File:Leona Lewis and Avril Lavigne - I Will Be (FanMade Single Cover) Made by Timmy.png
I Will Be is one of Avril Lavigne's B-sides from her third studio album, The Best Damn Thing. This song may have been recorded fot the Eragon (film), as it was been told that Avril recorded two songs for the film, and because the song from the film "Keep Holding On" is similar in theme and tune. "I Will Be" is a song written by Canadian singer Avril Lavigne, Lukasz Gottwald and Max Martin and was originally recorded by Lavigne in 2007 and is also included on the Limited Edition of her third studio album The Best Damn Thing. British singer Leona Lewis covered the song for her debut album Spirit in 2007 and released it as her third and final single in North America. The lyrics to Lewis' version of the song are slightly altered; in the middle 8, Lewis sings, "without you, I can't breathe", whereas in the original recording Lavigne sings, "without you, I can't sleep".The music video for "I Will Be" began filming on 18 December, 2008 in New York City and was directed by Melina Matsoukas, who also directed the international version of Bleeding Love's music video. Chace Crawford from The CW's Gossip Girl stars in the video with several speaking lines.

In the video, it is presumed Lewis and Crawford's character stole a large amount of money, and are being pursued by the authorities. Lewis tells Crawford she can't stay with him, and will someday meet up with him again. After leaving him she gets herself caught by the police and sacrifices herself so he can escape. She is arrested by an NYPD officer, played by Cedric Darius.

Promotion Lewis previously performed the song on Stripped in Summer 2008.

As part of the singles promotional campaign, Lewis performed the song on the Late Show With David Letterman on 19 December 2008.[3]

[edit] Reception Billboard magazine stated that "I Will Be" was "paved in gold" and that it was "propelled by a killer vocal that Mariah Carey would adore, gargantuan production that scoops up a heap of cumulus clouds and a chorus and bridge that boast indelible pop songwriting."[4]

Lyrics Edit

There's nothing I can say to you
Nothing I could ever do to make you see
What you mean to me
All the pain the tears I cried
Still you never said goodbye and now I know how far you'd go
I know I let you down but its not like that now
This time I'll never let you go

I will be all that you want and get my self together
'Cause you keep me from falling apart
All my life I'll be with you forever
To get you through the day and make every thing OK

I thought that I had every thing I didn't know what life could bring
But now I see honestly
You're the one thing I got right
The only one I let inside
Now I can breathe 'cause you're here with me
And if I let you down I'll turn it all around
Cause I would never let you go

I will be all that you want and get my self together
'Cause you keep me from falling apart
All my life I'll be with you forever
To get you through the day and make every thing OK

'Cause with out you I can't sleep
I'm not gonna ever ever let you leave
You're all I got
You're all I want
Yeah
And with out you I don't know what I'll do
I could never ever live a day with out you
Here with me do you see you're all I need

And I will be all that you want and get my self together
'Cause you keep me from falling apart
All my life (my life) I will be with you forever
To get you through the day and make every thing OK

I will be (I'll be) all that you want and get my self together
'Cause you keep me from falling apart
And all my life you know I will be with you forever
To get you through the day and make every thing OK
