Jessie Malakouti - Standing Up For The Lonely (radio edit)
Posted at 7:03 PM, 17 October 2009 -


"Standing Up For The Lonely" is Jessie Malakouti's debut single in the UK. Popjustice described the song as «a defiant modern disco record with a slightly mournful, triumph-over-adversity element» and says that she «is destined for quite big things».

Jessie Malakouti is signed to Hard2Beat Records/Ministry of Sound and has been working with Xenomania on her debut album. A 4-track album sampler/megamix is available to download on her website.


Standing Up For The Lonely lyrics:

Everyone told me to stay away from you
But I couldn't listen, I couldn't shake the way that you move
I saw the warning signs from the start
But I never thought you'd break my heart - my heart

I'm standing up for the lonely
and the lovers that you left behind
and baby every time...
You said you're sorry and call me
Oh, if only you could read my mind
you'd figure in time

My dirty angel you've done it now - it's too late
You put your footprints into the ground - a careful mistake
I lay in your bed cold, craving the sun - Oh no...
And I used to think you were the one- the one

I'm standing up for the lonely
and the lovers that you left behind
and baby every time...
You said you're sorry and call me
Oh, if only you could read my mind
you'd figure in time

Feeling down and so vulnerable
we're calling your bluff
give me a reason why you can't keep your story straight-
And babe I've had enough!
I refuse to get emotional
No, this will take more...
Put fire out with fire- dirty liar gonna even up the score!

I'm standing up for the lonely
and the lovers that you left behind
and baby every time...
You said you're sorry and call me
Oh, if only you could read my mind
you'd figure in time

It's got an interesting middle 8th... not sure I like it better than the previous version, though.

It's been "beefed up" a bit unnecessarily, I think. It hits harder, but the previous version had more emphasis on the bass, which somehow made it sound deeper.
