Stand By You

(Even if we can’t find heaven, heaven, heaven, heaven)
Hands put your empty hands in mine,
And scars show me all the scars you hide,
And hey, if your wings are broken,
Please take mine ’til yours can open too,
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you.
Oh, tears make kaleidoscopes in your eyes,
And hurt, I know you’re hurting but so am I,
And love, if your wings are broken,
Borrow mine so yours can open too.
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you.
Even if we’re breaking down,
We can find a way to break through,
Even if we can’t find heaven,
I’ll walk through hell with you.
Love, you’re not alone,
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you,
Even if we can’t find heaven,
I’m gonna stand by you,
Even if we can’t find heaven,
I’ll walk through hell with you.
Love, you’re not alone,
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you.
Yeah, you’re all I never knew I needed,
And the heart, sometimes it’s unclear why it’s beating,
And love, if your wings are broken,
We can brave through those emotions too,
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you.
And oh, truth I guess truth is what you believe in,
And faith, I think faith is having a reason,
And I know, know love, if your wings are broken,
Borrow mine so yours can open too,
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you.
Even if we’re breaking down,
We can find a way to break through,
Even if we can’t find heaven,
I’ll walk through hell with you.
Love, you’re not alone,
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you,
Even if we can’t find heaven,
I’m gonna stand by you,
Even if we can’t find heaven,
I’ll walk through hell with you,
Love, you’re not alone,
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you.
I’ll be your eyes ’til yours can shine,
And I’ll be your arms, I’ll be your steady satellite,
And when you can’t rise,
Well, I’ll crawl with you on hands and knees ’cause I,
I’m gonna stand by you.
Even if we’re breaking down (Hey),
We can find a way to break through (Come on),
Even if we can’t find heaven,
I’ll walk through hell with you,
Love, you’re not alone,
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you.
Even if we can’t find heaven (Hey),
I’m gonna stand by you,
Even if we can’t find heaven,
I’ll walk through hell with you,
Love you’re not alone,
‘Cause I’m gonna stand by you,
Love you’re not alone.
Oh, I’m gonna stand by you,
Even if we can’t find heaven, (heaven, heaven, heaven),
I’m gonna stand by you.
