its alright
It just becomes a bigger lie
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight

Everything you say is pray for natures sinners
Deserving every pill that was so hard upon
Fold into the chest in the mother's crutch
Relish in the lure of a distant sun
Now I'm glad to see the world through the winter planet
Colour wheels stall between the green and blue
No white, no snow melt, no ice bound lakes
Just birds song strung across the cobalt blue

Everytime you tell yourself its alright
Everytime you kiss your kids goodnight
Everytime you tell yourself its alright
It just becomes a bigger lie
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight

    General CommentIf that apology from you meant anything

    Well you and I both know its just a ployfor you to save some face
    If you had any self respect you'd turn yourself in for your crime
    Everytime you tell yourself its alright
    Everytime you go to sleep at night
    Everytime you tell yourself its alright
    It just becomes a bigger lie
    I hope that you can stand yourself tonight

    In between days full of hypertension
    Basking in the memories you hold so dear
    Remember the vibrant, defining moments
    The king making manoeuvres and the grand ideas
    I'm glad to see the world through a different window
    Where glory doesn't colour every move I make
    No lies, no fiction, no rose pink lens
    Just a truthful look at the love I gave to you

    Everytime you tell yourself its alright
    Everytime you go to sleep at night
    Everytime you tell yourself its alright
    It just becomes a bigger lie
    I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
    I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
    I hope that you can stand yourself tonight

    Evergreen saints pray for natures sinners
    Preserving every petal that was so hard won
    Fold into her chest in a mother's crutch
    Relish in the lure of a distant sun
    Now I'm glad to see the world through the winter palette
    Where colour wheels stall between the green and blue
    No white, no snow melt, no ice bound lakes
    Just bird song strung across the cobalt blue, boy

    Everytime you tell yourself its alright
    Everytime you kiss your kids goodnight
    Everytime you tell yourself its alright
    It just becomes a bigger lie
    I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
    I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
