I'll Be There by The Escape Club

by Jen

I played this at my father's funeral. Beautiful lyrics.

------------------------------------------
Over Mountains
Over Trees
Over Oceans
Over Seas
I'll be there

In a whisper on the wind
On the smile of a new friend
Just think of me
And I'll be there

Don't be afraid, oh my love
I'll be watching you from above
And I'd give all the world tonight,
To be with you
Because I'm on your side,
And I still care
I may have died,
But I've gone nowhere

Just think of me,
And I'll be there

On the edge of a waking dream
Over Rivers
Over Streams
Through Wind and Rain
I'll be there

Across the wide and open sky
Thousands of miles I'd fly
To be with you
I'll be there

Don't be afraid, oh my love
I'll be watching you from above
And I'd give all the world tonight,
To be with you
Because I'm on your side,
And I still care
I may have died,
But I've gone nowhere

Just think of me,
And I'll be there

In the breath of a wind that sighs
Oh, there's no need to cry

Just think of me,
And I'll be there

The lyrics still bring tears to my eyes.

I'll Be There By Escape Club

My Son Tommy age:18

My Son Tommy age:18

Well I heard this song when I was 15 and ever since I heard it I said that I would want this played at my funeral.

Well on August 4,2005, my one and only son passed away at the age of 18. When it came time to pick songs, I picked one of his favorites and this song. I said that I wanted to use it for my son.

When the funeral came, all the people that attended wanted to know the name of that song and that it was a great song for him. And when I told the story I don't think people knew what to think. This was not meant to played at my son's funeral, it was just a back up song if I ever went. It is a great song.
