Stand Back - Stevie Nicks

Stand Back

Nicks has often told the story of how she wrote the song. She wrote it shortly after she was married to Kim Anderson. The newlyweds were driving up to San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara when Prince's song "Little Red Corvette" came on the radio. Nicks started humming along to the melody, especially inspired by the lush synthesizers of the song, and "Stand Back" was born. They stopped and got a tape recorder and she recorded the demo in the honeymoon suite that night. Later, when Nicks went into the studio to record the song, she called Prince and told him the story of how she wrote the song to his melody. He came to the studio that night and played synthesizers on it, although his contribution is uncredited on the album. Then, she says, "he just got up and left as if the whole thing happened in a dream."[1] Prince is occasionally listed as the song's co-writer, especially on mainland European releases.

Stand Back - Stevie Nicks

Written by Stevie Nicks.


No one looked as I walked by
Just an invitation would have been just fine
Said no to him again and again
First he took my heart then he ran

No one knows how I feel
What I say unless you read between my lines
One man walked away from me
First he took my hand take me home

Stand back stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's alright it's alright
To be standing in a line
Standing in a line
I would cry

Do not turn away my friend
Like a willow I can bend
No man calls my name
No man came

So I walked on down away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than you could do
One man did not call
He asked me for my love
And that was all

Stand back stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's alright it's alright
To be standing in a line
Standing in a line
Standing in a line

So I walked on down the line
Away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than I could do
One man did not call
Well he asked me for my love
That was all

Give me a little bit a sympathy
Give me a little bit a sympathy where is a little bit a sympathy
Well i've been standing here (Stand Back)
Well i've been standing here ( Stand Back)
Wont you just take me home
Wont you taaakkkeee me home
I need a little bit a sympathy
Well,Well,Well I'll be waiting here
Stand Back!!
