Musical Monday: When We Stand Together

I am linking up with My So Called Chaos.

This week's song is a song from my favorite band. This one was hard because I have A LOT of favorite bands. But, I went with Nickelback and the song, "When We Stand Together". I don't know what it is about this song, but I just love it!




When We Stand Together
by: Nickelback

One more depending on a prayer 
And we all look away 

People pretending everywhere 
It's just another day 



There's bullets flying through the air 
And they still carry on 
We watch it happen over there 
And then just turn it off 



(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
We must stand together 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
There's no giving in 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
Hand in hand forever 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
That's when we all win 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
That's, that's, that's when we all win 
That's, that's, that's when we all win 



They tell us everything's alright 
And we just go along 
How can we fall asleep at night? 
When something's clearly wrong 



When we could feed a starving world 
With what we throw away 
But all we serve are empty words 
That always taste the same 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 



We must stand together 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
There's no giving in 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
Hand in hand forever 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
That's when we all win 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
That's, that's, that's when we all win 
That's, that's, that's when we all win 



The right thing to guide us 
Is right here, inside us 
No one can divide us 
When the light is nearly gone 
But just like a heartbeat 
The drumbeat carries on 



And the drumbeat carries on 
(Just like a heartbeat) 



(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
We must stand together 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
There's no giving in 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
Hand in hand forever 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
That's when we all win 
(Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
That's, that's, that's when we all win 
That's, that's, that's when we all win

My version of Musical Monday is based on the 30 Day Song Challenge.

Great song and band...and how appropriate with increased tensions in the mideast and a three-front war....

Happy MM!
