Stand by me – Ben E King 

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
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand, stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain 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, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me

Darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble, won’t you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me
Won’t you stand now?
Oh, stand, stand by me

I know that this song is linked and used in the film stand by me, I personally believe this is a song of friendship and trust held within each of the 4 main characters in the film. I also think with that trust comes the safety of one another how each of them looks out for one another and make sure they are safe even in times of danger, the phrase stand by me makes me think of someone standing by your side no matter what the circumstance is, “I won’t be afraid” shows in the song that the person is telling themselves they will not be afraid of anything if it will help out a friend and then they said it again for encouragement to themselves making them believe they won’t be afraid.
