STAND UP

i hope you don’t mind
i told everyone how well i’m doing
ever since i met you

i hope you don’t care
i told everyone how good you seem
i shook my head yes and said so

with authority

i hope you don’t fret
i tell people such things
often on your behalf
if your name comes up
i stand up for you

or i bring it up
you never said i could
and maybe i’ve no right to
and you probably don’t know i do it

wouldn’t think one would

you know i never worry
i never lose any sleep
ever since i met you

you know i never dwell upon
i never shed a tear
it’s all about as natural as breathing

i stand up for you

i defend
go to battle
stick up for
speak well of
stand up.
standup
