Somebody Stand By Me

Written by Sheryl Crow and T. Wolf.

I stood at the door
and watched while you drove away
driving my car,
in the rain, in the dark
Well, every dog seems to have her day.

I've been in this, alone so long
and I'm begining to wonder why I stand in one place,
a different name
a different face.
no ones gonna see me cry

I need someone to stand by me
stand by me, just one time.
I hope somebody stands by me
stands by me, just one time
I don't understand,
it's slipping through these hands.
I think by now I know,
where to let go
all I know is here I am baby
won't you stand by me?

I'm not bending tonight
but, I'm twisted and turned
and broken down

But Im starting to know 
the sound of something,
no one, and yet,
everything.

Well if God's here tonight
are you here tonight?

Maybe you could grab me up,
stand me on my feet
give me strength
set me free.

Im not giving in till
I've had enough.

I need someone to stand by me
stand by me, just one time.
I hope somebody stands by me
stands by me, just one time
I don't understand,
it's slipping through these hands.
I think by now I know,
where to let go
all I know is here I am baby
won't you stand by me?

I need someone to stand by me
stand by me, just one time.
I hope somebody stands by me
stands by me, just one time
I don't understand,
it's slipping through these hands.
I think by now I know,
where to let go
all I know is here I am baby
won't you stand by me?

Stand by Me
