Rock Ballad of the Week: The Del Fuegos “Stand By You”

In this life we know

People come and go

Always needed something to ring true

You have always stood by me

Let me be what I must be

Honey, I will stand by you

Stand by you

When your confidence is aching blue and cold

And you could not force a smile to save your soul

In the shadows lingers doubts

As to why some dreams work out

While others wave goodbye before they’re through

You give me never and in hope

And I pray you’ll always know

Throughout the days and everything you do

That honey, I will stand by you

Stand by you

When your confidence is aching blue and cold

You could not force a smile to save your soul

Stand by you

When you’re feeling

Tired grey and old

Honey, I will be too

When the final out arrives

And we look back on our lives

I hope you see the man you wanted to

The man you stood by

Standing by you

Honey, I will stand by you

I will always stand by you
