Pentatonix – Standing By lyrics

I counted the stars tonight
Oh how they shine so bright
I gather them all so we perfectly align
While we gaze from far away and separately watch the day
Come rising across the horizon in our minds

But now I know
My heart is strong
Where you belong is by my side
So will you hold
Cause time is cold
But in your soul I'm standing by

I have waited a thousand years
But now that tomorrow's here
I will shout from the mountain top
Our hearts belong near
And we traveled land and sea
Our beacon the love we keep
But when we unite this still all have been a dream

And now we know
Our hearts are strong
Where we belong is side by side
And so we'll hold
Each other closer
And in our souls we're standing by

And so we'll hold
Each other close
And then we'll know we're standing by
