"Help Me Thru The Night" as written by and Joseph Fidler Walsh....
Somewhere along the way, I found a meaning
I woke up dreaming, along the way
It never quite seems the same when you awaken
And making up for the time is such a price to pay
And it just ain't fair

[Chorus]
So, help me through, mama
Help me to ease the pain
And tell me it's alright
Help me through the night, once again

That's the danger in pretending
Trying to defend yourself from someone else's war
I don't know what they're fighting for
And I just don't care

    General CommentI've wondered if this wasn't also written for or influenced by the death of his daughter, Emma, who was killed in a car accident--"Song for Emma" can also be found on the same album.

    At first, bad news, like the death of a child, doesn't even seem real, and you can't get a hold of it. But then it does, and you feel so helpless ("it just ain't fair"); you want nothing more than someone to "tell me it's alright" and "help me through the night".

    That's my take on it, at least.
