Missy Higgins – Where I Stood lyrics

I don't know what I've done
Or if I like what I've begun
But something told me to run
And honey you know me it's all or none

There were sounds in my head
A little voice is whispering
That I should go and this should end
Oh and I found my self listening

'Cause I don't know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should

And I don't know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should


'Cause she will love you more then I could
She who dares to stand where I stood


See I thought love was black and white
That it was wrong or it was right

But you ain't leaving without a fight
And I think I am just as torn inside

'Cause I don't know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don't know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should

'Cause she will love you more then I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

And I won't be far from where you are if ever you should call
You meant more to me then any one I've ever loved at all
But you taught me how to trust myself
And so I say to you, this is what I have to do.

'Cause I don't know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don't know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
'Cause she will love you more then I could
She who dares to stand where I stood
She who dares to stand where I stood.

    I think it means they've been together a while, that she depended on him a lot, they've helped each other to grow as people, but they started to grow apart. She now feels she has to go out on her own, either to pursue a career or explore new feelings, but either way find her place. He doesn't want her to go, she is saying she has to (because she cannot fully commit to him now) but telling him not to worry cuz he'll find someone else and that she'll have to be ok with that if he does.

    Why can't this just be about a woman who loves a man, but realizes that she allowed herself to be consumed by the love and knows that she needs to become her own person. Even though she knows that she doesn't want him to love someone else, it is what is best for both of them. I am not saying it is not about adoption or betrayal, it just seems more about the love of another man or woman rather than a child.

    I think that this song is about a mother who is thinking about giving her child up for adoption, I could be way off here but the lyrics make sense to me that way. It's a higher sort of love she feels for her child, but cannot take care of the child for whatever reason, and someone must stand where she stood. But she's around if the child should ever call. I dunno. What do you think?

    I think you're all wrong. I think she loved him, but despite that the relationship just didn't work out. She left because since it wasn't 'right', that meant it had to be 'wrong'. And he put up a fight and begged her to stay, but she said you'll find someone who loves you more than I could, even though she can't stand him with anyone else (though she should). Isn't it obvious?

    I also think she needs to be independent and find out who she really is as her world revolves around him and she has lost herself in the process. She loves him but needs to find herself and knows he needs to move on and not wait to see what she finds. She needs to accept that he will find another so she can go find out who she is.
