I’ll be there

Sometimes you cry

But things don’t get better for the tears

At times like these, have no fear

‘Cause I’ll be there

To hold you near

Like the vulture I wait like the eagle to fly

Like the vulture I wait

Like the eagle to fly

High into the skies above I’ll fly

Far above places we’ve seen

To places I’ve dreamed

 

There’s so much I’ve not seen

But wait they will

Every day I live

With my past that’s been

Make up my future that will be

 

I will dine with Kings

I will dance with Queens

I’ll build a castle the sky to touch

With the lord by my side

to be my torch

 

Like the mountains I stand

In my world to plan

So much to do I’ll say again

But time once lost we can’t regain

 

I know one day I’ll leave this place

For a place so high the skies displace

But after me my works on earth remain

And every where you go my hymn you’ll hear

On the lips of the saints as they watch at night

 

Like the vulture I wait

Like the eagle to fly.

Will you be there

Sometimes I feel all alone in a world so cold

Sometimes I’m afraid to face tomorrow

Sometimes the Sun refuses to shine on me

Sometimes the world turns it’s back on me

Sometimes I look for shelter from the storm but I find none

Sometimes friends become fiends

Sometimes pain makes my whole day

Sometimes I feel lost in a world so small

Sometimes I ask myself if God is not but a name

Sometimes I feel roads lead nowhere

Sometimes I search for love but I find none

Sometimes I feel the world is not a place to be

Sometimes I search in vain for a shoulder to lean on

Sometimes feel I just can’t go on

In times like these will you be there for me?
