Hard times lie ahead my friend;
Hard times, there will be many.
But rest assured, I have your hand, my friend;
I will guide you through these dark cities.
I'm shielding your heart with my hands, my dear;
I will protect you with my courage.
Have confidence in my strength, my dear;
I will make sure you find your happiness.
Don't give in to the pain, my sweet;
I won't let it over take you.
Don't apologize for your tears, my sweet;
I will be there to wipe them from your cheek.
I will keep you in my arms, my love;
I will hold you as long as you'll stay.
Just know I keep your heart, my love;
And I'll protect it as long as you'll let me.
