I’ll Stand By You

When the sun is broiling
The deluge so intense
I will be the umbrella
Above your head,
I’ll imbibe the fierce heat
Let the hail bash on me
So you remain intact

I’ll stand by you

In your darkest days
When friends are few
I’ll be the only few
To stand by you
Hold you by the hand
And lead the way
Even if it leads to hell
I don’t give a damn
Needn’t you fret, baby

I’ll stand by you

I’ll be the mirror reflecting
Smiles when you’re sad
A painkiller to convalesce
Your wounded heart
When all you ever had is gone
I’ll be all you never had
To watch your back
And scratch it when it itches
To the very end

I will stand by you!
