No light at the end of the tunnel.
No solace to the wailing heart.
No companion to the orphaned soul.
No end to the dreary trudge.

Wherefrom did the lightning flash?

Wherefrom did the thunder smash?

Wherefrom did the hurricane splash?

Wherefrom did the heavens crash?

 

Oh, can’t you see my love departing?

Won’t you help me rekindle the flame?

 

Oh, can’t you see my nest burning?

Won’t you help me douse the blaze?

 

Oh, can’t you see my heart wailing?

Won’t you help me lift up my soul?

 

Oh, can’t you see my universe shrinking?

Won’t you help me expand my horizon?

 

No light at the end of the tunnel.

No solace to the wailing heart.

No companion to the orphaned soul.

No end to the dreary trudge.

 

Won’t you help me?
