Stay beside me
Here, beside me
Stay beside me
Day after day

When I'm feeling blue
Let me look at you
Oh, my darling
Please won't you stay?

And stay beside me
Help and guide me
Never, ne-ver leave me alone

Trust and love me
Be proud of me
Let me keep your heart
For my own

With your love
You make me strong
Come to me
Where you belong

Stay beside me
Close beside me
You must know
It's you, I adore

You were meant for me
You will always be
My true love
For ev-ermore
