It's dark and I'm
Trying to find
A state of mind where I can hide away
Knocking on people's doors
Greeted with open arms
But it's no secret, I'm not welcome where I stay
And I've been struggling on
Trying to belong
To face after familiar face
But I give in to fear
And a curtained room
With no comfort but the warmth in his embrace
Oh

Oh if I could say
Without being afraid
Or him raising a hand
I'd say you know I have hopes
I have dreams and I have

The right to make a stand
So here is the line
The line to my place
The place that I call my own
And you will leave me alone
'Coz
Here I stand

It's cold outside
Crouched by a light
Holding up pictures in the same hand as my smoke
How happy I was then
Look at my smile
I must have been on dope
How the times have changed
How little danger
I get into by choice
Kids they keep me sane
Numb from the pain
'Coz they know how to raise their voices
Oh

Oh if I could say
Without being afraid
Or him raising a hand
I'd say you know I have hopes
I have some dreams
And I have the right to make a stand
So here is the line
The line to my place
The place that I call my own
And tell them
Here I stand

Here I stand
Here I stand
Here I stand

Oh if I could say
Without being afraid
Or him raising a hand
I'd say you know I have hopes
I have some dreams
And I have the right to make a stand
So here is the line
The line to my place
The place that I call my own
And tell them all
Here I stand

Oh 'cuz

Here I stand
