"Heart And Shoulder" as written by and Heather Nova....
Want to cry for you
Would it do any good?
If I rained for you
It would just be water

And the night's with you
And the storm's in your hand
And you're down and you're down
And I can't lift you

I'm powerless to change your world
I'm powerless to stop the hurt

But I'll give you my heart
Give you my shoulder
I give you my heart
Give you my shoulder
Over and over

Want to run for you
Would it do any good?
If I flew for you
You would still be standing

And it's hard watching
Cause I'm part of you
And it's hard not to
Not to know what I can do

I'm powerless to change your world
I'm powerless to stop the hurt

I'm trying hard to be your tower of strength
I'm trying hard to bring you back to joy

I'll give you my heart
Give you my shoulder
I give you my heart
Give you my shoulder

When the night just cuts you through
And the dream is lost to you
When you're worried and confused

I will give you my heart give you my shoulder
I give you my heart
Give you my shoulder
Over and over

Time and again
Give you my shoulder
I will
I give you my heart
Give you my shoulder
I will
Time and again
Over and over
I give you my heart
Give you my shoulder

    General CommentThis is a great song - I think it means that as much as you might want to sometimes, you can't save the people you care about all the time - they have to save themselves. You can just be there for them while they do it. You can't get through things for them.

    General CommentThe world would be a much better place if everyone would just shut up and listen to Heather Nova for a few minutes.
