I'll Still Be Standing Here


Every shadow on you cast

As all the world is rushing past.

No time to rest your weary heart,

But I’ll be there, I’ll take your part.


You carry burdens great and small,

And when it’s done, when all is all,

I’ll stand beside you, hand in hand.

I’ll be there, I’ll understand.


No greater love could ever be

Than what love flows to you from me.

So hold your place and fix it strong,

You’re not alone, I’m holding on.


When judgment comes, and critics stare,

Do not faint, let them beware.

For you will stand, and in the end

I’ll still be here ~ my love, my friend.
