As he walks along the trail
He's still all alone
Tries to leave behind the demon
That he draws along
He knows it's only in the mind
It won't rain all the time
But nobody's on the road
So he has to go alone

His cold look melts away
As he faces the sun
Tries to forget how long is
He on the lonely run
For a long time his homeward bound
Get lost but not found
But nobody's on the road
So he's still on the run

All the pain what you bear inside
Comes away with the night
All the pain eats you up alive
But you know you have to carry on the fight

On the rocky road to Dublin
He hears a little lark
Singing songs against the goblin
And the ghost of dark
Banishes all the doubts and fears
At last replaces with cheer
Last one goes the hope
But he's still all alone

Stops by a ruinous church
To have a little rest
Burbles slowly a prayer
With a chaplet in his hands
Invokes god for help
To save him from himself
But nobody's listening
As he crosses the shelf

Make way for the morning sun
The ray of light shows the way to believing
Don't be scared until it's gone
If the rain comes back it washes away
All your pain
