Despite the lies that you're making
Your love is mine for the taking
My love is
Just waiting
To turn your tears to roses

Despite the lies that you're making
Your love is mine for the taking
My love is
Just waiting
To turn your tears to roses

I will be the one that's gonna hold you
I will be the one that you run to
My love is
A burning, consuming fire

[Chorus:]
No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes I'll light the night with stars
Hear the whispers in the dark
No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes you know I'm never far
Hear the whispers in the dark
Whispers in the dark

You feel so lonely and ragged
You lay here broken and naked
My love is
Just waiting
To clothe you in crimson roses

I will be the one that's gonna find you
I will be the one that's gonna guide you
My love is
A burning, consuming fire

[Chorus:]
No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes I'll light the night with stars
Hear the whispers in the dark
No
You'll never be alone
When darkness comes you know I'm never far
Hear the whispers in the dark ~x2~

    TKDshadow Is Right On.
    I Agree 100% With Them.
    The Whole Song's About
    Metaphorically Explaining
    How God Is There Even
    When You Think He's Not.

    I think this song is saying that we all have our demons waiting for us and that there is always someone waiting there for us...

    weather it be god(touchy subject)...

    or some one close to us...

    they will always be there to help us on our way

    Well. I suppose since god is just SOOO AMAZING and I can NEVER understand this song because I've NEVER believed in god, that means all people who don't follow your beliefs should just never listen to music written by christian bands? So a non Jew can't listen to Jewish music, even if they like it, because they aren't a Jew? Americans can't be Buddist because they're not asian? I can't believe this song to be about a man in love with a woman, and not some creepy love between a man and an imaginary being? I'm afraid I don't see the logic in your arguments. If the band is religious, okay, thank you, I now have a reason why you believe it to be a religious song. I never said that you as people, as INDIVIUALS are wrong. I simply said what I felt. I'm sorry if I offended you.

    I believe this song is about how no matter what someone will always be there for you and you will always have someone that loves you even you dont know it in dark times. :)
