From Where I’m Standing

So, I watched a movie on Netflix a few days ago called “I’m Reed Fish.” It is nothing short of an amazing film. While watching it though, I discovered a little gem tucked inside. A character in the movie named Jill Cavanaugh (played by Schuyler Fisk) performs a song called “From Where I’m Standing” and it is simply amazing. Well, after looking up the lyrics, I came to realize that Schuyler Fisk has actually recorded this song and you can listen to it on her web site (www.schuylerfisk.com). I am currently in the process of learning to play/sing this song. It’s gonna be fun. Here are the lyrics:

“From where I’m standing, you’re the quiet side of the room.
You’re looking so lonely, and I can’t stop looking at you.
Your head is hanging, trying to beat those goodbye blues, and I bet you’ll be fine. And I bet you’ll be fine.

I guess it’s not the way you always planned it.
Looks like you’re heading for a crash landing.
That’s just the way it looks from where I’m standing.. from where I’m standing.

From where I’m standing, I think I caught your eye..
Were you looking at me? Cuz I swear I saw you smile.
And I’m coming over.. gonna take things off your mind.
And I bet you’ll be fine. And I bet you’ll be fine.

I guess it’s not the way you always planned it.
Looks like you’re heading for a crash landing.
That’s just the way it looks from where I’m standing.. from where I’m standing.

Let it fall.. let it come down.. let it crash around you… around you.

I guess it’s not the way you always planned it.
Looks like you’re heading for a crash landing.
That’s just the way it looks from where I’m standing.. from where I’m standing.

And I might make you mine… I might make you mine.. from where I’m standing..”
