Bridge over Troubled Water

play music pause music
mute music

By Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel (1970)

When you're weary, feelin' 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.
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.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

Sail on children, sail on by
Your time has come to shine, all their dreams are on their way
See how they shine, Oh 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.
I'll ease your mind.
