Stand Up Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
We were kids
Lookin' out into nothin'
Lookin' for a way to get around the night
We were kids
Holdin' out for a dream
We were born to be wild and free
Or sit alone online
Verse 2
But I don't wanna wait
Sit the other side of these flood lights
Dreaming up a way to escape
Anyone around?
Give me mission control, give me a sound on the radio
Verse 3
Stand up and be counted
Before we slip away out here
Before we slip away, slip away
Don't ever doubt it
Even if we're surrounded
Don't wanna slip away, slip away
Verse 4
Slip away (slip)
Slip away (slip)
Verse 5
We were Kings
We were Queens of an empire
We were made out on the streets
We were all the same
Verse 6
So, if we're gonna break
If we're gonna tumble in a gunfight
Promise we'll be side by side
Say you'll there when the school gets closed
Say you'll be there when the rest don't show
Verse 7
Stand up and be counted
Before we slip away out here
Before we slip away, slip away
Don't ever doubt it
Even if we're surrounded
Don't wanna slip away, slip away
Verse 8
High on hope and high on fear
We were heartbreak of the year
We were stackin' up to fall
We were summers in the street
We were sunlight through the trees
We were born for silver screens
We were whispers in the dark
We were sleeping under stars
Say all of this is ours
We were rollercoaster screams
'Til our hearts burst at the seams
We're not gonna let it all out of control
Verse 9
Stand up and be counted
Before we slip away out here
Before we slip away, slip away
