I'm only a stand in after all's said and done
I fought for your love I thought I have won
But I'm only a stand in for somebody else
What a dreamer I've been I'm just standing in
I wondered if you know dear that when you're in my arms
Sometimes the name you whisper isn't mine
I've tried not to believe it but in my heart I know
I've only been a stand in all the time
[ piano ]
I'm only a stand in after all's said and done
I fought for your love I thought I have won
But I'm only a stand in for somebody else
I thought I could win what a dreamer I've been I'm just standing in
