A Little Help From You

I’m on a staircase climbing up to heaven
Taking one step forward, and slipping one or two
Can’t seem to quite get the hang of livin
Think I’m gonna need a little help from you

Having some problems saying what I’m feeling
Creating a shroud to cover up the truth
Need to open up, like an onion unpeeling
Think I’m gonna need a little help from you

Can you pull me upward;
Can you help me stand?
Will you say those kindly words;
Help me be a better man?
Can you be the friend that wraps grace around the truth
You know I’ll get by with a little help from you

In times of joy or when my heart is breakin,
When I’m bustin down the doors, or if I’m coming unglued
When all my hope for sweeter love is achin
Think I’m gonna need a little help from you

When a shot of Novocain is what my soul is wanting
Instead of hearing the sting of painful truth
I need someone to point me back to the one thing
Think I’m gonna need a little help from you

Can you pull me upward;
Can you help me stand?
Will you say those kindly words;
Help me be a better man?
Can you be the friend that wraps grace around the truth
You know I’ll get by with a little help from you

Yes, I’m gonna need (a little help from you)
Go on, watch me bleed (tell me what is true)
I’ve been freed (no there’s nothing left to do)
Think I’m gonna need a little help from you
All I really need is a little help from you
Nothing sets me free like a little help from you
