I'll be there for you
Sky Nelson-Isaacs © March 2018

When life has broke its promise
and tears have stained your face
when hopefulness has scattered
and worry takes its place
when your schoolwork is relentless
and your backpack is worn through

I'll be there, I'll be there
I'll be there for you

When I see you from the outside
I see who I want to be
and it’s funny that you’re thinking
the same thing about me
When you need some reassurance
From a gentle point of view

I'll be there, I'll be there
I'll be there for you

If it's a race that you're running
and you think you've got to win
maybe you’ll feel better
If you let me in?

The flowers in the window
are only there because of you
and the path that I am walking
is one you helped me choose
if you forget how far you've traveled
and how much you have to lose

I'll be there, I'll be there
I'll be there for you
I'll be there, I'll be there
I'll be there for you
