I'll Stand by You by The Pretenders is featured in The Quarterback, the third episode of Season Five. It is sung by Mercedes, with the New Directions singing back-up.

Will opens the week, a few weeks after Finn's funeral, allowing the New Directions and the alumni to grieve for Finn in song. No one volunteers to sing until Will mentions they can do this tomorrow, to which Mercedes says she cannot, because she's been bawling non-stop. She mentions that Finn told her that he sung the same song to his sonogram that he thought was his baby and she wanted to dedicate this to him. As she sings, Mercedes lets out the pain and hurt within her heart as the New Directions and the alumni look on to her. 

Lyrics

Mercedes:
Oh, why you look so sad?
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
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

Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I'm a lot like you
When you're standing at the crossroads
Don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
'Cause even if you're wrong

Mercedes with New Directions:
I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you
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
Whoa

Mercedes:
And when...
When the night falls on you, baby
You're feeling all alone
You won't be on your own

Mercedes and New Directions (Mercedes):
I'll stand by you, (Oh)

New Directions (Mercedes):
I'll stand by you, (I'll stand by you)
Won't let nobody hurt you (Nobody hurt you)
I'll stand by you

Mercedes and New Directions:
Take me in, into your darkest hour

New Directions (Mercedes):
And I'll never desert you (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I'll stand by you, (Yeah)
I'll stand by you
(Won't let nobody hurt you) Won't let nobody hurt you
(No, no, no, no) I'll stand by you

Mercedes and New Directions (Mercedes):
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you (I'll ever desert you)

New Directions (Mercedes):
I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you (I'll stand by you)
Won't let nobody hurt you (No, no, no)
I'll stand by you (I'll stand by you)

Trivia
