"Will You Be There" PDF Print E-mail
(single by Michael Jackson from album "Dangerous"; released in July, 1993)

Hold me
Like the river Jordan,
And I will then say to thee -
You are my friend.

Carry me
Like you are my brother,
Love me like a mother,
Will you be there?

Weary…
Tell me, will you hold me?
When wrong, will you scold me?
When lost, will you find me?

But they told me
A man should be faithful,
And walk when not able,
And fight till the end,
But I’m only human.

Everyone’s taking control of me,
Seems that the world’s
Got a role for me;
I’m so confused,
Will you show to me
You’ll be there for me
And care enough to bear me?

(Lead me),
(Lay your head lowly),
(Softly, then boldly),
(Carry me there).

(Hold me),
(Love me and feed me),
(Kiss me and free me),
(I will feel blessed).

(Carry),
(Carry me boldly),
(Lift me up slowly),
(Carry me there).

(Save me),
(Heal me and bathe me),
(Softly you say to me) -
(I will be there).

(Lift me),
(Lift me up slowly),
(Carry me boldly),
(Show me you care).

(Hold me),
(Lay your head lowly),
I feel lonely sometimes!
(Softly, then boldly),
I feel lonely, yeah, yeah!
(Carry me there).

(Need me),
(Love me and feed me),
(Kiss me and free me),
(I will feel blessed).

(Spoken):

In our darkest hour,
In my deepest despair,
Will you still care?
Will you be there?
In my trials
And my tribulations,
Through our doubts
And frustrations.
In my violence,
In my turbulence,
Through my fear
And my confessions.
In my anguish and my pain,
Through my joy and my sorrow,
In the promise of another tomorrow.
I’ll never let you part,
For you’re always in my heart.
