Right By You Lyrics by John Legend
Will you live like me, in a world run by desire?
Will you wake from worldly dream and not be tired?
Will you work like me to lift the conversation higher?
Will you be cool like water putting out the fire?
How can you be free from all this sorrow?
Will the ones you love today be gone tomorrow?
And if angels don’t have answers to your prayers
Oh, I will be there, oh I will be there
And if who you love don’t want your love, well then…
Do you cut a deal with love and run again?
You see, love contains the meaning of despair
Will you think like me? Will you have your mother’s fire?
Maybe the way we are will not be how you’re wired
Will we do right by you? Will we you have what you require
To make your days on this Earth not so dire?
Can you choose to lead if no one follows?
And if we fell today, must you tomorrow?
Sanctify your answer not your prayer
Oh, I will be there, yeah, I will be there
Yeah, I will be there
And even when it all becomes too much
When you’re growing old and feeling out of touch
Listen to this song and just take care
And know that I will be there, yeah, I will be there
No, I swear that I will, yeah, I promise I will
Little girl, I’m cryin’
