Song

"Stand by Me" is a song originally performed by American singer-songwriter Ben E. King and written by King, Jerry Leiber, and Mike Stoller.

According to King, the title is derived from, and was inspired by, a spiritual written by Sam Cooke and J. W. Alexander called "Stand by Me Father," recorded by the Soul Stirrers with Johnnie Taylor singing lead. The third line of the second verse of the former work derives from Psalm 46:2c/3c.


Stand by Me è una canzone di Ben E. King, scritta da Ben E. King, Jerry Leiber e Mike Stoller per i Drifters, e pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1961 da Ben E. King.

Ha raggiunto la top ten dei singoli più venduti negli Stati Uniti per due volte, nel 1961 e nel 1986, in occasione dell'uscita del film Stand by Me - Ricordo di un'estate ed il primo posto nella classifica britannica (Official Singles Chart per tre settimane) ed irlandese.

Lyrics

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see

No, I won't be afraid (x2)
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darlin', darlin'
Stand by me
Oho, stand by me
Oh, stand,
stand by me (x2)

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountains should crumble to the sea

I won't cry, I won't cry
No, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin', darlin'
Stand by me
Oho, stand by me
Oh, stand now
Stand by me (x2)

And darlin', darlin'
Stand by me
Oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now
Stand by me (x2)

Whenever you're in trouble
Won't you stand by me
Oh, stand by me (x3)

Testo

Quando la notte è arrivata
e la terra è scura
E la luna é l'unica luce che vedremo

no, non avrò paura (x2)
appena tu stai,stai con me

Oh tesoro, tesoro
Stai con me
oho, stai con me
oh, stai,
stai con me (x2)

Se il cielo che stiamo guardando
si rompesse e cadesse
e le montagne rotolassero nel mare

non voglio piangere, non voglio piangere
no, non voglio lasciar cadere una lacrima
appena tu stai,stai con me

oh tesoro, tesoro
Stai con me
oho, stai con me
oh, stai ora
stai con me (x2)

oh tesoro, tesoro
Stai con me
oh,stai con me
oh, stai ora
stai con me (x2)

anche se sei nei problemi
se tu starai con me
oh, stai con me (x3)
