Lyrics
If that apology from you meant anything
I'd accept it now with grace
Well you and I both know its just a ployfor you to save some face
If you had any self respect you'd turn yourself in for your crime
Everytime you tell yourself its alright
Everytime you go to sleep at night
Everytime you tell yourself its alright
It just becomes a bigger lie
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight

In between days full of hypertension
Basking in the memories you hold so dear
Remember the vibrant, defining moments
The king making manoeuvres and the grand ideas
I'm glad to see the world through a different window
Where glory doesn't colour every move I make
No lies, no fiction, no rose pink lens
Just a truthful look at the love I gave to you

Everytime you tell yourself its alright
Everytime you go to sleep at night
Everytime you tell yourself its alright
It just becomes a bigger lie
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight

Evergreen saints pray for natures sinners
Preserving every petal that was so hard won
Fold into her chest in a mother's crutch
Relish in the lure of a distant sun
Now I'm glad to see the world through the winter palette
Where colour wheels stall between the green and blue
No white, no snow melt, no ice bound lakes
Just bird song strung across the cobalt blue, boy

Everytime you tell yourself its alright
Everytime you kiss your kids goodnight
Everytime you tell yourself its alright
It just becomes a bigger lie
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
I hope that you can stand yourself tonight
