"Stand back" as written by Prince Rogers Nelson and Stevie Nicks....
No one looked as I walked by
Just an invitation would have been just fine
Said no to him again and again
First, he took my heart, then he ran

No one knows how I feel
What I say unless you read between my lines
One man walked away from me
First, he took my hand, take me home

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's all right, it's all right
To be standing in a line
Standing in a line
I would cry

Do not turn away, my friend
Like a willow I can bend
No man calls my name
No man came

So I walked on down away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than you could do
One man did not call
He asked me for my love
And that was all

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's all right, it's all right
To be standing in a line
Standing in a line
Standing in a line

So I walked on down the line
Away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than I could do
One man did not call
Well, he asked me for my love
That was all

    General CommentStevie is a basically a male name and I would assume Stevie is actually a male in a female body. She married a man with a female name (Kim), a woman in a man's body, and bypassed marrying a different man with a another female name (Lindsey) who is also a woman in a man's body.

    There's more to it, but that's enough to get you thinking about this from the hidden true meaning angle...
