I'll Stand By You



Oh, why you look so sad? The tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
But don't, be ashamed to cry, let me see you through
'Cause I've been in the dark side too
When the night falls on you, and you don't know what to do
Nothing you confess, could make me love you less

1-ll stand by you, I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you, I'll stand by you

So, if you're mad, get mad, don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide? I get angry too
Well, I'm a lot like you
When you're standing
At the crossroads, but don't know, which path to choose
Let me come along, 'cause even if you're wrong
(repeat 1)

2-Take me in to, your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you, I'll stand by you

And when, when the night falls on you, baby
You're feeling all alone, you won't be on your own
(rpt 1, 2, 1...)

Some Bridges

Every day I walk out in this torn-up world
And I fight to survive, I'm laughing
When I make it to the Saturday and I'm alive

1-Carrying your smile with me
Carrying your smile with me, Oh yeah

Everywhere I look I see this world slippin' down
That low road day by day
And I just go on working for the things I need
Making my own way
(repeat 1)

Take a walk on the troubled side of this old town
Take a walk on the broken streets
And the buildings falling down
Look at all these kids with nothing
But trouble in their eyes
Trouble in their futures, trouble in their lives

Some bridges are falling down
Some bridges are still around
Every night I listen to the sound of the street
Lying in my bed
I love to see the dreams that are dancing there
In the lights above your head
And sometimes I get so weary and when hope is caving in
