Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album too low for zero

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
Youll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use

And did you think this fool could never win
Well look at me, Im coming back again
I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know while Im still standing you just fade away

Don't you know Im still standing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
Im still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

Im still standing yeah yeah yeah
Im still standing yeah yeah yeah

Once I never could hope to win
You starting down the road leaving me again
The threats you made were meant to cut me down
And if our love was just a circus you'd be a clown by now

    I 'claimed' the chorus part of this song as my personal credo after my father had died and i was clearing out my parents' house. Not meaning to imply this is what the song is about, but it's how it made me feel, like i was surviving, depite everything. A brilliant song.

    About being the victor over any circumstance that one faces in their life and being able to claim victory in front of ones peers
