Some people hate and expect affection
Some people lie and demand the truth
I gotta ask myself if it's soul deception
Is this the natural thing that we all just do

We take such pleasure from pain, I'm just tired of playing that game
Some things you've got to change

Chorus:
You've got to stand and deliver, with your body and soul
Stand and deliver, just give me something to hold
Stand and deliver, if the truth can be told
We can make it together, if we stand - stand and deliver

Sometimes my mind drives me to distraction
I want to shut all the windows and lock the doors
And everytime I get a little bit of satisfaction
I see the walls come tumbling to the floor, yeah yeah yeah

I know in this life, you gotta stand up for what feels right
Each day and every night

(chorus)

(Solo)

I know in this life, you gotta stand up for what feels right
Each day and every night

(chorus)

Ohhh, ohhh, just give me something to hold
Stand and deliver, if the truth can be told
We can make it together, if we stand - stand and deliver

(chorus...)

Ohhh, ohhh
