And we're runnin', there's no place to hide

What can you hold to
But all that you were from the start 

[Chorus]
 Stand up to the night  Though it's comin' down on you
You're the only one you have
That you can hold onto
 Stand up to the night  Though you're crying no one hears 
If you feel your soul would light the darkness disappears
 Stand up to the night 

There's a time and a place in your life when you realize 
That the stranger will always be there 
There's a cold in the heart of the world you know
No one cares if the night comes and takes you below 

 Where can you run to
But somewhere inside your heart 
What can you hold to
But all that you were from the start 

[Chorus: x2]
