"Always There" is a song from The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island. It is the second song sung in the film, and is sung by Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, and Petrie, on their first night alone on the island, as they are in the midst of trying to get off of the island and find their families, whom they are thinking about.


In the movie, The Mysterious Island, when Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, Petrie and Spike are on the island, and the land path from the mainland, across the sea (called "Big Water" in the The Land Before Time universe) has been washed away by a tsunami, they spend the night trying unsuccessfully to sleep.

After a while, they give up, and begin to miss their families, during which Ducky sings about how her mother would comfort her if she was scared at night, while Cera sings about how her father would give her reassurance when she was afraid of the storms.

Finally, Littlefoot sings about how his mother told him she would never leave him, no matter what state she was in. Littlefoot then looks out at a star in the sky which twinkles at him; it can be presumed that this is his mother, watching over him. As the song ends, the children finally go to sleep, reassured that wherever their parents are, they are watching over them.


When the sun went down
And everyone was sleeping
If I heard a sound
Like things around me creeping
She would wrap her tail around me
And tell me "Don't be scared"
And I knew that I was safe because
She's always there


When the storms would come
And things would seem so bad
And I'd wanna cry

I'd listen to my dad
He promised that the rain would pass
The day would soon be fair
And I never was afraid because
He's always there

Always there
Someone you can count on
To comfort you
Always there
Like a green, green valley
You can come home to

I remember now
Like it was yesterday
She would hold me close
And then I'd hear her say
"You know I'll never leave you...
You can find me everywhere
In the morning light, the evening star
I'm always there"

Always there
Someone you can count on
To comfort you
Always there
Like a green, green valley
You can come home to

Always there
