"Help Me Thru The Night" as written by and Joseph Fidler Walsh....
Somewhere along the way
I found the meaning
Woke up dreaming
Along the way
Never quite seems the same
When you awaken
And making up for the time
Is such a price to pay
Then they take your dream away
And it just ain't fair
So help me thru the night, mama
Help me ease the pain
And tell me it's alright
Help me thru the night
Once again
That's the danger in pretending
Trying to defend yourself
From someone else's war
Don't know what they're fighting for
And they just don't care
So help me to see the light, mama
Open my eyes again
And tell me it's alright
Help me thru the night
Once again
Ooh, defend me…

    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.
