Poets Of The Fall - Standstill Lyrics




Time spent like a spendthrift clown
So many chances wasted
So many hopes let down
You didn't see how your pain
Became your refrain
You always thought there was tomorrow
Wish you could get back what you let go

But it's alright if you fall
You just get up, just go on
Never mind the hurt, even if you burn
Cos it's all, gonna be so much better
The moment your true self's shining through
Like the love when I'm finally holding you

First step after the fall
So many more to take till I'm done with 'em all
With my hopes and my dreams, my anxieties
But there is peace in no expectations
Marveling at the hallucination

Yeah, it's alright if you fall
You just get up, just go on
Never mind the hurt, even if you burn
Cos it's all, gonna be so much better
The moment your true self's shining through
Like the love when I'm finally holding you

Through all these dawns
Oh, winter blues
Still wondering why
And what's the use
Oh, the first hello
To the late goodbye
When I'm made new, yeah

Yeah, it's alright if you fall
You just get up, just go on
Never mind the hurt, even if you burn
Cos it's all, gonna be so much better
The moment your true self's shining through
Like the love when I'm finally holding you

It's alright, yeah, if you fall
You just get up, just go on
Never mind the hurt, even if you burn
Cos it's all, gonna be so much better
The moment your true self's shining through
Like the love when I'm finally holding you

Poets Of The Fall Standstill Comments
  1. masamy67

    I love yours songs ! ^^

  2. Luculencia

    These are the most straightforward and least cryptic lyrics from them yet imo. Really love this song.

  3. fafase

    Chorus sounds a bit too much like Anouk - Nobody's wife. Actually the bridge also sounds like Adam Lambert - What do you want from me.

  4. Andy Field

    "Kayleigh" reprise
    (Marrillion)

    Andy Field

    do you remember,
    chalk hearts melting on a playground wall ?

  5. DezertE4gle

    Sounds RHCPish =) but the vocals are much better
    Oh! And that bassline... mmmm!

  6. Alesha Coats

    Aww the beginning gives me a little nostalgic moment for You're Still Here so sweet.

  7. Espresso Beanies

    This song has helped me see thru some serious childhood trauma recently, especially when it comes to struggling with things like internal "self worth". And I like the singer's mantra "Sh*t happens". (thumbs up)

  8. Time Streamer

    I so would love to hear a version of this with a drum track. Lovely.

  9. Piero Minaya Rojas

    The beginning reminds me of Fire

  10. Salvia Black

    angel material.

  11. Lee Whitworth

    I'm sorry, and I love Poets of The Fall to death, but this album is soft as shit. Where did the hard driven sound go from their earlier stuff? Even the previous album had some hard stuff on it.

    Luculencia

    Agree. This is my least favourite album so far. It does have some quite nice songs but in general it's a bit... meh.

    Lee Whitworth

    Yeah, for sure. My favourite song on Ultraviolet is Fool's Paradise. But that's only partly because its the only fast paced song on the album, everything else is too soft/slow or both.

  12. Sleepy Cake Awake

    Thank you Poets for your beautiful songs! Stay so cool!

  13. Md.Faridul Alam

    Magical voice...

  14. Jane A

    The rhythm just so reminds 'Everything fades'.

  15. Andrew Swindells

    Do you remember chalk hearts melting on a playground wall
    Do you remember dawn escapes from moon washed college halls
    Do you remember the cherry blossom in the market square
    Do you remember I thought it was confetti in our hair

    By the way, didn't I break your heart?
    Please excuse me, I never meant to break your heart
    So sorry, I never meant to break your heart
    But you broke mine

  16. No One

    One of the best songs that I have ever heard!❤ the words are just great...

  17. SomnAth Pal

    Anyone here who thinks it sounds more like Under the bridge RHCP?

    gorodjan

    The same guitar settings, similar accords, but POTF :)

    SomnAth Pal

    gorodjan ik, same here, I’ve been listening to POTF since I was 10 years old . But the riff sounds so much like Under the bridge

    gorodjan

    @SomnAth Pal POTF is one of my favourite bands. Listen to RHCP too. You`re right, reminds to Under the bridge, but the song is so beautiful <3

  18. SB Arnab

    I believe, one day each of their songs will reach millions of views... When people will understand what to find in a song... Is it the lyrics and music, or is it only the sexy costumes..

  19. Cornelius Bardley

    Has to be my favourite track from the album, absolutely beautiful.

