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.
I'll be strong but I wish I was someone else,
Anyone but me, tonight.

Here I stand (Here I stand)
All alone, (Here I stand)
Tonight (Here I stand)
I wish I was strong enough to breathe (Here I stand)
Without you, (Here I stand)
In my life, (Here I stand)
I wish I was anyone but me.

So I'll start to pretend I'm ok
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 (Here I stand)
All alone, (Here I stand)
Tonight (Here I stand)
I wish I was strong enough to breathe (Here I stand)
Without you, (Here I stand)
In my life, (Here I stand)
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?)
I guess I'll bleed in silence.(In silence)
I guess I'll bleed in silence.

Here I stand (Here I stand)
All alone, (Here I stand)
Tonight (Here I stand)
I wish I was strong enough to breathe (Here I stand)
Without you, (Here I stand)
In my life, (Here I stand)
I wish I was anyone but me.

(Here I stand)
All alone, (Here I stand)
Tonight (Here I stand)
I wish I was strong enough to breathe (Here I stand)
Without you, (Here I stand)
In my life, (Here I stand)
I wish I was anyone but me

    well, it's obvious what this song means...it's someone who is heartbroken because they're bf/gf broke up with them. and they love them. they'll "die" without them.

    ermmm these arent the right lyrics...
    the song goes:
    My hands shake 'cos today,
    I know you're gonna break my heart and,
    My life without you in it
    Is a life thats not worth living.
    I'll be strong but I wish I was someone else,
    Anyone but me, tonight

    Here I stand (Here I stand)
    All alone, (Here I stand)
    Tonight (Here I stand)
    And I wish I was strong enough to breathe (Here I stand)
    Without you, (Here I stand)
    In my life, (Here I stand)
    And I wish I was anyone but me.

    So I'll start to pretend I'm ok
    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 (Here I stand)
    All alone, (Here I stand)
    Tonight (Here I stand)
    And I wish I was strong enough to breathe (Here I stand)
    Without you, (Here I stand)
    In my life, (Here I stand)
    And 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?)
    I guess I'll bleed in silence.(In silence)
    I guess I'll bleed in silence.

    Here I stand (Here I stand)
    All alone, (Here I stand)
    Tonight (Here I stand)
    And I wish I was strong enough to breathe (Here I stand)
    Without you, (Here I stand)
    In my life, (Here I stand)
    And I wish I was anyone but me.

    (Here I stand)
    All alone, (Here I stand)
    Tonight (Here I stand)
    And I wish I was strong enough to breathe (Here I stand)
    Without you, (Here I stand)
    In my life, (Here I stand)
    And I wish I was anyone but me

    Sounds like someone that just dealt with a breakup with a girl that meant a lot to him and he won't be able to get over her.
