Lyrics

Even at the break of day
The darkness barely fades away
We all know there are so many times
Its hard to find the right words to say

All I know is I believe in you
And I know there?s nothing you can?t do
You can count on my waiting here for you
Feel my touch when the lights go out,
when the lights go out,
when the lights go out

Worries clutter up your head
It?s the bitter taste of unwelcome fears
The longest road is the one we walk alone
And the meaning of this life is so unclear

All I know is I believe in you
And I know there?s nothing you can?t do
You can count on my waiting here for you
Feel my touch when the lights go out
when the lights go out - I keep the fire burning
when the lights go out - I keep the fire burning
when the lights go out?

All I know is I believe in you
And I know there?s nothing you can?t do
You can count on my waiting here for you
Feel my touch when the lights go out
when the lights go out - I keep the fire burning
