Shell Be There - Lyrics by Monkees

by Unknown
When your dreams have died around you,
She'll be there,
When you need a hand to guide you,
She'll be there,
And when you feel rejected,'
Cause life is not what you expected,I know that she'll be there.
If I hadn't lied and cheated,
She'd be here,
If she wasn't so mistreated,
She'd be here,
And if you don't abuse her,I know you'll never, ever lose her,
And she will always be there.I was too late to discover
How much I really did love her
But now her place is with you
And I must face it, it's over, we're through.
She'll be there,
She'll be there.
And if you don't abuse her,I know you'll never, ever lose her,
And she will always be there.
She'll be there,
She'll be there,
She'll be there.
