  • 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 all right, you'll be all right

    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

    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
    And start holdin' on, keep holdin' on

    '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

    Every time you get up
    And get back in the race
    One more small piece of you
    Starts to fall into place

    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
    Yeah, baby
    Woo hoo, woo hoo, woo hoo, woo hoo
    Then you stand, yeah, yeah Writer/s: Blair Daly, Dan Earnest Orton
