"You'll Be In My Heart" as written by and Phillip David Charles Collins....
Come stop your crying
It will be alright
Just take my hand
And hold it tight

I will protect you
From all around you
I will be here
Don't you cry

For one so small,
You seem so strong
My arms will hold you,
Keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
Can't be broken
I will be here
Don't you cry

'Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more
You'll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You'll be here in my heart
Always

Why can't they understand the way we feel
They just don't trust what they can't explain
I know we're different, but deep inside us
We're not that different at all

And you'll be in my heart
Yes you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more

Don't listen to them
'Cause what do they know
We need each other, to have, to hold
They'll see in time, I know

When destiny calls you, you must be strong
I may not be with you
But you got to hold on
They'll see in time, I know
We'll show them together

'Cause you'll be in my heart
Believe me you'll be in my heart
I'll be there from this day on
Now and forever more

You'll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You'll be here in my heart
Always

Always I'll be with you
I'll be there for you always
Always and always

Just look over your shoulder
Just look over your shoulder
Just look over your shoulder
I'll be there
Always

    General CommentWhen listening to this song while thinking about gay rights, this can have a drastically different interpretation...

    The lyrics that really drive this are, "Why can't they understand / The way we feel / They just don't trust / What they can't explain / I know we're different but, / Deep inside us / We're not that different at all" and "Don't listen to them / 'Cause what do they know / We need each other / To have, to hold / They'll see in time / I know..."

    I know that's absolutely not the meaning of the song, and rather it's a song made specifically to describe the relationship between a mother gorilla and her human son... But yeah, that's always the feeling I got when listening to this song... ;)

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my dad. Alot of people are always talking about how their dad is never their, or they never meant their dad or there dad is abusive or somthing, but its different for me. Me and my dad are very close. I can talk to him about any thing. He's always been there for me and always will be. When I reached my lowest point of my depression, he was always their for me. I remember him coming up to me and hugging me saying "i love you and ill always be here for you".

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the amazing man I am in love with. I am pregnant with his child and his family does not like me even though they have never met me because we are 18 years apart. They think I am using him. It has made him lose family he says its okay but to me its not. I wnat him to have a relationship with them so im walking away. I dont want to though. In life sometimes you have to do what you dont want to do. But I know that i will always be with him because he has my heart "when destiny calls you you must be strong i may not be with you but youve got to hold on they'll see in time i know we will show them together" just makes me cry harder...and i can only hope they see that so we can all be together. I love you honey with all of my heart ALWAYS i am so in love with you you are amazing and I am going to be missing you while they figure out we are destiny. I just know I always have a part of you (your son or daughter) I love you...just look over your shoulder Ill be there always

    General Commentthis song reminds me of when I was sad my my girlfriend was having a surgery done. And it just meant a whole lot more because it was about being different and looking beyond the outside, and seeing the good insed, the love.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of a lot of things, but 2 in particular. 1, One time a friend and i were in my car going around a corner singing this song and almost wrecked the car, and 2, one of my friends got called in by the army in jan. and had to leave and at his goodbye party we listened to this song and the part "when destiny calls you/you must be strong/i may not be with you/but you've got to hold on" will always remind me of him. he's always been like a big brother to me and i luv him for that. miss ya rick :(

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my boyfriend and I because our relationship isnt' approved by my parents. Sometimes people don't understand how our relationship works or why we stay together. This song is all about staying together no matter what people say. I love you jesse!

    General CommentI was really sad one day, and I was talking to my sister online, because she lives thousands of kilometers away from me, and she started quoting this song at me, and I sobbed.
    This song will always remind me of my sister, and make me feel close to her when we're not together.
    Love ya Cait :)
