=== Stand By Me Lyrics===

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.

[Chorus]
So darlin’, darlin’, stand by me,
Oh, stand by me,
Oh, stand,
Stand by me, stand by me.

[Verse 2]
If the sky that we look upon,
Should tumble and fall,
Or 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.

[Chorus]
And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me,
Oh, stand by me,
Woah, stand now,
Stand by me, stand by me.
