Lyrics

I came to this town, was all by myself
Had left all my friends far behind me
I wandered around, but nobody else
Was willing to see me and guide me

Then one day I built up the strength
To go and ask you for some help
And you told me, don't be afraid
You understood what I felt

I didn't expect you to trust me
But you told me all anyway
Although you don't know
With you I am strong
To conquer my fears every day
So I'm not afraid to say thank you, my friend
For making me smile today

You showed me the things I wanted to see
And called me to be in your circle
And what was unknown, mysterious to me
Is now a familiar diversion

I suppose you don't realize
But I have always yearned for this
What you gave to me has no price
A peace of mind to exist

I didn't expect you to trust me
But you told me all anyway
Although you don't know
With you I am strong
To conquer my fears every day
So I'm not afraid to say thank you, my friend
For making me smile today

Tão cedo eu não esperava
Que em mim confiasses assim
Embora não saibas, contigo eu sou
Mais forte que o medo em mim
Portanto não temo te agradecer
Por teres me feito sorrir

Hey, and if you need someone to give you a hand
Just call and I'll come right away

English translation

So soon I didn't expect
That you would trust me like this
Although you don't know, with you I am
Stronger than the fear in me
Therefore I don't fear thanking you
For having made me smile
