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.
