Walk Tall

Album: The Boxer (2010)
  • I don't know what you've been told
    I don't know what you've been told
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall

    I don't know what you've been told
    I don't know what you've been told
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall

    I don't know what you've been told
    I don't know what you've been told
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall

    I don't know what you've been told
    I don't know what you've been told
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall

    Rule number one, be bright like the sun
    Whether rude whether flawed like it's just begun
    Rule number one, be the only thing they see

    Rule number two, do all you can do
    Look them all in the eye and leave them to fly
    Rule number two, be as bright as you can be

    I'm getting taller
    I'm getting taller

    Rule number three, forget where you've been
    Cut your ties to the past and wave it goodbye
    Rule number three, take anything you need

    I got discipline appearing in marshals never caught before
    Just like a terminator walking like a skilled boy
    No, I couldn't stay, I've really got to go

    I'm getting taller
    I'm getting taller
    I'm getting taller
    I'm getting taller

    I'm getting taller
    I'm getting taller
    I'm getting taller
    I'm getting taller

    I don't know what you've been told
    I don't know what you've been told
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall

    I don't know what you've been told
    I don't know what you've been told
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall
    But this starts now, walk tall, walk tall
