Before the next teardrop falls

I’m going to get out… I’m going to stand tall…

The paths I take may be lined with thorns

The turns I take may be all wrong

But the mistakes I make will all be mine

With these scratches and bruises I will be fine

I will wear them like a badge of pride

I will stand tall because I know that I tried

Enough tears have I spent a victim of your pride

Enough nights I have wept… enough have I tried

The next teardrop that falls

I will dust off… I will stand tall.
