They got scared when the lights went low.
I'll get you through it nice and slow
When the world's spinning out of control
Afraid of what they might lose.
Might get scraped or they might get bruised
You could beg but what's the use.
That's why it's called the moment of truth.
I'll get it if you need it
I'll search if you don't see it
You're thirsty I'll be your rain
You get hurt I'll take your pain
I know you don't believe it
But I said it and I still mean it
When you heard what I told you
When you get worried I'll be your soldier
Funny when times get hard
At the last moment when your supposed to charge
Always on the longest yard.
Whoa, they feel their feet getting cold
Hiding here, hiding there
Find them underneath the stairs
People hiding everywhere
Trying to be still as a stone
My aim is so true I wanna show you
I'll try forever
I'm never gonna say surrender
