Why in the silence of the night
Do I hear a voice inside
That cries, that cries for more
Since you rushed into my door
You, gave to me your holy word
But you left me in this world
I try, I'm try'n pray

But you light just fades away
I'm walking through the night
Searchin' for a light, oh Lord
I'm wanderin' in the dark
Lookin' for a spot, oh Lord
Longin' for the day
Can't you show the way, oh Lord
Don't leave me on my own

It's hard to be alone
When nothing's going right
When living' believing is a fight
Don't leave me here alone
Shine you can take this heart of mine
Now do you help me travel high
I cry, I cry'n pray
I won't let you fade away

I'm walking through the night
Searching for a light, oh God
I'm wandering in the dark
Looking for a spot, oh God
Longing for the day
Can't you show the way, oh Lord

Don't leave me on my own
It's hard to be alone
When nothing's going right
When living'n believing is a fight
Don't leave me all alone
Why can't I live without you
Why
