Standing strong

(Wendy Matthews, Glenn Skinner)

Seems like all my live
I've been waiting for the day to come
When you'd turn to me and say just once
I've been wrong
But you threw your hat into the air
And caution to the wind
And whispered in my ear - Ooh you said

Chorus:
I'll pick you up and turn you round
I"ll leave you standing strong on solid ground
To save you from these, these shifting sands
To join the earth right here where I stand

Cross my heart
Cuz you know I knew it all along
I was waiting for the chance to show
I was strong
And Ooh I can feel it in the air
That freedom's on the wind
It's whispering in my ear freedom says

Chorus

They can keep on telling you
What's wrong & right
And spell it out in black & white
But don't you listen to a word they say
It doesn't matter anyway

They can keep on telling you
What's wrong & right
And spell it out in black & white
But don't you listen to a word they say
It doesn't matter anyway

Chorus, chorus, chorus

Say a prayer

(Jordan Knutson)

When you need a job so dog gone bad.
When "No help wanted" starts to drive you mad.
When your back is up against the wall
and there's nobody that you can call.
When you're stranded by the side of the road
there's no one to help you carry the load.

say a prayer ... say a prayer

When the midnight hour has come and gone.
That lonesome feeling is coming on.
You need somebody to walk with you
in these troubled times that we're going through
When you feel like life ain't treating you right.
Instead of staying up and crying all night.

say a prayer ... say a prayer

say a prayer ... say a prayer

Now take a look at this world and the shape she's in
and no one man can make it right again.
Now they tried this and they tried that.
Nothing's getting better and that's a fact.
No politician's found and answer so far.
Maybe we should all look inside our hearts.

say a prayer ... say a prayer ... say a prayer

Driving down the road.

say a prayer ... say a prayer

Early in the morning.

say a prayer

Late at night.

say a prayer

Everywhere.

say a prayer ... say a prayer ... say a prayer

You'll have to be on your knees.

say a prayer ... say a prayer (fading)
