Thank you Louise Martin for bringing this to my and many others attention.

Protecting our back yards, nature, and the balance of what we find dear to our hearts was this weeks inspiration for Seven Day Song (Stand Up). If you are a resident of Alfred/Plantagenet, I urge you to make a difference and sign the petition. If you are not a resident…spread the word and make others aware.

Thanks for listening.

LYRICS – STAND UP

You can walk around the broken ground pretending
You can sit there in the shadows all alone
hope and dream and wish for happy endings
Pray that things will fix themselves on their very own

You can read about the world from in your basement
You can watch it all go by on your TV screen
Close your eyes and picture others face it
Try to hide the taste of every little thing you’ve seen.

It just aint enough, No no
You gotta remember
It just aint enough, Oh
It just aint enough, No no
You gotta remember

Stand up and let em hear you call out
Stand up and let em take it all in
Stand up and let em have a good look
As you take your right foot to the ground and stomp again
Stand up and let em hear you call out
Stand up and let em take it all in
And in all the years that pass us by
It is never too late to be what you might have been.

You can think about the ones you take for granted
You can worry bout the things you never done
Waste all your tomorrows missing chances
Caught up in the planning, never in the fun

YOu can wait a little longer just to find out
You can turn away and never live your heart

Focus on the fire, as you walk along that wire
Thinking of the things you never start

Stand up and let em hear you call out
Stand up and let em take it all in
Stand up and let em have a good look
As you take your right foot to the ground and stomp again
Stand up and let em hear you call out
Stand up and let em take it all in
Stand up and go and take a little risk
Raise up your fist and fight for everything
