Lyrics

Intro- ad lib lead over chorus groove

Verse- You…stood by my side…
Through all the times I’ve tried
All the nights I’ve cried
Verse- You…stood by my side…
You always bet I could
Always said I would...baby,

Chorus - You’re the only one
The only one whoever believed in me
You’re the only one
You’re the only one
The only one who ever put trust in me
You’re the only one

Verse- You…stood by my side…
When I was filled with doubt
Felt so down and out

Verse- And You…stood by my side…
When I just couldn’t win
But now my ship’s come in
Repeat chorus

Bridge- You…were always there
To see me through my despair…my despair
(Oh, Oh, Oh) And girl, I love you so
For the way that you share
All my worries and cares

Musical interlude from double verse groove

Verse- You…stood by my side…
When I just couldn’t win
You made my ship come in…baby

Repeat Chorus 2X (resolves)
