(Not sure on the chords for this bit, terribly sorry)
Whatever comes
I know how to take it
Learn to be strong
I won't have to fake it
Oh, you're understandin'
Oh, but when you come
And do it best
There ain't nothin'
To stoppin' east to west
(I'm not sure
if this is right)
But I'll still
Be standing
I'll be standing
