Johnny Cash – Bridge Over Troubled Water lyrics
When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry
Them all;
I'm on your side. When times get rough
And friends just can't 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 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.
When 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.

Sail on silvergirl,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
If you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.

    I just love this song, but guess what the real meaning is behind it. It's about a friend who's going through a difficult time in his/her life. He/She is dealing with drugs and alcohol. They need help and you are their only true friend to really do anything about it. They love you for who you are. They are also saying that they will risk their life for you. They love you so much they are willing to take that chance with you. They don't care what you look like or how you come to school, they are willing to die for you. They love you and they don't want you to get hurt.
