Where I Stood Lyrics - Missy Higgins

Review The Song (65)



I dont 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
Little voices whispering
That i should go and this should end
Oh and i found my self listening

Cause i dont know who i am, who i am without you
All i know is that i should
And i dont know if i could stand another hand upon you
All i know is that i should
Cause she will love you more than 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
sponsored links
But you ain't leaving without a fight
And i think i am just as torn inside

Cause i dont know who i am, who i am without you
All i know is that i should
And i dont know if i could stand another hand upon you
All i know is that i should
Cause she will love you more than i could
She who dares to stand where i stood

And I wont 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 dont know who i am, who i am without you
All i know is that i should
And i dont know if i could stand another hand upon you
All i know is that i should
Cause she will love you more than i could
She who dares to stand where i stood
She who dares to stand where i stood.

Unhappy love | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/1/11

I believe this song is about a woman loving a man that she could never have. He was too hard to get, but she still loved him. He always stood up to her, and was there for her when nobody else was. He was the one making her whole and complete.

One time she stood in his room. And she who dares to be where she was, and doing more than they ever did.

They sometimes fight, and he apologizes in the end because he secretly wants her too. But the sad part is that he kind of already moved on with another girl.



She who Dares | Reviewer: Sparkle | 9/22/11

I also think this song is about a woman in love with another woman. That is why she has to be 'daring' to stand where she stood, in the light with her lover. That's also why she says she once thought love was black and white: Wrong or right, but now she knows differently...Missy Higgins actually is bisexual and has many songs about former girlfriends, so I think my interpretation is valid.
I am dealing with attraction to my same sex friend right now, too. I feel like this song is the narration of what is going on in my heart.
I don't know what I've done/begun by dating her- and now by leaving her. I just know that until I know who I am and what I want for myself, I can't give her or a man or anyone my heart.
But I know that realizing that I loved her and that she loved me too helped me think for myself, based on what is right to me- not to society. So, that empowerment is what is helping me know that I have to leave her now.
("but you taught me how to trust myself, and so I say to you...this is what I have to do")
I don't know much--all I've ever been told to learn/do/love is what others say I 'should'.



Found 2 possibilities | Reviewer: Dee | 8/25/11

So I've been listenng to this song repeatedly for months now. First I thought it was about a girl who loved the guy she was with but thought it was time to move on cause their relationship is just black and white and she's knows there's more out there. Then when I read the lyrics she states..." I don't know if I can't stand another hand upon me" so I'm thinking that she's madly inlove with him but she's learned that there more then that violence and that's why she also states ," ....she who dares stares where I stood". Whatever the case is, I love this song. All together it's about a girl strong enough to leave though she's inlove but she's knows there's more out there.



Song For A Break Up | Reviewer: Sam | 4/18/11

I listened to this song on repeat for a month when I decided to leave my boyfriend of 3 years. I truly loved him more than anything but knew it was time to move on. Its a great song when you feel terrible about hurting someone but feel confident that you know your life can move forward.



Beautiful | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/7/11

This song is obviously about a girl who has come to terms with moving on from someone she felt very close to. That someone could be the one she loved, thought she loved, or cared a lot about. Saying she heard voices in her head is her realizing she needs to make a change in her relationship. Saying she doesnt know who is she without him, but she should i think means that she should try to live her life without her significant other. Beautiful song



the most beautiful song ever. | Reviewer: ayans | 12/17/10

This song makes me speechless. It is a song can have somany interpretations to so many people. Musicians should make more of this kind of song. Songs that tell about the society, individual lives, and the struggles people face in life.



Review about Where I Stood | Reviewer: lee | 11/26/10

I think this song is about Dissociative identity disorder. There are two parts of her protecting each other. Hence the "i don't know who I am." Missy is my favorite artist. I have seen her in concert many times and she seems "torn." Many of her songs carry the same theme



Love. | Reviewer: Steff | 11/18/10

I think this song is about a woman who is in love with another woman. And the other woman is letting go. And she's not going to let her go because she feels she's nothing without her. And so she's not letting her go without a fight because you don't give up on love. And the thought of her being with someone else kills her inside.



Another possible meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/7/10

This song could also be about a mother letting her son grow up and move on into the world, possibly even marriage, because as you often see, moms have a difficult time letting their 'little boys' go, and 'she who dares to stand where I stood' would be about the woman who's going to take her place caring for her son.



one of the many multiple meanings | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/29/10

i only say this because i couldnt seem to piece together what i am now feeling towards a loved one of mine. i feel as if i no longer have the same feelings towards him. but i know this much, that i love him dearly. i just havent spent much time figuring out who i truly am and i have hurt a lot of people in the process...and my intentions were good, but my actions turned into a mess. and i cant seem to explain the bad feelings i have...but i know i have to try to see who i really am without him. i know its goin to hurt, especially as i see him fighting for me. but, i know he will be loved by someone very special--someone meant for him.
