Here I Stand [AOL Sessions Under Cover] - Lyrics

"Okay, um, next we're gonna play 'Here I Stand', which, um, a lot of people listen to and think it's kind of like, a typical heartbreak song, but, uh, it's not."
"It's actually written about, um, like, someone who has, or everyone who has a dream that they're super, super passionate about, and the potential f-for living like, your entire life without fulfilling that dream and having no other alternatives, um, possible, and uh, how devastating that can be, if, if your dream doesn't see the light of day."
"So this is 'Here I Stand'."
My hands shake
'Cause today
I know
You're gonna break my heart
And my life without you in it
Is a life that's not worth living
And I'll be strong but I wish I was someone else
Anyone but me
Tonight
Here I stand
All alone
Tonight
And I wish I was strong enough to breathe
Without you
In my life
I wish I was anyone but me
So I'll start
To pretend
I'm okay
But you should know by now that
My life is smoke and mirrors
One thing is crystal clear
That I'm the one
Wishing I was someone else
Anyone but me
Tonight
Here I stand
All alone
Tonight
And I wish I was strong enough to breathe
Without you
In my life
I wish I was anyone but me
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Inside I start to fall apart
Where do we go?
And I'll pretend I'm holding on
Where do we go?
And I guess I'll bleed in silence
In silence
Well, I guess I'll bleed in silence
Here I stand
All alone
Tonight
And I wish I was strong enough to breathe
Without you
In my life
I wish I was anyone but me
All alone
Tonight
And I wish I was strong enough to breathe
Without you
In my life
I wish I was anyone but me.
