  • Yeah, I don't know where to begin
    So I'll start by saying I refuse to forget you
    I refuse to be silenced
    I refuse to neglect you
    That's for every last soul up in Grenfell
    Even though I've never even met you
    Cuh that could've been my mum's house
    Or that could've been my nephew
    Now, that could've been me up there
    Waving my white plain tee up there
    With my friends on the ground tryna see up there
    I just hope that you rest and you're free up there
    I can't feel your pain but it's still what it is
    Went to the block just to chill with the kids
    Troubled waters come running past
    I'mma be right there just to build you a bridge, yo

    When you're weary
    And feeling small
    When tears are in
    Your eyes
    I will dry them 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

    So much pain in my heart
    My community's moving me
    Choose to gleam as we're facing the dark

    When you're down and out
    When you're on the street
    When evening falls so hard
    I will comfort you
    Yes, I will
    And I'll take your part
    When darkness comes
    And pain is all around

    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay, I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down Writer/s: Paul Simon
