Song Description

I have several friends who fought in Viet Nam, the Gulf war, Iraq and Kuwait. Some are currently still stationed and Afghanistan. After listening to their experiences it has become very clear how they rely on the love of family and friends to get them through some of the most tedious and horrific moments. Many of them are in places they never dreamed they would see, doing a tough job simply because they have been ordered to be there. There isn't a day that goes by without thinking of their loved ones who are living in a safer place and hoping they will see them again soon. It is the strength of this love that keeps them going. Even in the most dangerous situations, they count on this enduring love to see another day.

Story Behind the Song

I began co-writing this song in 2006 with my long time music friend Jim Fischer.  We had been asked to submit a song for an independent film about love that "hangs in there"....   I had a very strong feeling about this song and even though it wasn't chosen, I knew there was some reason for it to be written.   A year ago, my friend Talbot, who had been key in finishing and producing this song said to me he really felt we could produce a heartfelt patriotic video to present it's message. We created a video and dedicated it to the men and women of the armed services. It resides on my website www.lainiristo.com. The response from active and veteran service people has been heartfelt.

Lyrics

I'll Be Here For You (D > Eb)
Words & Music
Laini Risto, Jim Fischer, Talbot Snow

Verse 1:
There's no question in my mind,
I will walk through sands of time with you.
If the story has an end,
I'll turn the page,
Write new words
Fall in love again.

Chorus:
I'll be here for you,
When the night is through.
I will be the light that guides you through the dark.
If you lose your way,
I will call your name.
When you get here,
Your heart will know the truth
I'll be here for you.

Verse 2:
If the world tears us apart,
I'll remember who you really are.
I'll treasure everything you know,
Tend your soul,
Let you grow,
Hold you in my heart.


Chorus:
I'll be here for you,
When the night is through.
I will be the light that guides you through the dark.
If you lose your way,
I will call your name.
When you get here,
Your heart will know the truth,
I'll be here for you.

Bridge:
Find the meaning in all that you can.
Risk it all, go where you've never been .
Scale the tallest mountain,
Soar on wings of freedom.
Feel the light of each star,

Chorus:
I'll be here for you,
When the night is through.
I will be the light that guides you through the dark.
If you lose your way,
I will call your name.
When you get here,
Your heart will know the truth,
I'll be here for you.
I'll be here for you,
I'll be here for you............
