Good Riddance — Stand lyrics

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!
