May is "Beautiful" 2/10 "Stand by My Side"

Following the theme of celebrating my CD “Beautiful” this “beautiful” month of May, Track 2 of 10 is “Stand by My Side”.
Here are the lyrics, and as for the backstory, well, it was too emotional to try to write that, then luckily I was saved by the fact that the lyrics themselves say enough for the moment!
Thank you and please enjoy the following linkery device unitations as followeth...

Stand by My Side - LYRICS

I've been pushed down
like the others before me
I've crawled around
Searching for shreds of dignity

I was the clown
You never took my act seriously
I ran around
You never knew what to make of me

Stand by my side
Don't let me go
I love to run and hide
But just so you know
That's just my style
Stand by my side

Ooo-oo-wah...

I made you wait
You waited forever...
My eyes a gate
You stand on the outside looking in

You listened well
For that, I'll love you forever
You could never tell
I'm more like you than you'll ever know

Stand by my side
Don't let me go
I love to run and hide
But just so you know
That's just my style
Stand by my side
