I'm Always Right Here

If ever you're feeling afraid or alone,
whatever the reason may be,
I want you to call me, just pick up the phone.
Just a call, …… and I will come.

Whatever the season, we'll face it as one.
Together, we'll climb any mountain that looms.
We will shove back the clouds that have shadowed the sun,
till' the storm is gone.

Together we can search for tomorrow.
Together we will borrow the stars.
We can brighten the world with the light from our love.
If you'll reach out and call me, and I'll be there.       

However we measure the things that go wrong,
we're stronger together, if we become one.
Love will light up the way,
in the darkest of night,
until the sun and moon turn their lights back on.


Whenever dawn arrives without sunshine
or if the skies are heavy with rain
I'm just a stone's throw away, you can call out my name.
And I'll wrap you in love till the tears are gone. 

If ever you're feeling alone in the dark,
if ever you're mending a frail, broken heart
I am always right here, and with help from above.
we can always find love, in the darkness

              I'll be there, beside you, to turn all the lights back on
