I will run, yes, I will roll
I will climb your mountains high
Through the valleys of deceit
Through the cold winds of denial
And though you fear the cold dark
I'll be right here by your side

'Cause until you know just who you are
You'll never know I'm near not far
I've caught your falls, I've helped you rise
I've damned these torrents from your eyes, I know

From the bosom to bare bones
Between the oceans and the sky
Since before time began
I have walked your ragged mile

And I will call like the crow
I'll be right there by your side
I am the candle in your darkest night
Whether you're wrong, whether you're right
I'll be there in your finest hour
I'll be there when it all turns sour

I know you are, I know who you are
I know you are, I know who you are
I know you are, I know who you are
I know who you are

And though at times you'll be at your knees
It's better than just running blind
I'll push you straight into the deep
I'll challenge you, boy, every time
And I won't fall and I won't waiver
I'll be right there by your side

'Cause until you be just who you are
I'll never stop, I'll always call
I've caught your falls, I've helped you rise
I've damned these torrents from your eyes

I know you are, I know who you are
I know you are, I know who you are
I know you are, I know who you are
Know you are home
