I stand high above the rest
      every once in awhile I fall
I hear people laughing at me as
      they watch me bleed
their laughter brings me down 

As soon as I fall I get back up
rising up into the sky I stand strong and proud
      not letting anything bring be down 
As time goes on I stand stronger and high up in the sky 

Once again I fall 
but this time there’s no laughing or bleeding
      only a friend to help me back up
             and rise higher than before

             Now standing
      I soar into the sky
never falling again staying tall and strong
I’ll stand forever reminding those who fall
that they can get back up and be forever lasting
