Song Lyrics

[Current lead singer = Normal, BG/Choir = Italics,
Bono = Bold]

Hoo…

This is for that little child with no father
For that man that doesn’t have a place to stay
For that little boy living with AIDS
Can I tell you a story, tell you a story
You can lean on me

There’s a man (oh yes)
Standing on the corner
He has no home
He has no food
And his blue skies are gone (yes it is)
Can’t you hear him cryin’ out

And there’s a girl
Searching for a father and a friend
Praying that the storm someday will end
But instead of walking away
Open up your heart and say

I am here
You don’t have to worry
I can see…

I can see your tears
….your tears
I’ll be there in a hurry when you call
Yes I will
Friends are there to catch you when you fall
Here’s my shoulder
Here’s my shoulder, you can lean on me

Hallelujah
Ooooohhhh
Oh, there’s a child
There’s a child
Who is sick and begging to be free
But there is no cure for his disease
He looks up to his mother and

As she hold (holds), his hand (his hand)
Prayin’ that someday
The sun will shine again

And the pain?
And the pain will end
Pain will end….Come on

I am here
I am here
You don’t have to worry
You don’t have to worry
I can see…
I see…
your tears
….your tears, yeah
I’ll be there in a hurry when you call
I’ll be there in a hurry when you call
Friends are there to catch you when you fall
I’m your friend and I’ll catch you when, when, when you fall, yeah, yeah, yeah
Here’s my shoulder, you can lean on me
Here’s my shoulder, you can lean on me, yeah

Tell me, how can I, how can I love Jesus
When I’ve never seen His face
Yeah, I see you dying
And I turn and walk away

So hold my hand
Oooooohhhhh
Let me take you to a friend of mine
He’s waiting just to ease your troubled mind
Yeah, yeah, He loves you more than you’ll ever know
‘Stead of walking away
Open up
Open up your heart and say…
Come on

I am here
I am here
You don’t have to worry
You don’t…hey-yeay
I can see your tears
Oh-oh…
I’ll be there in a hurry when you call
Yeah yeah yeah
Alleluia
You don’t ever have to worry
That’s what friends are for
Aaaaaaah
Hoo, Lord
Here’s my shoulder, you can lean on me
Yeah…

I am here
Call on me yeah, me yeah
You don’t have to worry
I can see you tears
You can lean on me
I’ll be be there in a hurry
You can lean on me
When you call
Friends will be there to catch you when
Catch you when you fall
Whoo…thank you, Jesus

Here’s my shoulder, you can lean on me
Yeah yeah oh yeah
