Honed from personal experience, a generic pop ditty about pride in seeing someone cope - and rise - through adversity.



More doors were closing
with each day you grew
oh but you showed them didn’t you?

Well you proved me right
and you made me so proud
always knew you’d win
through all of your pain
now you sleep at night
your waiting's over
you're alive and free
and a part of me ...

You're dynamite
you're in a different world
and I'll try and I'll try and I'll try
but I'll never stand near you.

Still tryin' to find the words to say
feeling prouder of you every day
saw you falling and I watched you rise
now I'm loving all this energy behind your eyes
no jive, high five
move forward with a sense of pride
all's fair in love and in war tonight
I gotta hand it to you brother you're dynamite!

Now your future's bright
you've made your choices
and you've planned your way
what can I say?
A desire to be has seen you through
and with all my heart I say to you ..

Rpt Chorus.

Don't ever stop and look the other way
don't ever try to do as other people say
don't ever thank another man because
you've done it all yeah, you've done it all.

As time moves on
the fear moves on
and you reach for the sky.

You're dynamite Yeah YEAH!
