Yola – Stand For Myself Lyrics

I understand why you
Close your eyes
Why you deaf your ears
I realize now
You wanna feel nothing
Just like I was
A coward in the shadows
No view from above

Now I’m alive
It’s hard to explain
It took this much time
It took this much pain
You can get here
If you’re willing
Let go of yourself for a new beginning

It was easier to sit
Than stand for myself
It was easier to give in
Than stand for myself

I know why you hide away
Why you keep so quiet
Mind what you say now
You think you’re too much
Too hot to handle
You’re stronger than anyone
But still so fragile

It was easier to sing
Than stand for myself
It was easier to give in
Than stand for myself

It was hard enough
to go and live on
I was so tired
Trying to belong
I was lost in the city
You could see it in my eyes
But I was still a dreamer
In the middle of the night

Now I’m a-live, alive
I’m alive
I used to be nothing like you
I used to feel nothing like you
Now I’m a-live, alive
I’m alive
I used to be nothing like you
I used to feel nothing like you
Now I’m alive, alive
I’m alive
I used to be nothing like you
I used to feel nothing like you
Now I’m alive, alive
I’m alive! Ooh Yeah!
Ooh ooh
Ooh coo coo
Ooh coo coo
Ooh coo coo
Ooh coo coo
