if you don't feel good about it then turn around
if you really mean it baby stand your ground
no one's gonna take it for you, darling it's true
no one's gonna make it for you

if you feel like quitting now then try a little harder
the things we need the most they seem to take a little longer
no one's gonna try it for you, darling no one
no one's gonna wait there with you

just when you thought you would turn all your lights out it shines
some days all you need is one good thought strong in your mind

if you don't believe me you can go ahead and laugh
if you've got a sense of humor you're not so bad
no one's gonna hear it the same as it's said
no one's gonna listen to it straight from your head

if you feel like running out then stand in one place
when you're still and when you run there's something to face
no one's gonna see your life through, there's no way
i wouldn't want to know what you see every day

if you don't feel good about it then turn around
if you really mean it baby stand your ground
no one's gonna take it for you, darling it's true
no one's gonna wait there with you

just when you thought you would turn all your lights out it shines
some days all you need is one good thought strong in your mind

    My InterpretationI think this song is about someone who is dealing with life problems and have to face all of them by their own. The person seems to be sad because things are not happening at the moment he or she wants them to happen, but he or she needs to be patient ("the things we need the most they seem to take a little longer") and positive ("some days all you need is one good thought strong in your mind").
