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, is all around
Verse 4
Just like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
(Like a bridge)
Just like a bridge
(Over troubled) over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All of your dreams are on their way

Ooh and if you ever need a friend
(Need a friend)
Look around, I'm sailing right behind
Verse 6

Come on come on
Walk out on me
(Still water run deep)
Oh
