"Will You Be There (In the Morning)" is a song first recorded by American rock band Heart. It was released as the first single from the band's eleventh studio album Desire Walks On (although "Black on Black II" was released to radio first) and was the only Top 40 single from the album.

"Will You Be There (In the Morning)" was written by veteran songwriter and producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, who was responsible for writing Heart's U.S. number-two single "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You" in 1990. The song was not as successful as Heart's previous collaboration with Lange, as "Will You Be There" peaked at number thirty-nine on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.[1] It is the last song by Heart to enter the U.S. Top 40 singles chart to date. Together with "You're The Voice" it is Heart's only song to perform better in the UK than the U.S., rising to number nineteen in the UK Singles Chart. Unlike the strong majority of Heart songs, which feature Ann Wilson on lead vocals, the lead singer on the song is Nancy Wilson, who is usually the rhythm guitarist for the band.

"Will You Be There" was a sizeable Adult Contemporary (#15) and Mainstream Rock Tracks (#10) success.

The song was covered by the country band BlackHawk in 1997 on their Love & Gravity album.
