“I Stand” lyrics – Gabriela Guncikova (Czech Republic)

Czech-Slovak Idol runner-up Gabriela Guncikova was internally selected to represent the Czech Republic with the song “I Stand”. It’s an emotional ballad, where Gabriela pays tribute to a person who helps her stand tall — “I am standing here just because of you”.

The song begins with Gabriela singing of her struggles in life — “I’ve worn the path / I’ve hit the wall /I’m the one who rose and fall”. But she hasn’t been doing it alone. Despite all the challenges she’s faced, “But in the end / You’re standing there /You’re the one who always cares”.

This leads to the big chorus, with Gabriela singing the praises of her rock. “I am standing here / Just because of you
Every part of me is a part of you / I stand”.

“I Stand” – Gabriela Guncikova (lyrics)

I’ve worn the path
I’ve hit the wall
I’m the one who rose and fall

I’ve played my heart
When I played the part
But it got me through the rain

I’ve felt the strain
I’ve made mistakes
With the monsters in my head

But in the end
You’re standing there
You’re the one who always cares

‘Cause I stand
I stand
I am standing here
Just because of you
Every part of me is a part of you
I stand

I’m standing tall
I can hold it all
Now I see where I belong

The choice I made
Helped me understand
Now this life is mine to play

I am thanking you, you made me
You are my air
I’ll always care

‘Cause I stand
I stand
I am standing here
Just because of you
Every part of me is a part of you
I stand

You never lose hold of me
You always trust and you see
Here I stand

I stand
I stand
I am standing here
Just because of you
Every part of me is a part of you
I stand

I stand
