Maria Daines: MUSIC

WILL YOU BE THERE?

(Maria Daines/Paul Killington)
January 1, 2004

One of the first songs we recorded.



'Will You Be There?'


Where you goin' now the night is cool,
Is somethin' on your mind we cannot share,
Or did I break some golden rule,
Will you be there?
Sometimes I know I hurt you bad,
But life goes rollin' on n' on,
I didn't count those things we had,
Will you be there?

Cos there's a pain inside that won't let go,
A bad luck tale you'll never know,
I hold it back an' I hold it in,
Will you be there?

If right is right and wrong is wrong,
Well just who takes the middle ground,
I've been behind you all along,
Now will you be there?

Cos I'd hang the stars and give the sun,
Oh just to watch you say my name,
Always you're the only one,
Now will you be there?

Cos there's a pain inside an' it won't let go,
A bad luck tale you'll never know,
I hold it back n' I hold it in,
Will you be there?
Oh just to watch you safe and sound,
Somehow you're on higher ground,
Out of reach without a care,
Will you be there?

It's easier just to say the words,
They fall like raindrops in the air,
Some get lost and some are heard,
Will you be there?
