Song Lyric Sunday ~ Stand

Song Lyric Sunday

Thanks again to Jim Adams for his great prompts! I chose stand, as in “I’m Still Standing” by Elton John. Elton wrote the music and Bernie Taupin the lyrics for this 1983 hit.

I find this song personally meaningful to me as I’ve been through a lot of challenges I never thought I could deal with, and yet here I am.

You could never know what it’s like
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
And there’s a cold lonely light that shines from you
You’ll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use
And did you think this fool could never win
Well look at me, I’m coming back again
I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know while I’m still standing you just fade away
Don’t you know I’m still standing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I’m still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind
I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah
I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah

  4. It is thought that Elton John and Bernie Taupin wrote this as a reaction to still being relevant and successful in the early 1980s, post-punk and with the New-Romantics creeping in. Great song Paula thanks for sharing this today.
