This might sound strange 
Might seem dumb 
Depends on the side 
That you take it in from 
Depends on the time 
Depends on the day 
Depends on the life 
Who can say 

But I just want 
To let you know 
That I will stand 
By you 
Through whatever might come 
Wherever you run 
Will you stand by me 
When the time comes 

Baby do you understand 
Am I making this clear 
Are you tuning me out 
Cause I'm comin' off weird 
Well I don't care 
That's alright 
It's okay 
I don't mind 

But I just want 
To let you know 
That I will stand 
By you 
Through whatever might come 
Wherever you run 
Will you stand by me 
When the time comes 

This ain't the right time 
To say what's on my mind 
I know 
Well I look in your eyes 
And there is no real life 
At all 
Baby hold on 

And some day soon 
You'll come around 
You'll know the way 
That I can be found 
And when your heart feels right 
Seek me out 
We can talk forever babe, 
But, right now 

But I just want 
To let you know 
That I will stand 
By you 
Through whatever might come 
Wherever you run 
Will you stand by me 
When the time comes
