zurückbleiben

1.
to remain behind
(Sounds a tiny bit theatrical.)
Opposite (closest): mitkommen
2.
to stay back
(VERY common, in context of train platforms. That's what the voice says before the train leaves.)

Examples

  • Die Verkäufe des neuen Deos bleiben hinter den Erwartungen zurück.
  • Sales of the new deodorant fail to live up to the expectations.
    The sales [...] remain/stay back behind the expectations.  (lit.)
