Many too many have stood where I stand
Many more will stand here too
I think what I find strange is the way you built me up
Then knocked me down again

The part was fun but now it's over
Why can't I just leave the stage?
Maybe that's because you securely locked me up
Then threw away the key

Oh mama
Please would you find the key
Oh pretty mama
Please won't you let me go free
I thought I was lucky
I thought that I'd got it made
How could I be so blind?

You said good-bye on a corner
That I thought led to the straight
You set me on a firmly laid and simple course
Then removed the road

Oh mama
Please help me find my way
Oh pretty mama
Please lead me through the next day
I thought I was lucky
Oh I thought that I'd got it made
How could I be so blind? Oh no

    My InterpretationTo me this is a song about someone who has fallen in love with someone who probably just was having a casual fling.

    It seems supported by the lyrics.
    Sounds like the "many too many have stood where I stand" is written about a guy who fell for a "heartbreaker" who has already moved on to someone else (hence "many more will stand here too").

    Also seems like the protagonist had his ego propt up by his false notion that this person was going to stick with them (hence the "built me up then knocked me down again).

    The lesson hopefully learned here is to not put stock in someone too soon, no matter how great they seem.
