Talking makes us human thats what I was told
So why do I find it so difficult to let my feelings unfold
Had I the courage to tell you Id promise you this

If thats what you need
Ill be the river Ill be the mountain always beside you
If thats what you need
I will be stronger I will be braver than ever before

When you came along and turned it all around
I promised myself I wouldnt tell you
Until we stood on solid ground
Holding the candle between us Ill tell you this

If thats what you need
Ill be the river Ill be the mountain always beside you
If thats what you need
I will be stronger I will be braver than ever before

And if theres any kind of danger
I hear you calling out my name
You can follow in my footsteps
And I will lead you safely back again

I never understood you however hard I tried
But it took me a while until I realised
That all the problems were mine
Holding you nearer to me to tell you this

If thats what you need
Ill be the river Ill be the mountain always beside you
If thats what you need
I will be stronger I will be braver than ever before
And when things go wrong
Ill be your conscience there to remind you all of your life
When you go wrong
Ill be the reason youll be protected all of your days
