about

The naming of this song was quite disappointing to say the least. I should have called it "Raise Your Flag" due to the fact that I only ever said that as apposed to Wave Your Flag ha! But accidents happen, and after the mistake had been made, changing it in my production folders would have been hell, so I just left it!

lyrics

Verse 1:
I was like “Shit” all the time all alone
I’d force myself a little smile
I had to do it on my own no help from the
people that I loved

Hook:
I know you’ll get there
I know you’ll find it
That acceptance
that you’re seeking
I know I’ve been there
But I got through it
Just like you will
You have just got to hold on a little longer

Chorus Right:
Don’t sit and cry
every night
all the time
And don’t ask why
they don’t treat you right
People just fight

Chorus Left:
Boy raise your flag
Girl don’t be sad
You are perfect
just like God intended
and you know that you can
be proud of that
and have no reason
And don’t take anyone’s flak

Verse 2:
I was a geek up in the school
and I didn’t know what to do
I was so lost
I was the freak the fag the Jew
and teachers did not come through
felt so unloved

Hook:
I know you’ll get there
I know you’ll find it
That acceptance
that you’re seeking
I know I’ve been there
But I got through it
Just like you will
You have just got to hold on a little longer

Chorus Right:
Don’t sit and cry
every night
all the time
And don’t ask why
They don’t treat you right
People just fight

Chorus Left:
Boy raise your flag
Girl don’t be sad
You are perfect
just like God intended
and you know that you can
be proud of that
and have no reason
And don’t take anyone’s flak

Bridge:
I know
right now
you think
that there is no way
you will
ever
escape
but hear the words I say

Chorus Right:
Don’t sit and cry
every night
all the time
And don’t ask why
They don’t treat you right
People just fight

Chorus Left:
Boy raise your flag
Girl don’t be sad
You are perfect
just like God intended
and you know that you can
be proud of that
and have no reason
And don’t take anyone’s flak
