Have you ever walked the night alone
Like a man against the world?
No one takes your side,
A boat against the tide.
When your faith is shaken,
You start to break,
And your heart can't find the words.
Tossed upon the sand,
I give you a man against the world.
All the people cheer till the end is near
Then the hero takes a fall.
They'll drag you through the mud.
You're only flesh and blood.
Oh I've walked the path from dark to light
And have yet to come to terms.
Alone I take my stand,
I'm only a man against the world.
*But love!
Like a distant reminder,
It tugs at my shoulder,
It calls me home.
I shout!
Can a single voice carry?
Can I find santuary,
Within your arms?
One day when the answer's clearer,
One day when I even the score,
You'll reach and you'll find me with you,
Right beside you,
Forever more!
But for now I walk the night alone,
Like a man against the world.
A brand new day will shine,
Through the avalanche of time.
Though the road is long,
But the feeling's strong,
And the fire within still burns.
Alone I take my stand,
I give you a man against the world.
