Stand Up Lyrics

From the moment I met you
Everything changed
I knew I had to get you
What ever the pain
I had to take you and make you mine
I would walk through the desert
I would walk down the aisle
I would swim all the oceans
Just to see you...

    This song is so sweet. The girl obviously like the seductive and charming guy too. But,she can't commit and don't want to be hurt again. Never trust men only oneself.

    My love, listen to what i'm saying now..whatever happen and might be...i want you to be firm, learn to love yourself, be the happiest person than before, be kind and honest. We're born survivors. Love, Prayer and Forgiveness.

    i love you, love you, love you and always will. Nothings gonna change that fact. Its sad enough that i can't be the person that you need all along.

    The girls heart was broken many of times but he is trying to fix it because she stole his heart. He is trying to take her heart referring to when the song says "i'm a thief,i'm a thief"

    It is about a guy expressing his feelings for a girl and that he would do anything for her and that he wants to steal her heart.

    My friend told me its about the Holocaust;
    It's called a stand up when they had them line up and shot them one by one, and they told them to put their hands up, etc
    "Oh oh oh-oh oh oh so out your hands up, oh oh oh-oh oh oh cause it's a stand up"

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    He sees that this girl is heart broken from many past failed relationships. She has always seemed to fall into these bad relationships. He makes these promises to her that he will treat her different than all the rest of those "other guys" did. He says that he will treat her right and do her heart some good.

    The story here is that the boy is really in love with the girl. I think there is no 3rd person here. The girl is single but brokenhearted due to her past relatiᆞonship. The boy wants to do everything to get the girl and make her happy and forget her past relationship. 'Nuff said. Haha :)

    I think it is about a girl who is taken, and a guy likes her. He knows he can't have her, but is trying to win her with impossible promises:
    "And I will steal us a car
    And we will drive to the stars
    I will give you the moon
    Its the least I can do if you give me the chance"
    He just wants a chance to show her that he would be better for her.
