When you're weary
Feeling small
When tears are in
Your eyes
I will dry them oh
I'm on your side
Oh when times get rough
And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge
Over troubled water
I will lay me down
Sail on silver girl
Sail on by

Your time has come
To shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine

If you need a friends school look around I'm sailing
Right behind
Like a bridge
Over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Like a bridge
Over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Your mind
Ease your mind!

    General CommentClay should have won. He's a much better singer than Ruben and he has a lot of talent. If anyone saw his renditions of "Unchained Melody" and "I Could Not Ask For More" and "Mack the Knife", they would know what I was talking about.

    General CommentThink about it, if you're going around spreading hate about something then in all fairness shouldn't you be the one who needs to go out and get a life? I mean if you had a life you'd have something better to do then spreading hate now wouldn't you?

    General CommentI love Clay Aiken. This song is done amazingly well by him. He has, hands down, the best voice I've heard from a male vocalist in my life. I personally don't believe the controversy about his sexuality, but I don't care. Clay has touched his fans' lives in many ways and if people looked past the rumors and gave him a chance, I'm sure you'd see it just as myself and fellow Claymates have so clearly.
