lyrics

Sister it’s alright to cry. Sister it’s alright to cry when it hurts, or else it just hurts worse. Sister it’s alright to cry. Sister it’s alright to show what’s inside, or else it’s just a lie. Come to me sister, alright to cry. Brother it’s alright to fight. Brother it’s alright to stand up for yourself. If not you, who else? Brother it’s alright to fight. Brother it’s alright to struggle with the pain, push against the grain. Stand up my brother, alright to fight. So many challenges, one after another down the line. That’s just fine. Life is a puzzle box, each piece a new mystery to be solved down the line. Stand up together, endure. We’ll be fine. Stand up together, we are born to endure. Yes we are. Mother it’s alright to cry. Mother it’s alright to touch your deepest love for another. Mother it’s alright to fight. Mother it’s alright to battle for your son. Raise another one into the world, alright to love. Stand up together…
