Favorite songs in Poems – “I’ll Stand By You” by The Pretenders

On YouTube


Many people search for loyal friends and lovers. But loyalty should be mutual. Since it is a rarity to find loyally’s people, I always listen to this song, imagining people like that.

However, they are real. In my current life, I have only three people like that. I am sure there are many other loyal people out there. Those who go through fire for me, as I do it for them. I believe I will meet more humans like that.

The song I choose today is like a bittersweet mirage of this digital life and fears around the world. Maybe bravery and courage will save humanity. I search for lights of hope.

“I’ll stand by you”

Oh, why you look so sad?

Things are not always bad.

Tears are in your eyes

After them, new highs can arise.

Come on and come to me now

I will listen to you, not tell you how.

Don’t be ashamed to cry

At least you did try.

Let me see you through

I can feel your pain, bruh.

’cause I’ve seen the dark side too

You will not be misunderstood.

When the night falls on you

It is like the burden of the day flew.

You don’t know what to do

But you should act, through.

Nothing you confess

Even if it is your dirty dress.

Could make me love you less

I will stay by your side without a press.

I’ll stand by you

We will start anew

Won’t let nobody hurt you

I am now your trusted crew.

So if you’re mad, get mad

That will not make me sad.

Don’t hold it all inside

I  love the moon’s dark side.

Come on and talk to me now

Or I come to you and find out.

Hey, what you got to hide?

It is alright whatever you decided.

I get angry too

I am not a random boo.

Well I’m a lot like you

There are a few.

When you’re standing at the crossroads

You can decide to go with monologues.

And don’t know which path to choose

Your solution is not making you lose.

Let me come along

I can build you up to be strong.

’cause even if you’re wrong

I will keep holding you on.

Won’t let nobody hurt you

I will never make a sue.

Take me in, into your darkest hour

When you feel weak, I give you my power.

And I’ll never desert you

There are many things we went through.

And when…


When the night falls on you, baby

I stood proud by your side as your lady.

You’re feeling all alone

Do not try to begone.

You won’t be on your own

My arms are your home.
