Someone stood by my side
In that hour when
Self-confidence is asleep
And self-belief has lost its way
In that dark hour when
All you do is question yourself
Because phantoms and demons and ghosts
Are whispering in your head
It is the hour when thieves are about
Stealing your last bit of self-worth
Under the cover of darkness
Thieves are faceless and this they know
And she was my sun when there was no sun
And she was my strength when I fell
And in my hour of deepest doubt
She kept our faith.
But one more thing she did
She took a walk through my dark side
And left signposts along the way
And told me: This is also you.
