I wrote this song to/for my sister when she was facing some troubling times.

lyrics

You don't walk alone

I can see you've been crying - all night long.
I ain't gonna ask, you don't have to tell me what's going wrong.
I'm just gonna sit down - right here beside you
You may feel like no-one out there cares at all
but this is me saying I do.
And I have been lonely, I've been afraid; too tired to keep walking on forward alone
and too proud to save.

And you know it's ok - if you don't say a word.
Maybe we'll talk about some crazy things folks we know have done
Maybe I'll tell you a joke that I heard.
I won't try to make you - dry up all your tears
You've earned the right to every last salty teardrop -
through all your struggles and your fears.
And I know you've been lonely - I know you've been afraid -
but you know that I'm standing right here beside you, no matter what you might face.

When you come out of the shadows
When you weather the storm
You may have lost a few battles - but you're in good fighting form.
Maybe you tested your courage
Maybe you sank like a stone
but as long as I'm breathing
You don't walk alone

And now another gray morning, a hazy light in the east
We've been up all night, I hope it helped to distract you at least
I guess we just got to talking - about the good times and the bad
About everything that made us who we are, both the happy and the sad

And we all have been lonely - we've all been afraid.
We all have lost sight of everything that we cared for somewhere along the way

When you come out of the shadows
When you weather the storm
You may have lost a few battles - but you're in good fighting form.
Maybe you tested your courage
Maybe you sank like a stone
but as long as I'm breathing
You don't walk alone
