lyrics
You know my heart beats rhythm and my dreams still take me higher,
I've travelled round the world but they can't cure my desire.
The city looks pretty tonight,
Hold on now let's go till morning.

Get up on love and stand by me,
Stand by love, stand by me.

I'm a shell shocked lover, under cover that's my game,
I'm your long lost brother, little sister what's your name?
I feel so alone,
I'm stranded and so far from home I'm calling.

Get up on love and stand by me,
Stand by love, and stand by me,
Stand by love.

Love - stand by love stand by me,
Stand by love stand by me.

Give me one good reason why you don't come play with fire,
'Cos when the earth starts moving you know I'm no liar.
The city looks pretty tonight,
Oh hold on now let's go till morning.

Get up on love and stand by me,
Stand by love, and stand by me,
Stand by love stand by.

Stand by love.
Stand by love stand by me.
Stand by love stand by me.
Stand by love stand by me.
Stand by love stand by me.
Stand by love stand by me.
Stand by love stand by love.
Stand by love stand by love.
Stand by me.
