By Your Side
    (Difford/Tilbrook) 
      When you're down and youíre lonely 
      Come to me I'll be your only 
      Always remember 
      I'll be by your side 

      Call me up daytime or night 
      I'll always listen every time 
      If you need me 
      Then please believe me, don't you cry  

      I'll show concern 
      And I'll keep my word 
      I won't stay away 
      Now and then when your heart's in pain 
      I'd like to say 
      Always remember 
      I'll be forever 
      By your side  

      Friends like this 
      Are hard to find 
      With time to talk 
      And to confide 
      If you need me 
      Please believe me 
      Iím by your side  

      The secrets kept as we lie in bed 
      I can't keep away 
      Now and then when your heart's in pain 
      I'd like to say 
      Always remember 
      I'll be forever 
      By your side
