When your tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.
When it's in your spine like you've walked for miles
And the only thing you want is just to be still for a while

Oh way oh way oh oooo
Oh way oh way oh oooo

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
I am right be right beside you

When you're overwhelmed and you've lost your breath
When the space between the things you know is blurry nonetheless.
When you try to speak but you make no sound
And the words you want are out of reach but they've never been so loud

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
I am right be right beside you

I will stay.
Nobody will break you,
Yeah.

Trust in me, trust in me.
Don't pull away
Trust in me, trust in me.
I'm just trying to keep this together, because I could do worse and you could do better

Tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
Nobody will break you

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
Nobody will break you.

    This clearly seems to be a love song. For me, it indicates something deeper. It represents my relationship with god, who I can trust to never leave me and be by my side each day that passes. Beautiful. It is a cry for a deeper relationship. Someone is claiming their love, expressing what it means to him or her as an individual, but there is no indication of reciprocation. Could also be the cry of a best friend.

    I think this song is amazing it means so much it always helps me through ruff days and helps me when I need a good crying session, I think josh ramsay dedicated this to his girlfriend at the time and what a lucky girl she is. He's saying that no matter what happens he'll always be there for her, the best boyfriend in the world told me to look up this song and told me he'd always ne there for me no matter what I did. We broke up and I begged and swore to god I'd never lie to him again he gave me another chance I guess he is the best boyfriend especially since he let me fall asleep on him and didn't even care.

    I keep singing this to my son, I am here for him and I love him and I will protect him from anything. This song kinda shows the protection a mother feels for her child and how I feel for my baby boy. I'm the only one who wanted to keep this baby at the start and I sang this song all through my pregnancy. I will always be right here for him.

    This song reminds me of me and my boyfriend. :/ he's in the army, and it hurts so much not being able to see him or hear from him. And I miss him to death. And like in the video, its like I feel him there and then I open my eyes and. He's not. Same with my dreams. But I know he loves me, and I love him more. And I know he's always there for me, even if he can't say it. God, I miss him: '(but this song makes me feel better.

    When someone goes through a break up, doesn't everything seem absolutely confusing, stressful, and unbearable? It doesn't have to be a break up either! It can be a family member or friends's death, it could be depression! Whatever the situation is, Marianas Trench couldn't express true love better. And not in the romantic sense ever! When a person says "i love you" to you as a friend or family member, is it truly meant? Do we really think what we're saying to people when we say "i love you"? They have become empty words, and this song to me expresses how true love should be: towards everyone! If you truly love someone, you should be there no matter what you want, be there because it's the right thing to do. I'm learning this myself, so please don't think I'm saying this to be better than anyone. But this song is about true love, not romance.
