Everyone needs a helping hand
For the heart and soul.

I talk, listen, and most of all,
I care about you.

Don't be afraid, you can tell me,
And I promise I won't tell.

I know how it feels to be down.
Like the world is going to end. 

Like any little thing will make you
Burst into sobs.

I promise I'll do anything 
To make you feel a little happier.

You may feel like there's no one.
Like you can't even trust the wind.

Even if you don't know me and I, you.
I'll do my best to help you.

Parents bugging you about school, 
Grandparents' health, I've gone through it. 

Parents fight constantly,
Been there, still there.

I know how to comfort,
Maybe not solve.

I don't get tired of listening.
I could never stop caring.

I love making people happy.
That's just what I do. 

Next time you feel like you could die,
You can talk to me.

I've made new friends
Just by listening and helping.

Try smiling to someone who looks down,
It'll make them feel a bit better.

Everyone needs someone to listen to them,
I could be that person for you.
