Lyrics:

YOU WERE THERE
on the day that I was drowning
in a sea of silvery screens
only you looked up in time
fingers dancing
so quick to spread the word
the same hands
so slow to reach out

but you were there
when the night came crashing at my door
when the stars were blown away
and the darkness had its way
you were there
when the back dog beat me down
body broken on the floor
ripped apart by vicious claws
you were there
you were there

on the day that I was drowning
the cry that made no sound
only you and you alone
tuned in to listen
the people around us
with everything to say
yet nothing to learn
and nothing to give

but you were there
when the night came crashing at my door
when the stars were blown away
and the darkness had it's way
you were there
when the black dog beat me down
body broken on floor
ripped apart by vicious claws
you were there
you were there
you were there
you were always there

you were there
when the night came crashing at my door
when the stars were blown away
and the darkness had it's way
you were there
when the black dog beat me down
body broken on floor
ripped apart by vicious claws
you were there
you were there
