Darkest Hour of the Night

It’s the darkest hour of the night
Oh, I can’t find my way
In the darkest hour of the night
I pray for the break of day
Ever since she went away
I felt so torn and prayed
In the darkest hour of the night

My friends tell me that I
Must be strong (must be strong)
It’s not so easy when your
Reasons have gone

It’s the coldest hour of the night
My walls are breaking down
In the coldest hour of the night
There’s no comfort to be found
Ever since I lost my way
My hope has gone astray
In the darkest hour of the night

My friends tell me that I
Must be strong (must be strong)
It’s not so easy when your
Whole dream has gone wrong

(In the darkest hour)

All the tears I’m crying, I’m crying
Will the sun be rising, be rising
In the darkest hour of the night
In the darkness, in the darkness
The darkest hour of the night
I want you, I need you, I miss you
In the darkest hour of the night
In the darkness, in the darkness
Darkest hour of the night
