I'm Still Standing Lyrics

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...

    I think y’all are very delusional. The song is about his former boyfriend (and not girlfriend.......) John Reid. I’m not making anything up (before y’all come for me), watch the movie

    A person going through a break up, the person just continues through their life and looking back on it with a sense of pride of it happening, to strengthen their heart and being.

    This is the story of a young man who is getting over a tough breakup with his girlfriend, He explains how he is "still standing" even though it was a tough breakup.

    A great old song by ELTON JOHN about a Individual person or Elton John himself who OVERCAME HIMSELF [the disease and addiction of drugs along with The Pusher that fueled his hungry Ego] To proudly say to ''IT'', ''I'AM Still Standing'' as a true survivor, still alive to feel free and happy as a kid from the clown ''IT'' wanted me to become, while hiding behind that mask that ''IT'' wears. A reminder to a modern day ''TRUMP TRIUMPS'' over the ''morbid nihilism'' pushed by The Left that wanted to see him like a dead clown with no hope and faith that only back fired on them.
