lyrics

I see a tidal wave a-comin' in
I'm wide eyed and I'm wondering
If I should be bothered to run away
See, when I's a boy I learned to swim
Much too old, now, to start drowning
Preparing my whole life to face this day

And the whole world is holding it's breath
Yeah, the heavens' eyes are all upon me now
Oh, I'm not a fool to lie
And say that I'm not scared to death
But I am steadfast
I was born to stand my ground

You are sails on the horizon
Leaving stormy skies behind you
Ain't no anchor built could ever make you stay
No, you worked your hands too long
You bled your love 'til it was gone
Ain't no flowers growin' in soil watered this way

And the whole world is holding it's breath
Yeah, the heavens' eyes are all upon you now
And all you want is one last glimpse
To look behind at what you left
But you are steadfast
You were born to stand your ground

I want so badly to admit
I'll miss you more than life itself
But I am steadfast
I was born to stand my ground
