When you're weary, feeling 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 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
Oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down oh

Sail on silver-girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
And see how they shine
When 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
