There once was a time I was trembling with all my clothes on
And using all my will
Well look at me now; I'm standing here with all my clothes gone
And I can say at least I'm still standing
But I'm standing still
I'm standing still

And I'm trying but don't know where I should be moving to
So I'm crying 'cause I'm afraid I might be losing who I am

There once was a time I wasn't looking for salvation
Just running forward
And every step was free
Well look at me now on a stead diet of self-deprecation
I've somehow chosen to stand frozen
And don't know what will become of me

And I'm falling just out of reach of she who I should be by now
And I'm calling out her name but she's too far away to figure out
I'm just standing still
Standing still

And I'm frowning but you know I never mean to be unkind
I'm just drowning in the fear of being left behind
'Cause I'm standing still

There was a time when I still wished upon the stars
There was a time when I could smile without trying to
There was a time before I got all of my scars
And before I was afraid I might be losing you

So take my hand and take me with you
'Cause I'm standing still.
