Lily Brooke's New Song Stand (acoustic version)

Newcastle singer/songwriter Lily Brooke has been a friend of Forest Radio for many years and a contributor to the Engineering Paradise the Musical project since its inception. After a brilliant University career culminating in First Class Honours and a special award she is now a music tutor at University level and a frequent performer of her own and other people's music around Newcastle and the North East.

Lily says about this song: "I wrote a song during lockdown! I'm so grateful to everyone who has streamed Stand so far. This version is a highlight from my online charity gig for Youth Music - a live and acoustic version of Stand filmed in the back garden! Thanks to everyone who watched the live stream, and to Success Express & Go to Beat for running this amazing event."

LYRICS

Oh, we go, we go again
Through days and nights we live our lives
In stone cold captivity
What's that like to realise

We all live in a city
In bunk bed flats we break our backs
From 9 to 5, 9 to 5, sunset to sun arise
But not if I ...

I'll stand for you if you will stand for me
I'll sing for you if you are listening

Oh, we go, we go again
Through days and nights we live our lives
Through mundane activities
What's that like to live a lie

I live while the night is still young
Well what gift does God have in store for us?

And I'll stand for you if you will stand for me
I'll sing for you if you are listening, oh

Oh, we go, we go, we go again
Oh, we go, we go, we go again

Time to settle down
Time to join the crowd

Da da, da da da da,
Da da da da, da da da da da
Da da, da da da da,
Da da da da, da da da da da, Oh

And I'll stand for you if you will stand for me
I'll sing for you if you are listening, oh

Da da, da da da da,
Da da da da, da da da da da
Da da, da da da da,
Da da da da, da da da da da
