This song says…
No matter who you are, no matter where you go in your life.
At some point you do need somebody, to stand by you.

No matter how much money you got, or be free you got,
You do need somebody to stand by you.When the night has come, and the land is dark,
And the moon is the only light we ‘ll see.
No, I won’t be afraid.
Oh, I won’t be afraid.
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

If the sky that we look upon should tumble and fall,
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea.
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.So darling darling stand by me,
Oh stand by me,
Stand now, stand by me.

—-In Memory of Roger Ridley
