Lyric of the Month: September 2010

by Nic Olson

So here I stand, Alone by the side of the road,
And I’m reaching for you, Someone to hold,
something to cling to. I close my eyes, I shove my
hands in my pockets and smile, And the darkness
drifts away, I’m at peace, if only once in a
while.

You don’t understand. There’s nothing to say. When
everything seems lost, You can bet we’ll somehow
find a way.

Well, I’m feeling hurt, And I fought back
some tears of my own, But there’s something to be
said for the ones Who face the darkness alone.
You’re too cool to care; Too self-righteous to see
and believe. It’s a bond we’ll never break; A
chance for one more change of heart.

You don’t understand. There’s nothing to say. When
everything seems lost, You can bet we’ll somehow
find a way. Did your ever think about the ones on
top? Do you have the strength to shout it ready or
not? So I never thought I’d be the one
complaining, But I can’t believe it’s been inside
me all this time. So here I stand!

-Good Riddance, Stand
