I'll be there by The Escape Club

Over mountains
Over trees
Over oceans
Over seas
Across the desert
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 for tonight
To be with you
Because I'm on your side
And I still care
I may have died
But I've gone no where
Just think of me
And I'll be there

On the edge of a waking dream
Over rivers, over streams
Through rain and wind
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
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

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
Just think of me
And I'll be there

When you think of me
I'll be there


He'd picked my fallen soul from the deep, dark abyss, showed me how beautiful life is when I thought life isn't worth living, cheered me up when I was down. I've never known anyone with a golden heart like his.

He's the only one I know who didn't think I'm mad when I said I wanna go to Timbaktu one day, the only one who's willing to hop onto the Tran-Siberia Railway with me.

Even after we've parted and went to different parts of the world, me to Down Under, he to Bloomington (IN), USA, we kept in touch daily. He was always there, 24 hours, rain, shine, hail or snow.

Both of us share a love for food. The pic was taken at the Tiong Bahru hawker centre in 2000. That was the last time I'd seen him in person.

Always treasure those around you, especially those close to you, because you never know what's gonna happen. Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart. The deep footprints that he left, will be in my heart forever.

Ming, wherever you are, I hope you'd found peace. Really miss you heaps. My life wouldn't be the same without you.
