Stand and Deliver by Patrick Droney

It’s the longest night of the darkest year
The one you learn that life can go and disappear
And the holy light is it gathering here
Cause how can he explain the kind of pain you feel

Said I just want to hold you
I don’t really know if I can fix this dear
Hate to see you hurting
No you’re not a burden
I volunteer

Won’t drown in the river
I’ll swim out to you
I’ll stand and deliver
I’ll carry through
If you lose all the meaning of
Life, love and truth
I’ll stand and deliver
I’ll show up for you

It comes to pass, don’t come to stay
But heal these wounds
When you had a very bad day
As long as we are living
The dessert is our lie
We’ll hold on to each other in the darkest and the light

Won’t drown in the river
I’ll swim out to you
I’ll stand and deliver
I’ll carry through
If you lose all the meaning of
Life, love and truth
I’ll stand and deliver
I’ll show up for you
I’ll stand, stand and deliver (x4)

Even though you’ve been low, oh darling
You got someone to keep your head up high

Won’t drown in the river I’ll swim out to you
I’ll stand and deliver
I’ll carry through
If you lose all the meaning of
Life, love and truth
I’ll stand and deliver
I’ll show up for you
I’ll stand, stand and deliver (x2)

I stand
I stand
Stand and deliver