  20. mireille jimenez

    Love it!

  21. Maxwell M. Siegler

    Just beautiful. Touched my soul to it's deepness...

  22. Rajarshi Halder

  23. José M. Pérez-Rodríguez

    Beautiful song!! <3

  24. BAC Satyam Kavyen

    The intro reminds me of Dua Lipa's "IDGAF", and the constant high beat of RHCP's hits.
    Anyway I love this song too! **

    PCgameplaz

    please dont compare a cock sucker cum dumpster hoe with one of the best rock bands of the last decade. Thanks

    Taseen Kamal

    idgaf who dua lipa is.

  25. Ash B

    Missing the drums

  26. Fahim Monwar

    Does this man have an angelic voice?

  27. Tejas Mathad

    https://youtu.be/ZbcjswxHf0M I've covered this song on my guitar, it's such a good song to play, love poets of the fall!

  28. Chris Heikes

    Everything fades 2.0

    Humble Rationalist

    I wouldn't say so. Imo in everything fades away he sings about someone who is already on the quest of finding his love and gets disappointed.
    In this song its about a person who doesn't even bother searching for his love, because he has to much anxiety to even look for someone. Maybe cause of his selfworth? So he wastes his time...

  29. Matt Julson

    I feel like every lyric in this song is a reference to a previous PoTF song. Am I crazy? "Spendthrift clown" could be referencing More and Carnival of Rust, "Just get up" - Lift, "Never mind" - Clevermind, "even if you burn" - Fire, "gonna be so much better" - Tomorrow is a Better Day, "Shining through" - Change, "my hopes and dreams" - Illusion and Dreams, "my anxieties" - King of Fools, "there is peace" - War, "Hallucination" - Smoke and Mirrors, "Through all these dawns" - Dawn, "finally holding you" - Skin, and of course the obvious "Late goodbye". And it has a very Everything Fades feel and the melody reminds you of Rewind and Roses...

    I'm sure I'm missing a lot of others, like "winter blues", I can't think of what that's referring to off the top of my head but I'm sure it's something. Dreaming Wide Awake maybe?

    SB Arnab

    Lovely explanation...

    csd

    I read like the exact, THE EXACT comment about the latest Linkin Park album just 1 month before Chester Bennington died, damn I guess words and comments are copyrighted material in 2019

    Kassandra Bonilla

    those are very good theories, and knowing PoTF, they love to reference their older work. Look at Children of the Sun with "I'll be singing you songs of tomorrow, then Dawn will follow" referencing both tracks and how they follow each other on the album. I lOVE this stuff. Much respect every time they do it.

    Luculencia

    Winter blues is from "you're still here" I think.

  31. Adam Herrick

    This is so great, such a return to form but it shows everything they've learned and how they've grown. This new album is really a treat.

    qkkeli q

    Reminded me about all the good times with Signs of life. Kind of stopped me for one brief, sweet moment =)

  32. PCgameplaz

    Reminds me "red hot chili peppers" riff :-) wonderful song! what a great album ultraviolet is!

  33. penyuwan

    So Ollie wrote this song? Noice I can feel it.

  34. D1st0rt1On

    How the hell was this uploaded in August tho ? xD

    antti hämäläinen

    Yh my thoughts also :p and there are no comments 2 week old in these comments so everyone found it 1 week ago? :D

    DJango Unchained

    D1st0rt1On it's been private dude. Easy.

    D1st0rt1On

    @DJango Unchained But, I mean, why even upload it in the first place xD ? Also, is this even a channel or what ? Cz if you go to it's videos section nothing comes up :v

    DJango Unchained

    D1st0rt1On it looks like a third party gateway

    Bloomingtide

    Given this is the bands' official YT channel, it is not a big surprise that they have the control over their songs and when to publish them. I think it was put online first as private vid and then later made public to promote their new album.

  35. Marcos Galvão

    Ah! Esse lindo refrão!

  36. Omar Herrera

    He said "Late goodbye"!!!

    Local Machine

    You caught that, eh?

    Ahmet Demirel

    Oh, the first hello
    To the late goodbye
    When I’m made new, yeah

  37. Xach Mustel

    So is this just a toned down remake of Everything Fades?

    Ileana Comsa

    Rewind too

    James Goulding

    You didn’t see how your pain, became your refrain, EVERYTHING FADES AWAY...
