Don't despair, you're there
From beginning to middle to end
Don't despair, you're there
Through my wasted days
You're there through my wasted nights

Oh despair, you've always been there
You were there through my wasted years
Through all my lonely fears, no tears
Run through my fingers, tears
They're stinging my eyes, no tears
If it's all in my head there's nothing to fear
Nothing to fear inside

Through the darkness and the light
Some sun has got to rise

My sun is your sun
Your sun is our sun

Oh despair, you were there through my wasted days
You're there through my wasted nights
You're there through my wasted years
You're there through my wasted life


You've always been there
You were there through my wasted years
Through all of my lonely fears
Run through my fingers, tears
They're stinging my eyes, no tears
We're all on the edge, there's nothing to fear
Nothing to fear inside

Through the darkness and the light
Some sun has got to rise

My sun is your sun
Your sun is our sun
