stand up lyrics – javier colon

(feat. adam levine)

when i was a young boy growing up in school
there was a lot of confusion so many guides and rules
faced with a dilemma and being told what to do
that’s when i learned to stand for something, does it come as a surprise
that i fell, fell for you, for once i could tell what i should do

lock this baby down, make it real here’s the papers sign the deal
find a home buy a car get a dog and there we are
so i’m gonna stand up and man up, no stuttering and i won’t stall
i’m gonna stand up and man up, the one time its cool to fall
in love, i’m falling in love
and please don’t pick me up

we decided to get married, a little bit too soon
people told us we were crazy, cuz we were still in school
too young too fall in love, but we followed through
and it wasn’t all for nothing
so they shouldn’t be surprised
that i fell, fell for you and for twice i could tell what i should do

lock this baby up, make it real here’s the papers sign the deal
find a home buy a car buy a dog and there we are
so i’m gonna stand up and man up, throw my doubts up against the wall
i’m gonna stand up and man up, the one time its cool to fall
in love, ohh i’m in love
but please don’t pick me up

you’d never leave me on the side of the road
or down on the floor like your clothes
driveway with the water hose anywhere the water flows that’s perfect how it goes
just like a penny on the street or dying when you see something sweet.
the most beautiful picture on the wall …that’s you

cuz when i fell, i fell for you
and for the thrice time i could tell what i needed to do

lock this baby down make it real where’s the papers sign the deal
find a home buy a car buy a dog and there we are
so i’m gone stand up and man up, i promise not to drop the ball
i’m gonna stand up and man up, the one time its cool to fall
so i’m gonna stand up and man up, who cares how it looks to ya’ll
i’m gonna stand up and man up, the one time its cool to fall
in love, ooh in love
hey but please don’t pick me up.
