I Stand Up

This song is by Chicago and appears on the album Chicago 19 (1988).

You'll never lose me to temptation
Fighting the devil
And I beat the dragon, too

I'm at your rescue
I'm your faithful one
If it's the last thing
That I ever mean to do

I'm in deeper than you could know
The wise in me won't let it go
You can count on me, guarantee

(I stand up) I stand up
Believe in myself
(If you love somebody, stand)
(I stand up) I stand up
Give me a little respect
(If you need somebody, stand)

Out of the shadow
Yet I'm all right
It's not as easy
As I know it used to be

I don't have time to look behind me
I know the truth
And it's the truth that set me free

One more heart to heart to live for
One more time to stop the war
Inside of me, in spite of me

(I stand up) I stand up
Believe in myself
(If you love somebody, stand)
(I stand up) I stand up
Give me a little respect
(If you need somebody, stand)

Oh, whoa, yeah
Ooh, yeah

I stand up
Believe in myself
(If you love somebody, stand)
(I stand up) I stand up
Give me a little respect
(If you need somebody, stand)

(I stand up) I stand up
Believe in myself
(If you love somebody, stand)
(I stand up) I stand up
Give me a little respect
A little respect
(If you need somebody, stand)

If you love somebody, stand
(If you love somebody, stand)
If you need somebody
(If you need somebody, stand)

(I stand up) I stand up
Give me a little re,
A litte re, a little respect
(If you need somebody, stand)

(I stand up) I stand up
I stand up
(If you love somebody, stand)
(I stand up) I stand up
Gimme a little respect
(If you need somebody, stand)

I stand up, I stand up
(If you love...)
