LyricsEdit

Lauren (with Fifth Harmony):
Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to (me now)

Camila (with Fifth Harmony):
Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
'Cause I've seen the (dark side too)

Dinah with Fifth Harmony:
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

Fifth Harmony:
I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you, I'll stand by you

Normani (with Fifth Harmony):
So if you're mad, get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to (me now)

Camila (with Fifth Harmony):
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I'm a (lot like you)

Ally with Fifth Harmony:
When you're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose

Camila with Fifth Harmony:
Let me come along
'Cause even if you're wrong

Fifth Harmony:
I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
