Stiff Little Fingers

Stiff Little Fingers are a punk rock band from Belfast, Northern Ireland. They formed in 1977, at the height of the Troubles. They started out as a schoolboy band called Highway Star (named after the Deep Purple song), doing rock covers, until they discovered punk. They split up after six years and four albums, although they reformed five years later, in 1987. Despite major personnel changes, they are still touring and recording as of 2011. Jake Burns, their lead singer, is the only member to have been with the band during all its incarnations, but in March 2006, original bass guitarist Ali McMordie rejoined them following the departure of The Jam bass player Bruce Foxton after fifteen years. more »

(Jake Burns)

Time after time
The world is pressing down
On your shoulders
I know how you feel
Like you're the only one
Taking orders
It's hard to come to terms
With what seems so unfair
But somewhere in your life
You've got someone who cares

Chorus:
And I'll speak those honeyed words
Yeah, I'll speak those honeyed words
'cause I know them all

Don't get worn down
It's much too easy to
Be defeated
Stand strong and proud
And let them know
That you won't be beaten
And if you start to waver
Or you start to shake
Just stand up and be counted
Don't begin to break

(Chorus)

So if you think you'll weaken
Resolution overthrown
Remember all we've said
And you are not alone

(Chorus)
