Where did all the people go?
They got scared when the lights went low.
I'll get you through it nice and slow
When the world's spinning out of control

Afraid of what they might lose.
Might get scraped or they might get bruised
You could beg but what's the use.
That's why it's called the moment of truth.

Chorus:
I'll get it if you need it
I'll search if you don't see it
You're thirsty I'll be your rain
You get hurt I'll take your pain

I know you don't believe it
But I said it and I still mean it
When you heard what I told you
When you get worried I'll be your soldier

2nd verse:
Funny when times get hard
At the last moment when your supposed to charge
Always on the longest yard.
Whoa, they feel their feet getting cold

Hiding here, hiding there
Find them underneath the stairs
People hiding everywhere
Trying to be still as a stone

Chorus

My aim is so true I wanna show you
I'll try forever
I'm never gonna say surrender

    This song is so beautiful! It brings tears to my eyes. I think it means loving someone so much that you would do anything for them.

    I beleive that he loves this person and he doesn't want them to be in pain, instead he would rather take it for them. He wants to be their soilder, to be as strong as possible so that they don't have to.

    The song means that whenever you are having a hard time coping up with life, with the world at its dim state, there's always someone to help you. It means that if it seems that you lost, you didn't actually, you just need help from someone to listen to you, to be a listening ear, to be a soldier to fight your battles with you.
