The Pretenders – I’ll Stand by You

on 11/25/2014

Part of the reason that I think people enjoy music so much, is that it can often remind us of something that we are lacking in our own lives. There may not be much (or any)  solace in real life, but at least there is a song (or more likely, hundreds of songs) to let you know that you are not as alone as you perceive yourself to be. Music reminds us that, no matter how we feel right now, the human condition is much the same around the world, despite our varying languages and cultures. Other people in the world have experienced what we are experiencing, and have survived to sing songs about it. We can take comfort knowing that we are not alone, that others have been where we have been, felt what we have felt, cried heartbroken tears, and then went on to create something beautiful despite it.  Ultimately, music reminds us that this, too, shall pass - whatever "it" is.

To anyone who needs a little reminder that they are not alone...

Music will always Stand by You, not like all of the Pretenders

The Pretenders: I'll Stand By You

Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
'cause I've seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

I'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
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
'cause even if you're wrong

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in, into 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

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
