Stand Up

Album: Up All Night Limited Yearbook Edition (2011)
  • From the moment I met you, everything changed
    I knew I had to get you, whatever the pain
    I had to take you and make you mine

    I would walk through the desert
    I would walk down the aisle
    I would swim all the oceans just to see you smile
    Whatever it takes is fine

    So put your hands up
    Cause it's a stand up
    And I won't be leaving 'til I finish stealing every piece of your heart
    Every piece of your heart

    I know your hearts been broken
    But don't you give up
    I'll be there, yeah I know it
    To fix you with love
    It hurts me to think that you've ever cried

    So put your hands up
    Cause it's a stand up
    And I won't be leaving 'til I finish stealing every piece of your heart
    Every piece of your heart
    So put your hands up
    Cause it's a stand up
    And I won't be leaving 'til I finish stealing every piece of your heart

    And I will steal us a car
    And we will drive to the stars
    I will give you the moon
    It's the least I can do if you give me the chance

    So put your hands up
    Cause it's a stand up

    (I'm a thief, I'm a thief)
    You can call me a thief
    (I'm a thief, I'm a thief)
    But you should know your part
    (I'm a thief, I'm a thief)
    I'm only here
    (I'm a thief, I'm a thief)
    Because you stole my heart

    (I'm a thief, I'm a thief)
    So put your hands up
    (I'm a thief, I'm a thief)
    Cause it's a stand up
    And I won't be leaving till I finish stealing every piece of your heart

    Cause you stole my heart
    (I'm a thief, I'm a thief)
    Call me a thief
    (I'm a thief, I'm a thief)
    But you should know your part
    (I'm a thief, I'm a thief)
    I'm only here
    (I'm a thief, I'm a thief)
    Because you stole my heart Writer/s: ROY STRIDE, JOSH WILKINSON
