No One is Alone by Bernadette Peters

Mother cannot guide you.
Now you're on your own.
Only me beside you.
Still, you're not alone.
No one is alone. Truly.
No one is alone.
Sometimes people leave you.
Halfway through the wood.
Others may deceive you.
You decide what’s good.
You decide alone.
But no one is alone.

I wish...
I know.
Mother isn't here now
Wrong things, right things
Who knows what she'd say?
Who can say what's true?
Nothings quite so clear now.
Do things, fight things,
Feel you've lost your way?
You decide, but
You are not alone
Believe me,
No one is alone 
No one is alone.
Believe me.
You move just a finger,
Say the slightest word,
Somethings bound to linger
Be heard
No acts alone.
No one is alone.
People make mistakes.
People make mistakes,
Holding to their own,
Thinking their alone.
Honor their mistakes
Everybody makes 
Fight for their mistakes
One another's terrible mistakes.
Witches can be right, Giants can be good.
You decide what's right you decide what's good
Just remember:
Someone is on your side
Someone else is not
While we're seeing our side
Maybe we forgot: they are not alone.
No one is alone.
Hard to see the light now.
Just don't let it go
Things will come out right now.
We can make it so.
Someone is on your side
