Stand By Me by True Colors Festival

Stand By Me by True Colors Festival

True Colors Festival invites 46 artists from 15 countries/areas to the virtual stage to perform an updated rendition of “Stand By Me”, the classic Ben E. King hit. This video, filmed collaboratively but remotely in each artist’s home, is a message of #hope, #positivity and #inclusivity from the artists to the global community of people with disabilities.

Lyrics:
When the night has come
and the land is dark
and the moon is the only light we see
No, I won’t be afraid
No, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
So darling, darling, stand by me
Oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now (Stand by me)
Stand by me (Stand by me)

If the sky that we look upon
should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
No I won’t (No I won’t) shed a tear (shed a tear)
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
And darling, darling, stand by me
Oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now (stand by me)
As you stand (stand by me) stand by me (stand by
me)

Yo
Oh, stand by me
Stand by me
By me
Stand by me
Let’s go
Yo

I know sometimes we feel like we’re alone
Facing the demons that live in our home
(our home)
I know when the sun don’t rise
I know when the moon don’t shine
(moon don’t shine)
Shivering cold as ice
You feel like you’re losing your mind

But don’t back down I’mma stand by you
till we see the light
Look to the right, to the left
Look the front, to the back
Everybody right here
Shoulder to shoulder, we lifting the weight
Now we blazing the fire
Let it rain, let it come
I’mma stand by you (I’mma stand by you)

Stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me, stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

Stand by me in the darkest night
Stand by me so I see the light
Stand by me when I need you most
Stand by me so I cannot boast

Stand by me when I wanna give up
Stand by me so I know I’m enough
Stand by me when I feel alone
Stand by me so I know I’ll reach home

(I’mma stand by you)

We’ll make it out through these painful times
We’ll pass over every storm and shine
One day this’ll be over and we’ll laugh
We’ve already won as a matter of fact

No matter how long and dark the night
The sun will always rise
We just have to walk towards the end together

Stand by you
Would you stand by me
