So stand close to me
Don't sail away, baby
Let them see your heart
Let 'em see just how beautiful you are

So you head on down
To the bottom near the river
Just to wash away
All the pain of today and yesterday
And you try so hard
To wash away the spots
But your tears
Don't seem to do enough
It's just too much
Well, darling grab a hand
We promise not to let you stand alone

So stand close to me
Don't sail away, baby
Let them see your heart
Let 'em see just how beautiful you are

You're like nobody else, you see
Nothing less than any girl in your magazine
Don't you know you're special?
You're really something special
Baby

So you look into
You look into the water
And there you are
Just the way you left yourself
All alone
But lift your head
And look across the water
'Cause there you'll see
All of us together singing
Darling grab a hand
We promise not to let you stand alone

So stand close to me
Don't sail away, baby
Let them see your heart
Let 'em see just how beautiful you are

You're like nobody else, you see
Nothing less than any girl in your magazine
Don't you know you're special?
You're really something special
Baby

Darling grab a hand
We won't let you go
Darling grab a hand
We promise not to let you stand alone

So stand close to me
Don't sail away, baby
Let them see your heart
Let 'em see just how beautiful you are

You're like nobody else, you see
Nothing less than any girl in your magazine
Don't you know you're special?
You're really something special
Baby, yeah
