I hear you calling out to me in the middle of the night.
Something woke you from a dream and filled your voice with fright.
I donâ€™t know what is haunting you, and I donâ€™t know just why,
But Iâ€™ll be there to catch the tears you cry.
Iâ€™ll be there to hold you when your nights are cold and lonely.
Iâ€™ll be there to hold you when you need somebody only
Just to comfort you and tell you itâ€™s all right.
Yes, Iâ€™ll be there to hold you in the night.
Your dreams are filled with sadness and an overwhelming fear.
I wish that I could chase them all away from you, my dear.
Though I am just a simple man that God above has made,
Iâ€™ll be there each time that youâ€™re afraid.
Although it seems at times as if those nights are closing in
And trapping you inside those cold and distant dreams again.
If you should feel thereâ€™s something in your dreams that means you harm,
Iâ€™ll be there to hold you in my arms.
