Where You Stand

Album: Where You Stand (2013)
  • Bumper car me left or right
    I'll take a thousand knocks
    There's a happy man in there
    And you won't blink your eyes
    Like all the things you lost before I
    Right where you left me you know-oh
    Like all the things you found
    Mmm mmm
    Don't taste them just swallow them whole

    I forfeit my time
    And wait
    While you make up your mind
    So tell me
    If you ever find your flag
    Cause I will be right by you where you stand

    Lift me up or tear me down
    I'll stand right up again
    There's happy soul in there
    But you won't let him in
    Like all the things we say before me
    Crumble and fall to the floor
    Like all the things we try
    Aye aye
    I know where it's headed and so

    I forfeit my time
    And wait while you re-make up your mind up
    So tell me
    If you ever find your flag
    Cause I will be right by you where you stand
    Oh I will be right by you where you stand
    I will deliver
    Where you stand I will not fall
    Where you stand there is no ocean
    Nor a river nor a shore

    I fall into line
    And wait while you make up your mind
    So tell me if you ever find your flag

    I forfeit my time
    And wait
    While you make up your mind
    So tell me
    If you ever find your flag
    Cause I will be right by you where you stand
    Oh I will be right by you where you stand
    Oh I will be right by you where you stand Writer/s: Douglas Payne, Francis Healy, Holly Victoria Partridge
