Stand With Me

Reposting this because it seems highly appropriate for the way shit’s going right now. A song I wrote a couple of years ago, inspired by this poem here.


 

[verse 1]

Stand with me as the towers fall

As all else tumbles we’ll still stand tall

Watch with me as the whole world crumbles

The life we knew now reduced to rubble

 

[verse 2]

Stand with me when there’s nothing left

Just you and me and the fire in our chests

Gaze on the remnants of the world now gone

Stand with me and wait for dawn

 

[chorus]

Will you stay by me as the world is burning

Standing strong and never running

Tell me that you’ll never leave

That you’ll always stand with me

 

[verse 3]

Stand with me against the masses

As they fight for power among the ashes

Stand with me, I’ll keep you safe baby

‘Cause the two of us, we’re our own brand of crazy

 

[chorus]

Will you stay by me as the world is burning

Standing strong and never running

Tell me that you’ll never leave

That you’ll always stand with me

 

[bridge]

Stand with me with no regret

Stand with me and never forget

Stand with me past our last breath

Stand with me in life and death

 

[chorus]

Will you stay by me as the world is burning

Standing strong and never running

Tell me that you’ll never leave

That you’ll always stand with me

 


You can view & listen to the music I wrote for this here. Maybe sing along if you really want to🤷‍♂️
