Stand By Me
When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we see
I won't cry, I won't cry
Girl, I won't be afraid
Just as long, just as long as you stand by me

So darling, darling stand by me
Woe woe, stand by me
Yeah stand, darling won't you stand by me

If the sky that we look upon, yeah
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry
Girl, I won't be afraid
Just as long, just as long as you stand by me

So darling, darling stand by me
Woe woe, stand by me
Yeah stand, darling won't you stand by me

Sometimes I sit down and I wonder
I sit down and I wonder
Do you love me
Do you love me, the way you say you do

I don't need
I don't need your money, honey
I got your love, you got my love
That's all I'm thinkin' of

It might take all night
But I know you're gonna treat me right
Because I never get tired
I never get tired of lovin' you

At the midnight hour
I might bring you some flowers, baby
Because I never get tired
I never get tired of lovin' you

One more thing I wanna say:
When the night has come, yeah
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
I won't cry, I won't cry
Girl, I won't be afraid
Just as long, just as long as you stand by me

So darling, darling stand by me
Woe woe, stand by me
Yeah stand, darling won't you stand by me

Whenever I'm in trouble won't you stand by me
Woe woe, stand by me
Yeah stand, darling won't you stand by me

One more thing. Listen:
Cupid, draw back your bow
And let your arrow flow
Straight to my lover's heart for me
Cupid, please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Nobody but me
Nobody, baby
Draw back your bow
Let your arrow flow
Straight to my lover's heart
