"Darkest Hour" as written by and Glen Phillips....
If I lose my faith
Just remind me, just remind me
When my shadow's longer
Stay beside me till it's brighter
How easily I forget
How beautiful to see it once again
In my darkest hour I will be freed
When I close my eyes
I hope to find you, hope to find you

When I leave my body
I want to be ready, willing like you were
I sat beside you then
I felt the warmth as it left your hands

I've been waiting so long
That waiting was the end
Let this sleeper awaken again

    General CommentThis song is about the death of Glen's father.

    "I was actually with him when he went away; everybody else was having dinner, and they didn't want to bug him so I got to sit with him for a good, long time. It was a very good experience, believe it or not. If you ever want a powerful experience, be near someone you love when they pass away. Try to get all your stuff out of the way before that happens so you're not being all remorseful.... And it's quite incredible."

    General CommentThis song was really touching when I saw him on "The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn". It reminded me of the passing of my grandparents. This guy is really great; I didn't even know he was part of Toad the Wet Sprocket.
