"I'm Still Standing" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
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

Once I never could hope to win
You starting down the road leaving me again
The threats you made were meant to cut me down
And if our love was just a circus you'd be a clown by now

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

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

I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah

    General CommentThis is definetly Elton John's song. He released it after all the hurtful(and untrue) allegations were released by The Sun, and numerous American record companies were cold towards him because of his homosexuality. This was his retaliation towards them.
    Favourite line "And if you need to know while I'm still standing you just fade away"
    He's saying that all the petty people will be forgotten while he will be remembered forever and continue his career.

    General CommentWonderful. Just wonderful. I love the definition that musicmax gave: "He's saying that all the petty people will be forgotten while he will be remembered forever and continue his career."
    We all have a lot to learn from Elton.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about that feeling you get when you are treated badly, then you realise that they don't matter because you can still get by.
    Elton is awesome!!

    General CommentThis song is so uplifting! It reminds me that no one can bring me down and I get to laugh in their face when they see that I'm still standing XD
