Standing Lyrics

Artist: VNV Nation
Album: Empires

Eyes betray the soul and bear it's thinking.
Beyond words they say so many things to me.
A stranger here reborn it seems
awaking wonders deep in me.
If nothing's ventured nothing's gained
so I must seize the day.

And fighting time so hard I pray
that this moment lasts forever.
And will the world stay standing still at least for me.
Through my eyes stare into me.
I bear my heart for all to see.
With my face turned to the sun there ever standing still.

It wasn't you it wasn't me it wasn't anyone.
It was a day so long awaited and a chance to be as me.
I let the wind run through my hands
as I turned to walk away.
In distant days I long to sense it all so clear.

And fighting time so hard I pray
that this moment lasts forever.
And will the world stay standing still at least for me.
Through my eyes stare into me.
I bear my heart for all to see.
With my face turned to the sun there ever standing still.
And fighting time so much I ask.
I will this morning last forever.
Though seasons change and things come to pass
remain inside of me.
And fighting time so hard I pray
that this moment lasts forever.
and will the world stay standing still at least for me.

I had no faith before that day in any vow or deed.
Days followed days and years were meaningless.
Despite the wisdom of defeat
I bore my heart for all to see the wonders I'd seen.

Absolutely amazing, and if i might add this is only one version, I personally like to listen to the live versions, they are awesome with the crowd and make sure EVERYONE is feeling the music, and the words :D

"It wasn't you it wasn't me it wasn't anyone."

it's not "Anyone" its "Anything"

hmm.......this one kind of breaks my heart and heals it at the same time.....is that possible?

So while the majority of the text is correct I am wondering what version these people were hearing because I fail to see how they could miss-hear the words. It's not like VNV Nation is none for making it's vocals hard to understand and hear above the music.

Some of the words are incorrect, has the same meaning to the song but changing the words to the original words would be best.

You're right Chris but anyhow - I want this one to be plaid at my funeral. This one and "Niemand kennt den Tod" by Erben der Schöpfung.
