You've got to learn, you've got to learn how to follow the leader

You've got to turn, turn off your pride and you're life will be sweeter

Love comes from god, surely, surely, surely you can see that

If you check out your heart, there's a part that you're keeping from me

Why don't you hold on tight, make this flight, we've got the whole night

Saddle up your gear, have no fear, we are here, hey

Better make it soon, give me room, come on and stand by me

Come on and stand by, cause there is no time, no time to sit

I'll bet you'll be quick about it, and I know you will,

Once you learn that you can't live without it

Lord only knows how long, how long, how long I have waited

And the moment is near, line em up, get em ready at the gate

We're gonna keep em' strong, moving on, we've got the whole night

No looking back, where it's at, it's right now, hey

Better make it soon, give me room, come on and stand by me

There's gonna be no looking back, so baby, take everything you'll ever need

Sure 'nough moving on, keep it strong, it's a whole new game and a brand new street

You know, uh, you said you would if you could, I'll make it good to ya

Don't you stop 'til we get to the top, hey, ninety-nine and a half just won't do, stand by me

Hey, hey, if it's real, what you feel, come on and stand by

Don't you stop 'til we get to the top, hey, ninety-nine and a half just won't do, stand by me

Come on and stand by, ha, stand by me, hey, hey, hey

(repeat stand by me, hey, hey, hey)
