You feel like a candle in a hurricane
Just like a picture with a broken frame
Alone and helpless
Like you've lost your fight
But you’ll be alright

You’ll be alright
Chorus:
Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you're made of
You might bend, till you break
Cause it's all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you’ve had enough
You get mad you get strong
Wipe your hands shake it off
Then you Stand,
Then you stand
2.
Life's like a novel
With the end ripped out
The edge of a canyon
With only one way down
Take what you're given before it's gone
Start holding on, keep holding on
Chorus:
Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you're made of
You might bend, till you break
Cause it's all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you’ve had enough
You get mad you get strong
Wipe your hands shake it off
Then you Stand,
Yeah then you stand.
Bridge:
Everytime you get up
And get back in the race
One more small piece of you
Starts to fall into place
Ooohhh
Chorus:
Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you're made of
You might bend, till you break
Cause it's all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you’ve had enough
You get mad you get strong
Wipe your hands shake it off
Then you Stand,
Then you stand
Yeah then you stand.
Yeah then you stand.
Yeah baby
Ohhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhh
Ooohhhhhhh
Then you stand

    I love this song! It's such an inspiration. It helped me get through my daddy having cancer && taking chemotherapy. I cried when I heard this song. It's about not giving up, living your life to the fullest, not caring about what other people say, and being courageous. It's an amazing song.

    This song helped me so much. My youth group leader always tells me I will be always be alright but then she goes on a missions trip to Uganda and I didn't want her to go because i love her a lot and I miss her. there is a long story about the things with my youth group leader and me. what has happened to me i just wanted to quit but then i heard this song and my God it changed my whole life. I love this song!!

    This is an AMAZING song. I felt that it is the best song to listen to when you are upset or in a disappointment when your love one leaves you.

    Being able to find the beauty when everyone says there can be no beauty there. That everyone's got a story & that you cam either listen to it or ignore it . But which ever you choose , is what defines your character. That there's battles that need overcoming. & that you need to think about another persons place ,before you judge them . You don't know there story. That everything has a meaning , & that's the meaning of this song for me.
