When someone who is very dear
Decides it’s time to disappear
And leave you alone, leave you here.
I will be near. I will be near.
When you feel lost and no one cares
Yet in your head the sirens blare
And you think everyone will stare
I will be there. I will be there.
When the sorrow appears to boast
Of what it is that you hate most
Just when you think that you are toast
I will be close. I will be close.
When all hope is lost to the tide
The light in you will not reside
When the time comes you need a guide
I’ll stand beside. I’ll stand beside.
When darkness comes to roam the halls
And leave his markings on your walls
Before you take that final fall
I will stand tall. I will stand tall.
When your pure heart cannot detect
The dark that’s coming to collect
When you’re convinced you can’t correct
I will protect. I will protect.
When it appears you’ve come undone
It is not time to turn and run
There is still hope as there is sun
As we are one. As we are one.
