Stand By You

Morse

When the weight of your freedom lies across your back
I will be there to stand by you.
When the light explodes so bright it feels like thunder
I will be there to stand by you.
Like a shelter from the pouring rain,
I will cover you while you feel your pain.

I will walk. I will cry. I will stand.
I will stand right next to you.

When the trust that you stand on gets pulled out like a rug
I will be there to pick the pieces back up.
When the dreams that you live for break into the wall
I will be there to pick the pieces back up.
Your tears will splash across my face,
and disappear without a trace.

I will feel. I will hold. I will stand.
I will stand right next to you.

When your fear paints your hope black and battleship grey
I be there to take you home.
When the night has lost control and patience is wearing thin
I will be there to take you home.
Like a fire in a frozen cloud,
I'll melt the ice from your doubts

I will cry. I will feel. I will stand.
I will stand right next to you.

I will walk. I will talk. I will stand.
I will stand right next to you.

I will live. I will live. Take my stand.
I will stand right next to you.
