Jackie Graham OMG, an amazing song! I can't listen to it enough. You have captured so eloquently what Mathias and his family are about. I love the song, I love them and can't wait to meet you. Need your performing schedule so I can become a groupie.

Mathias Giordano is a 13 year old boy in Leesburg who was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, cancer of the bone, in July of 2012. Over the past 20 months, he has endured biopsies, port placement, 26 rounds of chemo, 3 major lung surgeries, amputation of his right leg, and completed 28 rounds of radiation. Currently, there is no more options for treatment.
Needless to say, Mathias is a strong warrior. His courage and spirit inspire everyone who is lucky enough to meet him. His smile lights up the room and his positive outlook is truly amazing.
Mathias continues to battle the ugly beast of cancer with poise and dignity. Cancer does not define this young man. He is the author of his journey, not cancer.
The mission of Team Mathias is to help support Mathias Giordano and his family during his battle with Osteosarcoma while raising awareness for ALL childhood cancers.

lyrics

TODAY I WOKE INSPIRED
MY HEAD LET ME GO AND MY HEART WAS ON FIRE
AND THIS STRANGER IN MY SKIN
WILL NO LONGER WAIT FOR REAL LIFE TO BEGIN

HEY YOU CAN CRY, YOU CRY NOW
HEY NO IT DON’T MAKE YOU WEAK
HEY IT’S ALRIGHT YOU CAN LEAN ON ME

I WILL STAND HERE FOR A THOUSAND YEARS
FOR A THOUSAND YEARS I’M GONNA LIVE
LIKE A MOUNTAIN I WILL STAND RIGHT HERE
I’VE GOT A THOUSAND YEARS OF LOVE TO GIVE
I’VE GOT A THOUSAND YEARS OF LOVE TO GIVE

TIME BEATS US UP INSIDE
AND ONLY THE LOVE WE LEAVE HERE SURVIVES
AND IT TICK, TICK, TICKS AWAY
BUT THE TIME WE HAVE LEFT IS ENOUGH TIME TO SAY

HEY YOU CAN CRY, YOU CRY NOW
HEY NO IT DON’T MAKE YOU WEAK
HEY BY YOUR SIDE I WILL ALWAYS BE

I WILL STAND HERE FOR A THOUSAND YEARS
FOR A THOUSAND YEARS I’M GONNA LIVE
LIKE A MOUNTAIN I WILL STAND RIGHT HERE
I’VE GOT A THOUSAND YEARS OF LOVE TO GIVE
I’VE GOT A THOUSAND YEARS OF LOVE TO GIVE

OOOH, OOOH, OOOH

HEY YOU CAN CRY, YOU CRY NOW
HEY NO IT DON’T MAKE YOU WEAK
HEY IT’S ALRIGHT YOU CAN LEAN ON ME

I WILL STAND HERE FOR A THOUSAND YEARS
FOR A THOUSAND YEARS I’M GONNA LIVE
LIKE A MOUNTAIN I WILL STAND RIGHT HERE
I’VE GOT A THOUSAND YEARS OF LOVE TO GIVE
I’VE GOT A THOUSAND YEARS OF LOVE TO GIVE
