Lyrics of Standing Still

English (Original)

Standing Still
Guess we knew this was coming on ‘Cause you’re already gone in my head You can tell me that I’m wrong That you’re staying with me instead When winter’s come along And summer’s dead and gone Is there anything left here to say? I can put my arms around the emptiness I found And find a way to make you stay
But I’m standing still I’m standing still As you leave me now I’m standing still I’m standing still As you’re walking out Yeah, I’m just standing still Now before I felt so strong And pieces of me break so easy What I thought would be the end Is just the feeling that you freed me
Girl, this ain’t giving up It’s knowing where to stop Knowing when a thing is over I know my life is blind See for the first time This ain’t gonna bring us closer
'Cause I’m standing still I’m standing still As you leave me now Yeah, I’m standing still I’m standing still As you’re walking out
I’m standing still And I’m just standing still As you leave me now And I’m just standing still When winter’s come along And summer’s dead and gone Is there anything left here to say? I can put my arms around The emptiness I found And find a way to make you stay
I’m standing still I’m standing still As you leave me now Yeah, I’m standing still I’m standing still As you’re walking out I’m just standing still I’m standing still Yeah, I’m just standing still Just standing still

French

Je reste debout Nous savions que ça devait arriver Car tu es déjà partie de ma tête Tu peux me dire que j'ai tord Que tu vas rester avec moi en fait Le vent a tourné, l'été est mort et enterré Est-ce qu'il reste quelque chose à dire ici ? Je peux tenir le vide que j'ai trouvé dans mes mains Trouver un moyen pour que tu restes Mais je reste debout, je reste debout Alors que tu pars Je reste debout, je reste debout Alors que tu t'en vas Je reste seulement debout Je n'aurais jamais pensé être si fort Pourtant je suis très fragile Ce que je pensais être la fin est le sentiment d'être libéré Tu sais, je n'abandonne pas, je sais où m'arrêter Savoir que tout est terminé Je sais que l'amour est aveugle, je vois pour la première fois Rien ne pourra plus nous rapprocher Car je reste debout, je reste debout Alors que tu pars Je reste debout, je reste debout Alors que tu t'en vas Je reste debout Je reste seulement debout Le vent a tourné, l'été est mort et enterré Est-ce qu'il reste quelque chose à dire ici ? Mais je reste debout, je reste debout Alors que tu pars Je reste debout, je reste debout Alors que tu t'en vas Je reste seulement debout
