Quote for my daughter

If You Ever Find Yourself Stuck In The Middle Of The Sea,
I’ll Sail The World To Find You
If You Ever Find Yourself Lost In The Dark And You Can’t See,
I’ll Be The Light To Guide You

Find Out What We’re Made Of
When We Are Called To Help Our Friends In Need

You Can Count On Me Like 1 2 3
I’ll Be There
And I Know When I Need It I Can Count On You Like 4 3 2
And You’ll Be There
Cause That’s What Friends Are Supposed To Do, Oh Yeah

If You Toss And You Turn And You Just Can’t Fall Asleep
I’ll Sing A Song
Beside You
And If You Ever Forget How Much You Really Mean To Me
Everyday I Will
Remind You

Ohh

When We Are Called To Help Our Friends In Need

You Can Count On Me Like 1 2 3
I’ll Be There

You’ll Be There
Cause That’s What Friends Are Supposed To Do, Oh Yeah

You’ll Always Have My Shoulder When You Cry
I’ll Never Let Go
Never Say Goodbye

And I Know When I Need It I Can Count On You Like 4 3 2
You’ll Be There
Cause That’s What Friends Are Supposed To Do, Oh Yeah
