I've Got Your Back

What fool abandoned you?

That's not what real men do.

They don't run away, they stand up, and they stay, and they still care.

You've had to be so strong, 

To face this world alone.

You've done all that you can, it’s taken everything you had, and that's not fair.

 

Everyone needs someone in their corner

Someone you know you can rely

When You’re alone, I’m still right here behind you

When it's you against the world, I'm by your side

No matter where you go, you will always know

I've got your back

 

Even when there's miles and miles between us 

When the darkest part of night is still to come.

There's still a light that's shining, and a real trust

To hold you close, protect you though the dawn.

 

Everyone needs someone in their corner

Someone you know you can rely

When You’re alone, I’m still right here behind you

When it's you against the world, I'm by your side

No matter where you go, you will always know

I've got your back

 

REPEAT CHORUS AND OUT

I met a lady around Christmas 2014.  She told me about her ex, who could never quite get it together.  At one point, she said, "Just once in my life, I'd like my partner to look me in the eye and say, "I've got your back."  Her statement haunted me for months.

Happy to say she's now in such a relationship.

I wanted that snare drum roll from the very beginning, but we didn't put it in until the end.  Thanks to Caleb Barnett for coming back in to do just that one thing!  Also, I can't tell you how happy I am with the gorgeous soprano voice of Cristi Campbell Ferguson.
