You travelled all around
Always ahead of me
Finding all the words and phrases
You always knew just what to say
When I had not a clue
You always helped me find a way

You travelled through my life
Chasing away my shadows
Someone strong to guide me
You closed the door
As I opened a new gate
You followed close behind me

You, you took the problems
Of all the world
And yet, still had space to carry me
Now I’ll be there
I’m strong, you see
Your burdens you can give to me

You shut it out and turn yourself away
You keep all your fears inside
But you still pile on
That weight of the world
So I’ll be there to carry yours
