When I feel like I might fall
Underneath the pressure of it all
I think of you, and it's alright

When it's dark beyond the door
And shadows trace my fears across the floor
I look at you, and I see the light

All the inspiration that I need
Is when I hear you calling out for me
And I will walk the only road that's true
When I'm walking next to you

When I feel I'm doing this all wrong
And I jumble broken phrases in a song
You know how to speak through me

When I get tangled up in grief
And the remedies I take never offer up relief
I talk to you and I am free

All the inspiration to pull me through
Is in the smallest hand I've ever held on to
And I will walk the only road that's true
When I'm walking next to you

When I feel I can't go on
And it seems a thousand years before the dawn
I reach for you
And you keep me holding on

All the inspiration that I need
Is when I hear you calling out for me
And I will walk the only road that's true
When I'm walking next to you
Walking next to you
