Bridge Over Troubled Waters, by Simon & Garfunkel

This song is especially meaningful for me, for three reasons:

Firstly, the uplifting lyrics. They speak of true friendship and loyalty regardless of the circumstances.


Secondly, the hauntingly beautiful voice of Art Garfunkel that sends shivers down my spine. 

Thirdly, this was my late mothers' favourite song. I remember that when it came on the radio, she would quickly turn it up and sing along at the top of her voice.


A special song, with special lyrics, evoking special memories. Enjoy!






Lyrics, courtesy lyricsfreak.com:


When you're weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all
I'm on your side
When times get rough

And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down


When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part

When darkness comes
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
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 friend
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
