Overs
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all, all
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Now that I’m 69 and 9 years divorced, it blows me away that two young kids no older than their mid 20’s at the time so perfectly and succinctly describe at least 80% of all marriages.

A melancholy song for a kid to listen to on a snowy day in upstate New York, in the Sixties. I am resigned now that life is always melancholy.

I'm 53 and I think I've reached the conclusion myself for the most part.

I remember thinking, at the time of its release, that Bookends was a perfect album. And all these years later, I have no reason to change my opinion.

William Cullen

HVW, Funny, I felt the same way about Bookends, 50 years ago!

Artie always said that he thought the duo were at their creative height in that period covering the Parsley, Sage album and Side 1 of Bookends. Exquisite.

Ayden Salazar

This was rejected by the film producers of The Graduate? How could they? This is really heartfelt! (and that solo by Art is absolutely graceful!)

Amy Crunch

No place for it in the story.

Diego Hernandez

This and punkys dilemma which was also a good one.

The Graduate is one the best movies ever made. I think they knew what they were doing. Better off on bookends anyway
