There For You

  • Sometimes I'm selfish fake
    You're always a true friend
    And I don't deserve you
    'Cause I'm not there for you
    Please forgive me again

    I wanna be there for you
    Someone you can come to
    Runs deeper than my bones
    I wanna be there for you
    I wanna be there for you

    Swirling shades of blue
    Slow dancing in your eyes
    Sun kisses the earth
    And I hush my urge to cry, cry

    I wanna be there for you
    Someone you can come to
    Runs deeper than my bones
    I wanna be there for you
    I wanna be there for you

    Cause I hear the whispered words
    In your masterpiece beautiful
    You speak the unspeakable
    I love you, too

    I wanna be there for you
    Someone you can come to

    I wanna be there for you
    And be someone you can come to
    The love runs deeper than my bones
    And I, I wanna be there for you Writer/s: HOWARD BENSON, SAMEER BHATTACHARYA, JAMES CULPEPPER, JARED HARTMANN, LACEY NICOLE MOSLEY, PAT SEALS

  • Jeps from Balanga, PhilippinesThis song made me listen to Flyleaf. I just love how they do not focus on love songs yet make such powerful ones.
  • Deathtopigs from Your Face, FlI love the meaning of this song - but I am just not digging the chorus on the album version. It's so freaking loud and sounds like crappy country.
  • Caylyn from Scottsdale, AzI cry every time I hear this song because it makes me think of my best friend and I think it is the greatest song in the world
  • Raechel from Fort Pierce, FlWhen I saw Flyleaf perform this song. Lacey introduced it like she sang it to the audience.
  • Beth from Mahomet , IlI like this song, because it describes a friendship that one person is a true friend and the other one isn't, and they just keep trying to live up to it. I think it rly describes a few of my friendships.
