When the hour is upon us
And our beauty surely gone
No you will not be forgotten
No you will not be alone
No you will not be alone
And when the day has all but ended
And our echo starts to fade
No you will not be alone then
And you will not be afraid
No you will not be afraid
When the fog has finally lifted
From my cold and tired brow
No I will not leave you crying
And I will not let you down
No I will not let you down
I will not let you down
Now comes the night
Feel it fading away
And the soul underneath
Is it all that remains
So just slide over here
Leave your fear in the fray
Let us hold to each other
Till the end of our days
When the hour is upon us
And our beauty surely gone
No you will not be forgotten
And you will not be alone
No you will not be alone

    General CommentBasically, when you die the memories are still with you...all the love that you feel for someone will still be there. And he's letting the person know, don't be afraid it will all be okay.

    General CommentI always get the feeling that this song is about growing old together, and that his wife never has to be scared and cry because he will always be there beside her. Great song, very simple with just the piano and Rob's voice.

    General CommentWell, to me it could be interpreted as talking about either getting old, or die. Or maybe he's talking about stepping into a bad moment, if that ever happens ("the night") he will not let her down, they will remain together and make it through.

    General CommentRob said on the DVD side of "...Something To Be" that it is about growing old and dying together, but it doesn't matter, because one will have the other forever. This song displays Rob's lyrical talent as well as his wonderful abilities behind the piano. He is a true mind at work. Only if the radio had more of this man...

    General CommentA simple promise - Til death do us part, and even then...that person will 'live' in you still. Love just doesn't go away...I don't believe it ever does. What a moving song... it makes death such a beautiful part of life...eventhough its the end. Parting ways with love by your side is an affirmation that you lived a full rich life...a meaningful one. Its probably the last best thought I would think. This song moves me.
