Lyrics:
Rick Springfield >
Here I go again, up against the wall
But if I don't give it everything I've got
Baby, it'll come to nothin' at all

I'll give it one more chance
Before I fade to black
I'm fightin' for my life, yeah I'm scared
But you know that I can never look back

You say I can't refuse
I've got nothin' left to lose
But if you're asking me to choose

I'm gonna stand up for love
Baby, once I'm in you know I'll play to win
Stand up for love
Cuz it's all that I can do
I'll stand up for love

When love cuts you down
And it hurts so bad
It can break your faith and your soul
Like livin' in a world gone mad

But when it comes back around
And if your heart breaks down
You gotta hold your ground

And you gotta stand up for love
It's a chance you take - it's never too late to
Stand up for love
It's the best that I can do

You gotta stand up for love
Cuz baby once you're in you gotta play to win
And stand up for love
Baby, I'll be good to you

I think of the times when things were better, babe
Aah, I'm missin' them - missin' them
I never thought that they would end

(solo)

You know I can't refuse
I've got nothin' left to lose
But if you're asking me to choose I'm gonna...

Stand up for love ...
