Don't hang your head low 'cause I can't see your face
In your reflection I see your beauty and grace
And when the light shines bright to show you your way do not be weary
Don't turn your head away

So let the critics look upon you with a thousand eyes
And let their tongues do the judging and criticize
And you just sit here before us and reveal your light

Go on
Go on my child

Go on
Go on my child

Your soul is aching and it's dying to be heard
This might be painful but consider the worth
And when you feel like there's nobody on your side
They will embrace you with a radiant smile

So let the critics look upon you with a thousand eyes
And let their tongues do the judging and criticize
And you just sit here before us and reveal your light

Go on
Go on my child

Go on
Go on my child

So you want to give up and you can't find the strength
I believe that you will make it in the end

So you want to stare back and you want to retreat
I believe that there ain't nothing you can't be
Nothing you can't be

Don't feel so naked
I am the blanket of hope
Your words are life rafts and they keep us afloat

And when this long painful journey comes to an end
They will be touched by the message
The message you've sent

So let the critics look upon you with a thousand eyes
And let their tongues do the judging and criticize
And you just sit here before us and reveal your light

Go on
Go on my child

Go on
Go on my child

Go on
Go on my child

Go on
Go on my child

Go on
Go on my child

    General CommentIn a nutshell, I think it's about believing in someone when they don't quite believe in themself. "I believe that there ain't nothing you can't be, nothing you can't be." Knowing that they have something good to offer if they can find the strength to take a chance and put themself out there -and you will be there to support them.

    General CommentI always thought this was about Christ. I'm not religious or anything but it just seems to fit eg. just sitting there revealing his life, being passive even to those who mean him harm, and the bit about his words being liferafts.
    Maybe, I dunno. Just seems to fit.
    Wonderful song at any rate.

    General CommentI think that this song is about giving someone the strength to make it through even when everyone else says they won't. Very beautiful song
