I Walk Alone In Darkness


I walk alone in darkness
Through fields I've walked before
I find I'm growing tired
And my feet are burnt and sore

But yet I keep on moving
Not knowing where I head
Can't see a path before me
Can't see the ground I tread

And still I walk in darkness
For it's all I've ever known
And still I find I'm lost
For the way was never shown

I see bright lights before me
A land I wish to stay
I dream of all the riches waiting
If I can find my way

To never walk in darkness
And to never feel I'm lost
To never feel I'm losing
And to never count the cost

These dreams may light my thoughts
But the truth I can't ignore
I walk alone in darkness
And fear I shall - forevermore
