Lyrics / Paroles

 

When youíre weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
Iíll dry them all
Iím on your side

Woh, when times get rough
And friends just canít be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

(When youíre down and out)
(When youíre on the street)
(When evening falls so hard)
(I will comfort you)
Ooh, Iíll take your part

Oh, and darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

(I will lay me down)
(I will lay me down)
Sail on silver, girl
Sail on by

Your time has come to shine
All your dreams along the way, yeah
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend

Iím sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

(I will ease your mind)
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
(Like a bridge over troubled water)
I will be by your side
I will be by your side
