Help You Stand

words/music: Mark Melloan

Verse 1:

You're down on things that used to be
the things to pick you up,
But you got up, and you came down,
So take my hand and hold on like
your life depends on love,
I'll help you up off the ground

Pre-Chorus 1:

One day, it not's hard to feel like
life's not all that hard to live and
one day, it takes all you've got to give,
One dream's on its way to
making meaning out of empty space
right as something real just slips away

Chorus 1:

When you need a friend,
When you need a heart that understands,
When you need some help to find yourself,
here's my hand,
Baby, I can help you stand

Verse 2:

Oh, come be one half of us,
Come be the one that I'm half of,
We're both saints here,
We've got hearts of gold,
and we know we're headed home
when this day's done

Chorus 2:

When you need a friend,
When you need a heart that understands,
When you need some help to find yourself,
here's my hand,
Baby, I can help you stand

Pre-Chorus 2:

One dream's on it's way to
making meaning out of empty space,
Don't something real just slip away

Chorus:

When you need a friend,
When you need a heart that understands,
When you need some help to find yourself,
I'll be right here

Coda:

Get on up, open up your eyes,
Get on up, it's time to rise,
Get on up, rise and shine,
Get on up, it's gonna be just fine,
Get up, baby, everything's alright,
Get up, baby, and shine your light,
Get on up, and take my hand,
Get on up, I can help you stand
