Darkness and agony we can defeat
Throughout (the) blackest nights we shine our light!

Reach out for a helping hand
Before you're drowning in quicksand
On troubled waters you set your sails
In stormy days destine your fate

I stand by your side
When life is cruel
And hard but we can make it
We stand hand in hand

EEEEEYAAAAHHHHHH!

When you're down, almost dead, I will be there for you
When the tides of your life try to swallow you whole
When the darkness overcomes
Try to reach for the skies when you're facing the ground
Try to prosper from the soil that has brought you down
When the darkness overcomes

Forget the struggle that you stepped in
You're not alone, we will begin
A new life filled with contentment
In these sad days (we'll) rise up again

I stand by your side
When life is cruel
And hard but we can make it
We stand hand in hand

When you're down, almost dead, I will be there for you
When the tides of your life try to swallow you whole
When the darkness overcomes
Try to reach for the skies when you're facing the ground
Try to prosper from the soil that has brought you down
When the darkness overcomes

When you're down, almost dead, I will be there for you
When the tides of your life try to swallow you whole
When the darkness overcomes
Try to reach for the skies when you're facing the ground
Try to prosper from the soil that has brought you down
When the darkness overcomes
I'm your bringer of light!
