Everybody needs a friend now and then
To come and pick their heart up again when everything gets shattered
Everybody needs someone to understand
Someone just to come and hold their hand to be there through disaster
And I'm gonna be there for you

So when you're crying I wanna be the shoulder you lean on
When you're lonely I'm never gonna leave you, so just hold on
When you're crying I wanna be the shoulder you lean on

You say you don't need anyone
But I know when you come undone that you might change your story
I don't know if you're listening
But when you feel like giving in, I'm gonna hold you in these arms
'Cause all I am is a word away

So when you're crying I wanna be the shoulder you lean on
When you're lonely I'm never gonna leave you, so just hold on
When you're crying I wanna be the shoulder you lean on, oh yes I do

If you're on top of the world and you fall down
You're shaking inside and you can't find your ground
When you lose yourself, God will find you, yeah
You need to know that the door is open
When you're broken, come on, step on through, step on through

Oh, when you're crying I wanna be the shoulder you lean on
When you're lonely I'm never gonna leave you, so just hold on
When you're crying I wanna be the shoulder you lean on, oh, yes, I do
So just hold on, I said, just hold on
