Dougie MacLean - Not Lie Down lyrics

Speak your mind, she said
But there are words best left alone
Try to be kind, she said
For there's no grace in doing wrong
And when you're standing on your highest hill
And you shout but no one hears

You can fall but you must not lie down
You can fall but you must not lie down
And though you're lost in the deep of the fiddle's sweet sound
You can fall but you must not lie down

Pull in your tired wings
There's no need to know it all
Listen how the silence sings
Now is the time for standing tall
And when you're standing on your highest hill
And you shout but no one hears

You can fall but you must not lie down
You can fall but you must not lie down
And though you're lost in the deep of the fiddle's sweet sound
You can fall but you must not lie down

Dream on, little one
There are flowers in your hair
And see what the time has done
Scattered diamonds everywhere
And when you're standing on your highest hill
And you shout but no one hears

You can fall but you must not lie down
You can fall but you must not lie down
And though you're lost in the deep of the fiddle's sweet sound
You can fall but you must not lie down
