10cc - Shine A Light In The Dark Lyrics




i've been lost before and i had to pay
it was never easy but i found a way
well the journey was hard and the road was tough
there were times when i cried lord i've had enough
please don't desert me now
don't you leave me stranded now i need a friend
please don't desert me now
you've gotta show me mercy when i'm helpless

show me mercy when i'm helpless
shine a light in the dark
hold me back when i get reckless
shine a light in the dark
stand me up if i get legless
shine a light in the dark
shine a light in the dark
shine a light in the dark

i've been down and out and i've been fit to drop
but the thought of you wouldn't let me stop
now a man should stand upon his own two feet
because the taste of failure is a bitter sweet
please don't desert me now
i can hear the reaper calling in the wind
please don't desert me now
you've gotta show me mercy when i'm helpless

show me mercy when i'm helpless
shine a light in the dark
hold me back when i get reckless
shine a light in the dark
stand me up if i get legless
shine a light in the dark
shine a light in the dark
shine a light in the dark

where were you when the chips were down
i fell apart when i hit the town
where were you when i couldn't get arrested
where were you when the lights went out
i blew a fuse, did you hear me shout
where on earth do i look for heavens sake

there's a brotherhood that i want to see
gotta take my share of equality
there's no harmony in a one man band
even god almighty needs a helping hand
please don't desert me now
there's no time and i can't fight another day
please don't desert me now
you've gotta show me mercy when i'm helpless

show me mercy when i'm helpless
shine a light in the dark
hold me back when i get reckless
shine a light in the dark
stand me up if i get legless
shine a light in the dark
shine a light in the dark
shine a light in the dark
[repeat to fade]

  1. David Mann

    Please dont kill me now.

  2. Mack Sarnie

    Song is about seeking the light of the light bearer

  3. Marcia Estep

    love this song ..sounds like
    America right now really speaks

  4. michavandam

    This is a Bluesy song. The feeling that it conveys to me, regardless of the exact meaning of the words, is one of comfortless, joyless, unfulfilled, low-spirited, hollowed-out defeat - and I sometimes really need to hear it.

  5. Swedefunkygirl

    love this song <3 !

  6. Emjala Alajme

    @Polyphemus47 ...totally agree, it's my favourite song of all time!

  7. Bill Melton

    If I could 'like' this 300 times, I would. I love this song.

    michavandam

    You should never like it 300 times. 299 or 301 is alright though.
