About the song
Being a fan of Simon & Garfunkle, I had a fondness for "The Boxer" tune and always wanted to write something similar. This is the result of that effort.
Though is was supposed to be more Folk/Rock, once the rest of the band started playing it, it ended up more Folk/Country! :-)
I still love the lyrics, though...
On the road of my existence
I go looking for my dreams
Disappointments in my Life
Make me ask "oh Lord, why me?"
In a search that's never ending
Filled with neverending schemes...

So as I sort my feelings
In emotional retreat
I am sinking, I am sinking
Yet my mind won't clearly see
That in giving You my all Lord,
You've made a Way for me...

In the night
When I'm lost and all alone
In the night
When there seems no hope at all
In the night
Lord You've come to save me,
Lord You gave me, Light...
In the Night

So on I go insisting
I can make it on my own
Yet, the doubts that plague my thinking
Prove instead I can't go on
In this masquerade of Life
Am I truly all alone?

Then in those final moments
When it's seem all hope is gone
The Night begins to fade
Into the Light of early Dawn
You've always made a Way for me
A chance to carry on
