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
Just like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Just like a bridge 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
See how they shine
Oh, if you ever need a friend
Look around I'm sailing right behind
Just like a bridge over troubled water
I'll be there to lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

This is my same old coat
These are my same old shoes
It was the same old me
With a same old blues
Then you touched my lufe
Just by fallen
And when I look in the mirror
I see a brand new girl
Just cause of you

I got the same old friends
They got the same old shins
I tell the same old jokes
T oh just and I get the same old grins
Now the joke is on you
It happened somehow with you
Everyday of my life
I'm as fresh as morning dew

Just because of you

I go to the same old places
I see the same old faces
I look at the same old sky
See it all with a brand new light
I got brand new b
And I git a brand new smile
Since I found you baby
I got a brand new star
