When you're weary, feelin' small

When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all.

I'm on your side, Oh, when times get rough

And friends just can't be found.



Like a bridge over troubled waters

I will lay me down.

Like a bridge over troubled waters

I will lay me down.



When you're down and out, when you're on the street

When evening falls so hard, I will comfort you.

I'll take your part, Oh when darkness comes

And pain is all around



Like a bridge over troubled waters

I will lay me down.

Like a bridge over troubled waters

I will lay me down.



Sail on children, sail on by

Your time has come to shine, all their dreams are on their way

See how they shine, Oh when you need a friend

I'm sailing right behind



Like a bridge over troubled waters

I will ease your mind

Like a bridge over troubled waters,

I will ease your mind.

I'll ease your mind.
