Story

Inspired by a good friend and her special bond with her beloved dog, this song drew on the way they could communicate with each other and how much my friend cared for her dog.

Lyrics

(c)2015 John Ellis

When you look to me, and I know you're in need

I'll pull myself together, leave everything else behind

When there's somewhere you need to be, just point the way

I'll find the strength to get you there

I know you're looking for me to come through for you

And even when I'm at my worst

I'll be there for you

I know all of your ways, your gestures and twitches

I can tell when you're anxious, and your mood switches

We've been together so long, I know all that you fear

I know all that you need for me to be, and I am here

When living gets to be too much, time for relief

I know you're looking for me to come through for you

And as low as I may feel when you feel bad, I'll have the resolve

I'll be there for you

(instrumental break)

The light of our memories, shines on the life we've made

But in the shadow of time, these images fade

In the truth of where we are, our substance is revealed

And I hope you know that with you, my aching heart has healed

I know you're looking for me to come through for you

I'll find the strength when it becomes too hard for you

When it is darkest, my love shines brightest for you

I'll be there for you
