help is on the way lyrics – average white band

seems to me that you’ve been stranded
far too long
watchin’ the sands of time
trickle away,
won’t you talk to me,
tell me what’s eatin’ at ‘cha
even if you don’t know what to say
you know that the time is right
to turn this thing around –
it’s getting closer to you
don’t give up because pain is all
you’ve found

lighten up ‘cos help is on the way
have a little faith in someone new
this is not a line i’m throwin’ –

lighten up ‘cos help is on the way

you and me, walking down easy
streets together
is a dream i cannot see slippin’ away
why don’t you get to me
over this distance you’ve created
and i’ll put you in – set you free
you know the time is right
to turn this thing around –
you’re getting closer to me
don’t give up because pain is all
you’ve found
