Stand By Me

Stand By Me

Did I say I love soulful (sometimes sad/mournful) songs? Don’t get me wrong, I will listen to any song as long as it sounds good to me: pop, soul, jazz, etc. While I won’t go out of my way to listen to (heavy) metal (because of its “dark” connotations), I have actually heard one or two by chance whose beats were not bad at all.
I was helping clean out my Uncle’s study when I came across an audio cd containing about 15 number one songs from a decade or two ago including The Temptations “Papa was a rolling stone” and Ben King’s “Stand by me” which got me feeling … ah well, such is life I guess.

Below are the lyrics of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me.”
For all those who currently walk alone not by design or choice:

“Stand By Me”

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand, stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
All the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
No, I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand now, stand by me
Stand by me

So darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand now, stand by me, stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me
Oh stand by me, oh won’t you stand now, stand
Stand by me
