Lyrics

When I was young, couldn’t stand to believe it Somewhere there was a sun left to shine
But my heart won’t be still till I’ve seen it Won’t be still till I’ve made it mine
There’s a fear, can’t be seen, it surrounds me As afraid of the dark as the light
Was a time, long ago, these were safe streets
Now I’m the only one that keeps me alive
Keep me alive
But I know a hero will come
There’s a face that I’ve seen in the windows
There’s a face of a strong good man
When I turn as a leaf when the wind blows
Blown away as the will in his hands
You been dead when they want to defeat you
You were bled of the will to survive
Now you’ll stand just as long as they need you
When you’re the only one that keeps you alive
Keep you alive
But I know a hero will come
And the night, the night will be torn apart
And I know he won’t fight alone
And the spark that we carry will turn the dark into
A flame, a fire, a light
There must be an end to the darkness
There must be an end to the darkness
There must be an end to the darkness
There must be an end to the darkness
No one will come
This city is dead
But all of your heroes are gone
And the blood that they spilled is on my hands
A darkness will block out the sun
Not a thing could be done with so few men
That a hero couldn’t do When the voice from the shadows calls you
When the wind whips past your ears
Will you stand when the weight is upon you?
Or will you go to your knees in fear?
There’s a chance, though I know it’s a long shot
And the city is out of time
Off and on if your heart stops beating
'Cause you’re the only one that keeps you alive
God, keep me alive
But I know a hero will come
And all of your heroes are gone
Someone’s got to No one left to Bring back the light
And I know he won’t fight alone
A darkness will block out the sun
If we can’t
Find a way to Hold back the night
And I know a hero will come
And all of your heroes are gone
Someone’s got to No one left to Bring back the light
And I know he won’t fight alone
A darkness will block out the sun
If we can’t
Find a way to hold back the night
And I know a hero will come
But all of your heroes are gone
Someone’s got to No one left to Bring back the light
And I know he won’t fight alone
A darkness will block out the sun
If we can’t
Find a way to hold back the night
