You have to stand up to love

You have to stand up to love
No matter what you do
You cannot see the precious need
You have to stand up to love

Crawling from the wreckage
You feel the falling rain
The sea breeze brings some laughter
Across the land of pain

With all the life that’s in you
You light the candle flame
With all the strength that’s in you
You wave then to the train

You build a house of stone
That others then bring down
Those dreams are still within you
Leaning on a walking cane

you take out your tape measure
But it isn’t long enough
You need some bigger weights
To measure out your love

The light of love is shining
Looking down on you
Will you cast a shadow?
What will you do?
