Jazmine Sullivan – Stand Up Lyrics

Lyrics Stand Up – Jazmine Sullivan

I used to hide from the light
I was coward, too ashamed to be me
So afraid of my power
‘Ti momma said, I got somethin’ to offer
Just look in the mirror to see it
Now it’s up to you to believe it

You got a purpose
What is your reason
What is you fightin’ for
I see you searchin’
It’s burnin’ inside
It’s somethin’ you can’t ignore
Yeah, everyone’s hurtin’
But you gotta fight, get up and keep forward
See, don’t back away with your hand up
‘Cause somebody need you stand up

See I’ve been tryin’ my best, every time, I wait
To find my meaning in everything
I’m done wastin’ season, this time don’t wait
You countin’ on me
And I’m countin’ on you

Yeah, ayy, so now when I show up
I know I’m goin’ up for everybody to see
And I stand for the babies, the fellas, the ladies
And everybody in need
For the lost and forgetten way
Hey, so now when we show up
We’ll know that we holdin’ up somethin’
That’s bigger than you and me

You got a purpose
What is your reason
What is you fightin’ for
I see you searchin’
It’s burnin’ inside
It’s somethin’ you can’t ignore
Yeah, everyone’s hurtin’
But you gotta fight, get up and keep forward
See, don’t back away with your hand up
‘Cause somebody need you stand up

See I’ve been tryin’ my best, every time, I wait
To find my meaning in everything
I’m done wastin’ season, this time don’t wait
You countin’ on me
And I’m countin’ on you
Everybody here have somethin’ to do
Yeah, let your fire, it makes you move
It’s somethin’ so special that gets so smooth
You countin’ on me
And I’m countin’ on you

Take up your faith
Baby, shake up the place
You can break all the rules
Someone’s countin’ on you
Do believe in yourself
‘Cause ain’t nobody else
Who can do what you do
Someone’s countin’ on you

Yeah, yeah
Hey-hey, ayy-ayy, yeah…
