"I will work harder" (animal farm boxer the horse)


Verse 1
How does it feel to walk and empty road
Where no one cares if you're coming home.
Everyone you once held dear
Left you here in this dark place
How do you face this?
Living through this crisis
With no one to call your own
But there's still hope

Chorus
When you need someone to lean on
Or when you say you're done
I'll be right by your side
I'll pick up the pieces of your shattered life.
And keep you safe from the darkness.
So remember when you feel alone
And you need saving
My heart is your haven
And I'll keep you close to home

V2

The world around you has grown cold
By the Winter in your soul.
The sun has set forever
And even the stars aren't in your favor.
The roses you've held by the dozen
Have become frozen
Along with your heart.
You don't believe in heroes anymore
And the bitter cold drops below zero.
But there's still hope for the sun to rise again
Someday, so remember this.

V3
Your dreams have been buried by sadness
Like leaves in the fall are kept in the darkness.
The loneliness knocked you down to your knees
And ignored your cries and pleas.
Don't you worry, it's not going to last forever
I'll be your guardian angel and save you from your tormentor.
It'll be okay.

Chorus
When you need someone to lean on
Or when you say you're done
I'll be right by your side
I'll pick up the pieces of your shattered life.
And keep you safe from the darkness.
So remember when you feel alone
And you need saving
My heart is your haven
And I'll keep you close to home

Bridge
Let these words keep you warm.
Just stay calm,
I'll help you be stronger.
Things will get better
Cause spring will come around
And bring you back on the ground

Chorus
When you need someone to lean on
Or when you say you're done
I'll be right by your side
I'll pick up the pieces of your shattered life.
And keep you safe from the darkness.
So remember when you feel alone
And you need saving
My heart is your haven
And I'll keep you close to home
