Stand Yourself Lyrics

Powderfinger
If an apology from you meant anything
I'd accept it now with grace
But you and i both know
Its just a ploy for you to save some face
If you've had any self-respect
You'd would turn yourself in for your crime

Every time you tell yourself its alright
Everytime you go to sleep at night
Every time you tell yourself its alright
It just becomes a bigger lie

Inbetween days full of high pretention
Basking in the memories you hold so dear
Remembering the vibe of the fighting moments
The king making moneuvres and the grand ideas
Im glad to see the world through a different window
The glory doesn't colour every move i make
No lies no fiction no rose pink lense
Just a truthful look at the love i gave to you

Eveytime you tell yourself its allright
Everytime you go to sleep at night
Eveytime you tell yourself its allright
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

Halleluja i found love
Halleluja i found love

Even free saints pray for natures sinners
Reservein every medal that was so hard won
Folded to a chest in a mothers clutch
Relishing the low above distant sun
Now glad to see the world through a winter pallet
Colour wheels start between the green and blue
No white or snow melt no ice bound lakes
Just birds all strung across a cold war blueboy

Eveytime you tell yourself its allright
Everytime you kiss your kids goodnight
Eveytime you tell yourself its allright
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
