"Shine A Light In The Dark" as written by and Phil Thornalley Christian Burns....
I've been lost before and I had to pay
It was never easy but I found a way
Well the journey was hard and the road was tough
There were times when I cried lord I've had enough
Please don't desert me now
Don't you leave me stranded now I need a friend
Please don't desert me now
You've gotta show me mercy when I'm helpless

Show me mercy when I'm helpless
Shine a light in the dark
Hold me back when I get reckless
Shine a light in the dark
Stand me up if I get legless
Shine a light in the dark
Shine a light in the dark
Shine a light in the dark

I've been down and out and I've been fit to drop
But the thought of you wouldn't let me stop
Now a man should stand upon his own two feet
Because the taste of failure is a bitter sweet
Please don't desert me now
I can hear the reaper calling in the wind
Please don't desert me now
You've gotta show me mercy when I'm helpless

Show me mercy when I'm helpless
Shine a light in the dark
Hold me back when I get reckless
Shine a light in the dark
Stand me up if I get legless
Shine a light in the dark
Shine a light in the dark
Shine a light in the dark

Where were you when the chips were down
I fell apart when I hit the town
Where were you when I couldn't get arrested
Where were you when the lights went out
I blew a fuse, did you hear me shout
Where on earth do I look for heavens sake

There's a brotherhood that I want to see
Gotta take my share of equality
There's no harmony in a one man band
Even god almighty needs a helping hand
Please don't desert me now
There's no time and I can't fight another day
Please don't desert me now
You've gotta show me mercy when I'm helpless

Show me mercy when I'm helpless
Shine a light in the dark
Hold me back when I get reckless
Shine a light in the dark
Stand me up if I get legless
Shine a light in the dark
Shine a light in the dark
Shine a light in the dark
