From the recording Just Like You
the same situation that inspired 'comin' alive' was responsible for the lyrics that accompany this composition. i actually found the chords first (and loved them!) and wrote the lyrics after. i think this might have been one of the first songs i wrote that way. where 'comin' alive' expresses the triumphant side of overcoming disappointment, 'standing' reveals the more naked and vulnerable side of that same coin.
