Stand my ground, I won’t give in

It’s all around, getting stronger, coming closer—into my world.
I can feel that it’s time for me to face it; can I take it?
Though this might just be the ending of the life I held so dear,
But I won’t run, there’s no turning back from here—

Stand my ground, I won’t give in,
No more denying, I’ve got to face it,
Won’t close my eyes and hide the truth inside,
If I don’t make it, someone else will

— “Stand My Ground”, Within Temptation

All I know for sure is I’m trying,
I will always stand my ground….
