I'm Still Standing

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Too low for Zero

Am  Dm/A  E/A  F/A  G/A
Am  Dm/A  E/A  F/A  G/A

A                                D/A
You could never know what it's like
         E/A                                  A
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
                     Bm7/A                     D/A              E
And there's a cold lonely light that shines from you
           F#m                                  D                        A 
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 a-way

                        Am7           Am                      Em7   
Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did
                       Dm7                                   Fmaj7   G
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
Am7          Am           Em7
I'm still standing after all this time
                       Dm7                                      E7
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind
            Am           Dm7         E7
I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah!
            Am           Dm7         E7    F/E  G/E
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
