    Default To stand above someone

    Could anybody explain the meaning of "Will you stand above me?", which I happened to find in Simple Minds' song "Don't you forget about me"?
    Thanks.

    Default Re: To stand above someone

    In its complete context,

    Don't you forget about me
    Don't, don't, don't, don't
    Don't you forget about me
    Will you stand above me
    Look my way, never love me
    Rain keeps falling
    Rain keeps falling
    Down, down, down
    Will you recognize me
    Call my name or walk on by

    I think he is asking if she will stand aloof, alone, ignoring him and his pleas to her to remember the love they shared, but have lost.
