Stand By Your Song

I sang this because I meant it
I felt that way and put it down
I thought it good enough to play
And when they clapped there was no sound

You choose what you do with your time
They watch television
You rewrote every other line
They weren't of a mind to listen

Doesn't matter if they don't get it
Don't fret if it's too long
You chose it
So stand
Stand by your song

The audience
Is just a bunch
Of strangers in a bar
I wouldn't trust
Their judgement so much
You don't know who their heroes are

Doesn't matter if they don't get it
Don't fret if it's too long
You wrote it
So stand
Stand by your song

It doesn't matter if they don't get it
Don't fret if it's too long
You stole it
So stand
Stand by your song
