Poverty Music Oh why you look so sad The tears are in your eyes Come on and come to me now Don’t be ashamed to cry Let me see you through Cause I’ve seen the dark side too When the night falls on you You don't know what to do Nothing you confess Could make me love you less I’ll stand by you I’ll stand by you Won’t let nobody hurt you I’ll stand by you So if you're mad get mad Don’t hold it all inside Come on and talk to me now Hey, what you got to hide I get angry too Well I’m a lot like you When you're standing at the crossroads And don't know which path to choose Let me come along Cause even if you're wrong I’ll stand by you I’ll stand by you Won’t let nobody hurt you I’ll stand by you Take me in into you darkest hour And I’ll never desert you I’ll stand by you And when, when the night falls on you, baby You feeling all alone You won't be on your own I’ll stand by you
