I think I know why you're looking so sad

But don't you worry baby

I've been in that darkness too

And I won't let it get to you

Tell me what's got you down

And I'll do my best to get it in the past

When night falls

Don't think of it as falling on you

Think of yourself as the light that leads the way

Because that's what you've been for me

I wouldn't have known what to do if it hadn't been for you

Your words got me through

And now I'm hoping mine will do the same for you

When night falls

Don't think of it as falling on you

Think of yourself as the light that leads the way

Because that's what you've been for me

Don't listen to the harsh words they spread

They just want to hurt you

If you listen to the people who care about you

Maybe it won't be so bad

When night falls

Don't think of it as falling on you

Think of yourself as the light that leads the way

Because that's what you've been for me

I'll never leave you

No matter how dark

Or how harsh this realm gets

I'm here for you

When night falls

Don't think of it as falling on you

Think of yourself as the light that leads the way

Because that's what you've been for me
