Count on Me

Written by Doug Harvey

Something’s wrong;
I can tell by your silence.
Thoughts are spinnin’ ’round your mind.
Open your heart and spill all your secrets.
I will always treat you kind.

All your friends
Tell you all of their troubles.
You pick them up when they fall.
Who do you turn to
When you’ve got a problem?
They’re never there when you call.

Count on me when you’re broken-hearted.
Trust in me when you’ve got the blues.
Talk to me, cry on my shoulder.
You can always count on me.

No matter where you are,
No matter what you’re doing,
You can always pick up the phone.
‘Cause I know who you are,
So no matter where you’re going,
You don’t have to go it alone.

Life is short
It’s just a brief heartbeat.
There’s not a moment to lose.
Don’t waste your time
Concealing your feelings.
Come to me and sing your blues

Count on me when you’re broken-hearted.
Trust in me when you’ve got the blues.
Talk to me, cry on my shoulder.
You can always count on me.

Count on me when there’s no one to turn to.
Trust in me, you know I’m your friend.
Talk to me, I’ll always be there.
You can always count on me.
You can always count on me.
You can always count on me.
