I'm Standing Here for You

Latest complete song. Finished it up at AIM last week.

This song is a reflection of the mere troubles we face as Christians. Mainly Christians in high school. There is the teasing, the laughter, the "are you kidding me?" We are looked at as different people. Sometimes different people don't always fit in. And we weren't meant to fit it.

As Christians we should stand out. Stand out tall, stand out proud, and be a shinning light in the darkness. There's not point in standing with your other Christian friends. There's already light there. Shine your light where there isn't light. Make it worthwhile.

This song is dedicated to my friend Rebecca. She's a strong girl, and a strong Christian. No matter where life takes her I know she's going to be a shining light. May this song be an encouragement to her in where ever God may lead her.


I'm Standing Here for You
(7.24.08)


Passing glances, from people's faces
Sometimes make me wish, I was other places
But I'm standing here for you
And there's laughter coming from all my friends
I keep wondering, will this ever end
But I'm standing here for you

So I'll stand straight and tall
I will not fall
Because the wind that blows against me is the wind that you call
With your courage on my shoulders
I feel stronger and bolder
And in everything I say or I do
I'm standing here for you

Their whispers seem to, follow me
Seem to cut me down, but they still see
I'm standing here for you
And I will not, accept defeat
I'm holding your hand, so I will never be beat
And I'm standing here for you

So I'll stand straight and tall
I will not fall
Because the wind that blows against me is the wind that you call
With your courage on my shoulders
I feel stronger and bolder
And in everything I say or I do
I'm standing here for you

And when the rain is pouring down
Earthquakes shaking the ground
And my feet are beginning to stumble
I cry out in fear
My face is drowned in tears
And as you lift me up you remind me

Stand straight and tall
And you will not fall
Because that wind that blows against you is the wind that I call
With my courage on your shoulders
You'll feel stronger and bolder
So in everything you say or you so

I'll stand straight and tall
And I will not fall
Because the wind that blows against me is the wind that you call
With your courage on my shoulders
I feel stronger and bolder
So in everything I say or I do
I'm standing here for you

I'm standing here for you
I'm standing here for you




"Because I got to say, I was really impressed with your music. I love the passion that's behind it."
