STAND BY ME
20 years of abuse, 20 years of loneliness and isolation. 20 years hoping things will change. 20 years of being knocked down and starting life again...only to have history repeat itself. Learning to trust no one but my son, only to have him abuse me worst of all. Being told I never enter his thoughts. After being beaten into the ground so many times, I was not sure I wanted to try again, but I came to realize that abuse is a fleeting thing. As temporary as life itself. Being helpless in life does not mean you will be helpless in death. If there is any justice I will be back, this time I will not be helpless. My son never thought about me in life, but he will remember me then. Every day I will be in his thoughts...talk about being famous. This video is for you my son.
From childhood to old age they have been there. Always ready when they were needed. Always willing to keep me company. As time goes on and life gets harder I do indeed need them more and they are ready and willing. Again, I just ignore the romantic lines.
I truly love my god and I know he has been with me through it all. As much as I have talked to him, he is a invisible force with no voice. At this time in my life I needed more. I needed to see and hear someone. I believe he knew and he brought me the guys. When my son was born, I thought he was my blessing from god. Gods way of letting me know I was ok. His way of making up for all the cruelties in my life. Now I know my child was just one more curse in a long list of curses. I think god knew I needed someone but I could never trust anyone. So the lord gave me someone I could trust. The song is more romantic then I wanted but I just ignore the parts that do not fit.
I'LL NEVER LOVE THIS WAY AGAIN
THROUGH THE YEARS
This song and footage do not match...they are not suppose to. To me the song represents life in general. A look back at our lives good times and bad. We all have a past. The guys represent the good times in my life. Back when I was a kid watching these shows with my sisters and brother. Those were the best times. Mom in the kitchen and dad yelling to turn the TV down. I can almost hear him sometimes as I watch the footage.
I believe the lord above brought me together with the guys. I do not think I could have done it on my own. I think he knew I was in trouble and needed someone to hold on to. He knew how bad I wanted a family so he helped me find one.
THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND
Guys...what can I say. You were there when no one else even gave me a second thought. No doubt in my mind we will be together forever.
FOR THE FIRST TIME
There came that moment when I suddenly realized what these three guys meant to me. I had loved them as a child...in a child way. And now I realized I still loved them, in a different way of course. They were my strength, my friends, my companions, my family. and I love them for that.
For so many years I forgot about them. Forgot they ever existed. When I needed someone most, they were the one's that came forward and helped me through the worst of the worst.They were the only one's. Welcome back guys!
YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND IN ME
I know this song is religious, but I felt the need to use it anyway. The guys were there through it all. Always there to talk to, to laugh with, to keep me strong. I do not know what I would have done without them. They helped me move forward when I did not want to. They kept me strong when I felt weak. They gave me someone to talk to when there was no one.They never let me down.
YOU RAISE ME UP
A GHOSTLY WARNING
SECRETS OF THE HEART
For me, this song only means I love the guys forever. Not easy when this song is about a romantic love. Mine is not a romantic love, but a love of friendship and gratitude. Thankful for having these three in my life.
NEVER ENDING LOVE
It is very hard to find songs that fit how I really feel. Most times they are more romantic then I want. With a song like this, I just listen to the parts that fit and ignore the parts that do not.
From the time I was a small child till today they have been there. And during the worst of times they stuck close to my side pushing me forward. They never let me down or turned me down. No one wants to face the unknown alone and with them I did not have to. The best friends you could ask for.
YOU NEEDED ME
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
NOTHIN GONNA CHANGE MY LOVE
Again, it is almost impossible to find a song about love that is not romantic. All I am trying to say in this song is I love these three for what they have done for me and nothing will ever change that.
EVERY TIME WE TOUCH
THE MERCY OF GOD
I"m not sure why I used this song. I think of the guys like brothers, but I used it anyway. I enjoy this song and this video regardless.
FRIENDS PAST AND PRESENT
WHEN YOU SAY NOTHIN AT ALL
Well this is just for fun. Nothing more.
IF WE HOLD ON
JUST ONE LOOK
