He left me cryin' late one Sunday night outside of Boulder 
He said he had to find himself out on the road 
I guess when love goes wrong 
You've gotta learn to be strong 

So I worked two jobs 
And I moved three times 
I ended up south of Memphis, workin' down in Riverside 
I may not be so lucky in love 
But the one thing I'm sure of 

I want a man that stands beside me 
Not in front of or behind me 
Give me two arms that want to hold me, not own me 
And I'll give all the love in my heart 
Stand beside me 
Be true, don't tell lies to me 
I'm not lookin' for a fantasy 
I want a man that who stands beside me 

I didn't expect to see him, one hot July morning 
His hair was longer but his eyes were the same old blue 
He said, "I've missed you for so long. Oh baby, what can I do?" 
I said, "I want a man that stands beside me 
Not in front of or behind me 
Give me two arms that want to hold me, not own me 
And I'll give all the love in my heart." 

It's hard to 
Tell him, "No" when I want him so bad 
But I've got to be true to my heart 
This time 

I'm not lookin' for a fantasy 
I want a man who stands beside me 
I want a man 
Who stands beside me 

Stand beside me
Stand beside me
