Mother, please don't worry
Yes, I am happy
Well at least, that is, for me

Father, give me the courage
Life's turned so sudden
I lack the will or energy

But I found someone watching over me
Steering us clear of tragedy
And I found someone watching over me
Steering us clear of tragedy

How can I help?
What do you need?

Brother, I know how you struggle
Just hold tight to your trouble
'Cause our support is getting weak

Father, don't be so stubborn
Just remove the burden
Or push it on, on to me

'Cause I found someone watching over me
Steering us clear of tragedy
And I found someone watching over me
Steering us clear of tragedy

'Cause all, all we are
Is the sum of the parts
From those that will listen to us

'Cause I found someone watching over me
Steering us clear of tragedy

For you, I'm always free
Always free
(Steering us clear of tragedy)
For you, I'll always be
(Steering us clear of tragedy)

'Cause I found someone watching over me
Steering us clear of tragedy

For you, I'm always
Always free
For you, I'll always be

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song!

    I think I kind of hear "Remove the burden or push it all unto me" on the father verse though. I wonder if that "someone" is supposed to be a religious being or what?
