Iím Still Standing   (Elton John) - SNOW 21803   (Matthew Mills)

 

 (Opener): CIRCLE to the LEFT:

You could never know what it's like
Your bloods like winter freezes just like ice

ALLEMANDE LEFT your Corner Lady - Do Sa Do your own

 - BOYS STAR by the LEFT - go walking today

You TURN YOUR PARTNER by the RIGHT hand around

 - LEFT ALLEMANDE your Corner Girl - you PROMENADE downtown

I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know why I'm still standingÖ

 

 

 (Figure): HEADS you SQUARE THRU - you count me FOUR hands around

You find your Corner Lady there - you DO SA DO here you know

You MAKE A WAVE - GIRLS TRADE - SWING THRU my friend

BOYS RUN RIGHT - you BEND THE LINE - go FORWARD AND BACK

SLIDE THRU - PASS THRU there - LEFT ALLEMANDE - you PROMENADE

Iím looking like a true survivor - Iím feeling like a little kid

 

 

 (Middle Break & Closer): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE

I'm still standing - after all this time
Iím picking up the pieces of my life - without you on my mind

CIRCLE LEFT - I'm still standing - yeah yeah yeah

ALLEMANDE LEFT and PROMENADE - I'm still standing - yeah yeah yeah

 

 

  (Tag): HEADS FACE GRAND SQUARE:

I'm still standing - yeah yeah yeah

I'm still standing - yeah yeah yeah

 

 

ORIGINAL LYRICS:

 

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
You'll 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, I'm coming back again
I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know while I'm still standing you just fade away

 

I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
I'm 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

 

Don't you know I'm still standing - better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor - feeling like a little kid

 

I'm still standing - after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life - without you on my mind

 

I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah

I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
