When the world's pressing in on you
and life is hard,
I want to know

If friends are few
and you ache for more from life
I want to know

When your favorite music
no longer puts a spring in your step
I want to know

If you ever feel lost
and just need to talk
I want to know

When your heart is broken
and your soul feels like an apple shriveling in December
I want to know

We'll talk and I'll wisk you away
to Maui or Mazatlan

Three weeks on the beach
and you can tell me everything that troubles you

I'll listen to every word
and hold your hand

You can close your eyes
and let the waves soothe your aching heart

Close your eyes
and let me hug the hurt right out of you

We'll swim with the dolphins
and laugh till our sides are sore

I want you to know
that you're never alone

There's always a way out
when desperation threatens you

I want you to know
That I love you and always will

(Written for Carly and inspired by
Ali and Chris)
