Verse 1

I had a nightmare again, you see.

A stranger was swinging his knife at me.

I turned to you, told you I'm afraid.

You pulled me close to your chest and you said,

Chorus

"Don't be scared, just cross the street."

You help me find courage in my heart beat.

"Don't be scared, just cross the street."

With your words of strength my path is now lit.

"Don't be scared, just cross the street."

*I was falling, but I'll rise above it.

Verse 2

And I woke up with you miles away.

But I know, brother, this is what you'd say.

I'll cross the street, his knife can't scar me.

I'll take the high road, I'll be fine, you'll see.

Chorus

"Don't be scared, just cross the street."

You help me find courage in my heart beat.

"Don't be scared, just cross the street."

With your words of strength my path is now lit.

"Don't be scared, just cross the street."

*I was falling, but I'll rise above it.

Bridge

And when I fall asleep tonight, I know I'm safe.

When the voices start to whisper, I'll just turn deaf.

And focus on your words instead,

Going round and round in my head,

Chorus

"Don't be scared, just cross the street."

You help me find courage in my heart beat.

"Don't be scared, just cross the street."

With your words of strength my path is now lit.

"Don't be scared, just cross the street."

*I was falling, but I'll rise above it.

*Seether- Rise above it reference.
