LW’s Word: (May 05 2007)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving all these wonderful comments on Carrie’s “I’ll Stand By You”.
Every time I watch this video, it brings tears to my eyes. I’m so touched by the joy and laughter they brought to those kids. Most of all, it once again shows just how lucky I am – I have the freedom to chose where to live, what to do and the kind of person I want to be. Yes, we each have our own hardships and/or issues that we are struggling with, but they are really nothing compares to what those people have to face just to survive. They lack the basic physiological needs that we so often take for granted.
While you are enjoying the song and this wonderful MV, remember its intention – You can help.
Let’s try our best to help those in need. Also, be grateful for what we have in our lives.

Full version of the MV with montage of Carrie’s visit to Africa for the Idol Gives Back special can be purchased on iTunes.
All proceeds from the downloads will go to: Save the Children, UNICEF, Malaria No More, The Global Fund and Nothing But Nets
For more information, please read the American Idol Blog News here.

Oh, why you look so sad?
The tears are in your eyes. Come on and come to me now
Don’t be ashamed to cry. Let me see you through
Cause I’ve seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you, you don’t know what to do
Nothing you confess could make me love you less

I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
I won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

So, if you’re mad, get mad
Don’t hold it all inside. Come on and talk to me now
And hey, what you got to hide? I get angry too
But I’m a lot like you
When you’re standing at the crossroads, and don’t know which path to choose
Let me come along, cause even if you’re wrong
I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
I won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
Take me into your darkest hour, and I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you

And when, when the night falls on you baby, you’re feeling all alone
You won’t be on your own
I’ll stand by you, I’ll stand by you
I won’t let nobody hurt you. I’ll stand by you
Take me in into your darkest hour and I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you
Oh, I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you

    I love this song! Of course I did before, but…Carrie’s rendition of “I’ll Stand By You” is absolutely amazing and incredible emotional. Carrie has the ability to turn a simple love ballad into an standing ovation performance. She has an incredible gift, and is phenomenally talented! Go Carrie!

    I love the fact that Carrie was involved in “Idol Gives Back” and the video of her trip in Africa is so inspiring. And, 100% of all proceeds from the downloads of this song, and video on iTunes goes to the charities mentioned above…love that!

    Carrie’s cover of “I’ll Stand By You” is simply amazing! What a wonderful heart she has! The video footage they aired was so touching and it just goes to show how awesome she is!! Truly outstanding vocals to such a great song. I’m glad it was Carrie who covered it! Way to go Carrie!!!
    Definitely worth the donations on iTunes!

    This is so beautiful…………..Carrie is an Angel, but her band also has talent as well……..That fiddle and Ashley Clark does wonders too and her entire band. Carrie has been blessed and I want to say Thank You to Carrie and her band members as well………they all seem to work well together and they all seem to be a part of this Idol gives back together…………..The best part of this song and video is where Carrie nad Ashley Clark are praying with an HIV patient in South Africa…………….It looks to me as if these people look like they are getting medical care and the kids all look well fed to me? Most of the children in this video look well and well fed and clothed?? I know that they are all in need, but just look at the clips, all the kids look healthy? I am sure that they are going through so much more that we do not know about!

    May God Bless each one of you and prayers to all who are in need……………God is GOOD! Reaching out to make this world a better place is what we need to be doing as there is so much sufferring. There are MANY that are needy and it may even be your next door neighbor here in the states, so if you see a need and you can help, do it, you will recieve the richest of blessings from God……….You will never regret reaching out to others…..ever!

    Love You Carrie and your band needs to get credit for all that they do too……..

    God Bless,
    Teresa Fountain

  19. Kenzie said,

    What an unbelievable idol ever..

  22. megan said,

    OMG this is my favorite song.! I can’t believe that she made a song so touching to families around america. I hope it can touch everyones heart as it has touched mine. Tears were just rolling down my face when i first heard this song on american idol. Carrie believes in everyone out there and is such a good person. This song will stay in my heart forever!

  23. Mackenzie said,

    I love this song. This is a true inspirational song for me. She is one of my favorite singers anyways, but this song just goes to show that nobody will be left out in the cold, and someone will always be there for you. Our Celina Middle school is doing a mini relay for life to raise money for cancer treatments. In the 3 years we have been doing this we have raized over 65,000 dollars! that is amazing, and that was just our little school. Imagine what a country could do to those in Africa suffering. We raized over 60 million on the american idol show!! Then you have those who dont whatch it, or dont have a t.v. Add those people in, and we could make a difference. Think before you get into your warm bed at night under the roof of your warm home. THe next time you eat a meal at a nice resturant, or for kids when you cry because you dont get mcdonalds. the next time you look at your parents, and they say they love you. Those kids in Africa dont have any of those things. they dont have nice warm homes, or warm beds to sleep in at night like any of us. They cant go out to a nice reaturant, or cry to their parents because they dont have mcdonalds. Sadly to say, but true, more than half dont even have parents. THey dont have someone to say i love you, or good job when they do something right. When it storms, or something scary happens, they cant run to their parents and hide. THey have to stay strong all by themselves!. Many parents die from AIDS each year. THat is a shame. Our country should step up and do something. I belive we can! We are a strong country , who can do something amazing! So when your down or you feel upset, think of those others in Africa. think of those who dont have anything to live for, but still live their lives each day to the fullest like it was their last. Just think about it, and maybe youll be a good reason that there is a difference made.

    This is the best song that she has ever sang and this is also the best song in the whole entire Country Music Generation. I wish one day I will be a famous COUNTRY singer so I can sing this song and have her like it but I really love this song and I always cry because when I watched the video I saw all this kids that you were visiting and it was so Sad to see kids like that but It is still nice that she went to see them kids.

    Your #1 Fan now and forever.

    I love all your songs but this one is great.
