"Here I Stand" as written by Mateo Camargo, Matthew J Leone, Nathan D Leone and Daniel David Torelli....
My hands shake 'cause today
I know you're gonna break my heart and
My life without you in it
Is a life that's not worth living
I'll be strong but I wish I was someone else
Anyone but me tonight

Here I stand (here I stand)
All alone (here I stand)
Tonight (here I stand)
And I wish I was strong enough to breathe (here I stand)
Without you (here I stand)
In my life (here I stand)
I wish I was anyone but me

So I'll start to pretend I'm ok
But you should know by now that
My life is smoke and mirrors
The one thing is crystal clear
That I'm the one wishing I was someone else
Anyone but me tonight

Here I stand (here I stand)
All alone (here I stand)
Tonight (here I stand)
And I wish I was strong enough to breathe (here I stand)
Without you (here I stand)
In my life (here I stand)
I wish I was anyone but me

(Where do we go, where do we go)

Inside I start to fall apart (where do we go)
And I'll pretend I'm holding on (where do we go)
I guess I'll bleed in silence (in silence)
I guess I'll bleed in silence

Here I stand (here I stand)
All alone, (here I stand)
Tonight (here I stand)
And I wish I was strong enough to breathe (here I stand)
Without you (here I stand)
In my life (here I stand)
I wish I was anyone but me

All alone (here I stand)
Tonight (here I stand)
And I wish I was strong enough to breathe (here I stand)
Without you, (here I stand)
In my life (here I stand)
I wish I was anyone but me

    General CommentTo be fair. You may think you know the meaning, its not as self explanitory as you think. They done a AOL Sessions, its not a typical break up song. Its about realising your dreams and you want it and not getting it, how devestating it, and for the record, people who say the meaning of this blalala, on any song, whats the point, no one cares. Reason im telling you is cause you seem to be getting it wrong. Reccomend people typing in YouTube, 'Here I Stand Acoustic' its awsome. Roll on September 28th 2007!

    General CommentThis song is a great opener to their debut alblum. Following the armistice, this song creates the main mood the album is going to be about. Great songs and lyrics, very straightforward and easy to sing to.

    Madina Lake is really awesome

    General Commentthis is definitely my new favorite band. Everyone should love them. This song is so good because it just shows how deep the love ran between the two in the song. At least for the guy. Adn now he is alone, pretending his existence still has meaning

    General CommentI love this song :0
    Its pretty self explainatry.. But for the record..
    I think its about a guy whos in love and shes his everything.. and then she leaves him alone and in heartbrake..
    Thats why people say not to make somebody your everything =]
    Obviously.. he did. :0

    General Commentthis song is amazing. although its about a guy who lost he girl who was his everything, this totally relates to my life right now.

    i lost my best friend recently and she literally broke my heart. she was my life and now, i have no one to lean on. its hard to just hold everything in now. so songs explain my life for me.

    and this gets a ten out of ten. :)
