Hive Open Mic #127 - I'll stand by you (The Pretenders)

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


Being there for others when they are in need of help is a form of humbleness, being able to show empathy, to offer a hand and advice if needed. Most of the time all it takes is listening, a skill that many have lost in our busy world where a lot of people are mostly concerned with moving on in life.

The song I'll stand by you by The Pretenders is simply a beautiful song, first released in 1994. It has a powerful message sung with an equally powerful voice as expected by Chrissie Hynde.

This is a fairly new addition to my repertoire and I still have to work out the little instrumental bit.

I humbly hope, that I do it justice. Thanks for listening!

Lyrics

Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
'cause I've seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

So if you're mad, get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I'm a lot like you
When you're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
'cause even if you're wrong

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

And when...
When the night falls on you, baby
You're feeling all alone
You won't be on your own

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

Another fantastic song for you Anke. A great choice for this week. That tricky little key change was nicely executed. I thought the instrumental bit was good actually. No need to do anything else with it.

I'm totally impressed by this beautiful presentation, but I did enjoy the guitar lines more because it seems like you are feeling a bit tired and it did kind of affected your voice but over all the song is beautiful.

Yes I heard it and I could understand how hard it must have been for you. I really hope everything gets better Anna.

I do not think I'm much of a good singer as you put it, I'm only learning to sing and I just love singing, that's all.

I loved your performance, it was really beautiful like I said before, you are really creative musician and I can see you have so many types of guitar, that's really nice.
