Never Alone - Lady Antebellum Words & Music by Jim Brickman

May the angels protect you, trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when its time to go home
May you always have plenty, your glass never empty
And know in your belly, you're never alone
May your tears come from laughing, you find friends worth having
With every year passing, they mean more than gold
May you win but stay humble, smile more than grumble
And know when you stumble, you're never alone
*[Chorus] Never alone, never alone
I'll be in every beat of your heart when you face the unknown
Wherever you fly, this isn't goodbye
My love will follow you, stay with you, baby you're never alone [Last verse x 2]
Well I have to be honest as much as I wanted
I'm not gonna promise the cold winds won't blow
So when hard times have found you, and your fears surround you
Wrap my love around you, you're never alone*
May the angels protect you, trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when its time to go home
And when hard times have found you, and your fear surrounds you
Wrap my love around you, you're never alone*
