Take My Hand

Take My Hand

When this world seems harsh and cruel

and sees no deeper than the skin

you need not be afraid

just take my hand


When you smile to hide your soul,

pretend their words aren't causing pain

when it's all out of control

just take my hand


You need someone who cares

enough to try to understand,

someone to cushion all the blows

just take my hand


It's your smile they'll try to steal

to leave you grim and sad

When life gives you a raw deal

Just take my hand.
