"Still Standing" as written by Lauri Yloenen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Aki Hakala and Eero Heinonen....
I wish you were here tonight with me to see the northern lights
I wish you were here tonight with me
I wish I could have you by my side tonight the sky is burning
I wish I could have you by my side

Cause I've been down
Now I've been crawling
Won't get down no more

[Chorus:]
Can't you stop the lies
Falling from the skies
Down on me
I'm still standing
Can't you roll the dice
I might be surprised
Conscience clear
I'm still standing here

Burns like a thousand stars, though you are light years away
Burns like a thousand stars and more

Cause you're up there
You're always with me
Smiling down on me

[Chorus]

Something sacred, something so beautiful
Something quiet to ease my mind
While the pressure's taking me over and over

Cause I've been down
And I've been crawling
Closed around and always falling
You're up there
You're always with me
Smiling down on me

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

    General CommentI actually read it is exactly like that. This song is about a friend of Lauri (the singer) who has died of drugs... I read that in a comment of this song by himself.

    General Commenti think it's a man singing to a girl he loved who's just died, and they faced terrible peril together or something and now he's left to face all the troubles they once fought together, but he's strengthened even though it's so hard because he imagines her watching over him and staying with him.

    General Commentno one commented on this song yet? well, then... it's mine!!

    right...

    well.. my opinion on this song... it seems to me the singer is talking to someone who was close to him who might have died.... ("You're up there, you're always with me, smiling down on me")... and misses that person...

    how very technical and deep...

    this song is awesome though... definetly one of my faves off the "dead letters" album...

    General CommentCome on? Anybody else wants to comment about this song?
    We already know this song is about a friend of Lauries who died. But what the heck does he mean by "cant you stop the lies coming from the skies"?
    I certainly dont know.

    General Commentmy guess is, "cant you stop the lies coming from the skies" means that since he died from drugs, people r making lies about him and saying stuff and lauri hates hearing it because he loves his friend and he wants the lies to stop

    General CommentI think that the singer in the song is still very confused as to what he believes is going to happen after death, and so he is asking his friend who he would normally turn to for advice, but who is now dead not to forget him and to help him sift through all of the different religious and scientific answers out there to find the truth -- "Can't you stop the lies falling from the skies" -- but I dont understand the part about his conscience being clear.

    General Commentwell...I don't usually trust in magazines or online interviews(only videos where I can see them and stuff saying whatever they're saying)...and today I was listening to the song, and I think it could be another thing:
    He's talking to God, he's telling him something like: hey where are you?? I'm still here standing and u don't stop lies or whatever...and I'm needing you, and I wish u were here with me...
    well..that's only what I feel like hearing the lyrics and dunno...but well, if it's true that thing of his friend...ok, I'm wrong^^ but I see it like that...just like that, I try to look for another meaning and there's no answer in my mind(lol)
    "conscience clear,I'm still standing here"---->hey, let's talk clearly and seriously, I'm still here and I haven't received a sing from You(God)....dunno, I'm religious and I know how a person feels like that in respect to God and if he's helping me or not......thoughts of mine...
    well...nothing more
    rock on!!!!!!!!! LOVE YA RASMUS!!
    (sorry if my english is bad..I'm spanish)
