Can I carry your burden can I ease your pain
Baby what would you say
Can I hold your head can I sing a sweet refrain
Baby what would you say

Can I catch your tears in the palm of my hand?
Can I stand by your side in this hostile land?
Will you close your eyes will you call out my name
Will you tell me I’m the author, the author of your name?
Baby what would say

And If I am the author what can I do then
Baby what would you say
Can I start at the beginning can I win your heart again
Baby what would you say
Will the road have been to long and your loses much to dear
Will you wake from your slumber?
Will your vision finally clear?
Will my fate be sealed at sunrise?
Can I utter one more plea?
Will you walk me to the gallows and push me to my knees

Baby what would you say (3 times)

Can I carry your burden can I ease your pain
Baby what would you say
Can I fan the smoke and fire back in the blazing flames
Baby what would you say

Can I catch your tears in the palm of my hand?
Can I stand by your side in this hostile land?
Will you close your eyes will you call out my name
Will you tell me I’m the author the author of your name?

Baby what would say (4 times)
