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
No, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darling, darling,
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 mountains should crumble in the sea
I won't be afraid
I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darling, darling,
Stand by me,
Oh, stand by me
Oh, stand,
Stand by me
Stand by me

    General CommentI don't think they ever did.

    I have their complete studio recordings and it's not in there, Pitty, It probobly would have been really kickass if they did.
