Marlisa Punzalan – Stand By You lyrics

The hurt in your eyes will never disguise the sparkle lived there before
And I know that you're so much more
Than you're showin'
The clouds in your head will bring it in tears but I will catch every drop
Even if it don't ever stop
Cause you're worth it, you're worth it
When you fight for every breath
And the waves are overhand
Let me lay your mind to rest

[Chorus
:]
I will stand by you
When all of your dreams are shattered
And your world is left in tatters
When you're lost we're lost together
I'll
stand by, I will stand by you
If black is your brightest colors
If
hurt is your only lover
When
you fight, we fight together
I'll stand by, I will stand by you
I will stand by you
I will stand by you
I will stand by you
The
war in your head will shoot you down dead
So don't even try to win
Is it worth it all in the end
I don't think so
Try
to embrace the lines on your face
The story of who you are
Cause
I love what I've read so far
I mean it, I mean it
When you fight for every breath
And
the waves are overhand
Let
me lay your mind to rest

[Chorus:]
I will stand by you
When all of your dreams are shattered
And your world is left in tatters
When
you're lost we're lost together
I'll stand by, I will stand by you
If black is your brightest colors
If hurt is your only lover
When
you fight, we fight together
I'll stand by, I will stand by you
I will stand by you
I will stand by you
I will stand by you
When
you fight for every breath
And the waves are over head
Let me lay your mind to rest

[Chorus
:]
I will stand by you
When all of your dreams are shattered
And
your world is left in tatters
When you're lost we're lost together
I'll
stand by, I will stand by you
If black is your brightest colors
If hurt is your only lover
When
you fight, we fight together
I'll stand by, I will stand by you
I
will stand by you
I will stand by you
I will stand by you
I will stand by you
I will stand by you
I will stand by you
I will stand by you

    This song is awesome, this is the meaning of herself. She used to be so shy and scared and now she's happy to be herself but different and she will stand by anyone in the same situation. It's sad at the start and powerful. It gets more powerful each time you hear it and it's an unbelievable first song. She has the best voice and you could listen to it all day.

    Well the song to me seems to be about someone like a friend of family member that's depressed and needs someone to stand by them, but that's just my view. The song is amazing though and Marlisa definitely deserved to win with the results being so close. great job Marlisa and whoever wrote the song.

    I like this song a lot. It's not just some random, shallow pop with a great beat. The melody's great and the lyrics are rich in heavy literature. The song tells the tale of a person who's trying to reassure herself or a friend that she's going to rise above her insecurities and feelings of self-doubt.

    This song shows Marlisa's attitude before and how she was shy and now she is confident and proud to be herself. I am happy she won.
    Mailissa is really proving she can be the best of the best and ta she can be herslf and no one is going to judge her.

    Brilliant song delivered by a very deserving X Factor winner. I think that this can be a love song, but because Marlisa is only 15, she says that she sings it as a song of friendship and dedication. I really do think that she has the life experience, because to young people (I'm 12), even the most small things can seem big before one puts them into perspective, and that is surely enough to sing a song from the heart. lus her voice is too amazing for me to care about that.

    This song speaks for Ronan as a mentor who will stand by marlisa win or loose, and marlisa's feeling that no matter what the results would be she will stand by Ronan as her friend who never gave up on her until the end, someone who believes that she will make it till the end of the competition. Ronan is a great mentor and marlisa is the greatest younger singer ever.

    Amazing song! I think it means that if anyone is sad or depressed she will be with them in their dark times. I personally think it is real heartfelt and a great song. It has a true meaning and has a strong moral and meaning to it. I am sure people can relate to the way the person she was singing to was feeling. Unlike some songs, this song really means something, and can make differences. It is truly wonderful and is easily my favourite song at the moment. No one could sing it as well as Marlisa and I definitely think (and everyone else should too) that she should continue this career and keep on writing amazing songs! I will always be gong for her.

    Love the song good meaning. Marlisa has transformed a lot and she has inspired many people who are the same age as her. She is fabulous and her life has changed from being a shy school girl to a real superstar. She has really made her family proud and it was really amazing for her.

    I love the lyrics. It haunts me. It encourages the person who is totally broken - frustrated due the consequent failures of his efforts for peace whether in the arena of love, loss of life, job, or any emotional mental agony. When someone is depressed he is desperate for a counseling/supporting voice to comfort/solace him. As the lyrics goes, "I will stand by: means "I will stand near by you whatever the dire consequence of life you face." It is sort of offering hopes of ropes to a falling doomed person to have firm faith in friendship with confidence no matter whatever the pathetic scenario he may come across. I congratulate Marlisa for her emotional performance which certainly caused us to shed tears due the effective lines of the lyrics and the emotional voice. A born singer.

    I just love this song! This song is perfect for people who are in pain,are being bullied and those whose parents are busy or they don't care about their children. The meaning of this song is very simple, care and compassion about those who are left behind is the answer. Even if these people are in trouble or unloved, Marlisa stands for them and in return,she gets what money can't buy. Whoever sings this song has a great reason why they sang it. They are basically standing by any their friends, family or anyone who are unloved. I am going to sing this on my audition for my fellow teacher, whose parents abandoned her.Thus, she is now living in her godparent's house and being a great teacher for us. I believe in God who also stands by me and you :D Have a great day everyone!

    This song is about someone who breaks herself and others always hurt her and Marlisa is the friend who's always there.
    Through the highs and lows. This is a great point to sing about. And the pain she goes through each day is horrible.
    But nobody has cared about her until this friend who says "I will Stand By You", never let you down never break your broken heart. This is a song you want to here if your going through some bad times, show you there's always someone you can trust and lean on even if you don't know it yet. But this is my favourite song. I'm going to sing it on solo day to my class so everyone can here this great song, and appreciate it.

    This song reminds me the very honest words promised by a Great woman Josephine Bracken to the only man she loved most, the Great Dr Jose Rizal. And she perfectly fullfilled it. I really admired the composer of this song and deeply honored that this obramaeztra was awarded to a gifted singer like Marlisa. Mabuhay and God Bless.

    This song is so brilliant, Marlissa is so talented! She speaks so many truths about life. The song means not only on thing but multiple things, such as never give up on yourself or other people because they will always be there for you no matter what even when times are tough. Also it means Never ever lose faith.
