Lead Vocals:Mike Peters
Lyrics
:

I cry my soul to sleep
Somewhere in the starless night
I yearn for safety's keep
Away from hurt outside of time
Oh wherever I run I can�t hide
From the knife in the light

I close my eyes to be free
Of all the loneliness I feel
So many against me
So many seek to harm me dear
Oh protection sweeping over me
You�re my hope my shield

Lead me through the darkness
Lead me through the bitter tears
Guide me to my only hope
Lead me through the shadows
Lead me through the darkness tonight

The raging waters fall
All around and drowning me
See my life in chains
Show me mercy hand me down the key

Oh you are my shield my glory
You can set me free

Lead me through the darkness
Lead me through the bitter tears
Guide me to my only hope
Lead me through the shadows
Lead me through the darkness tonight

In times of trouble you come to me
In times of danger you come to my aid
You give your all to me, 
When I need it most
And lead me though
You guide me through the sweet and bitter tears

Ah lead me, oh hold me
Come on and show me
Lead me on

Lead me through the darkness
Lead me through the bitter tears
Guide me to my only hope
Lead me through the shadows
Lead me through the darkness tonight

Lead me on
Lead me through the sweet and bitter tears
Lead me on
Lead me on

Mike Peters Notes
:A song that was first played on the ‘Electric Folklore’ tour. This song has been tried a few times in the studio by the band and we always felt uncomfortable with our performance, maybe it was the relaxed sessions of “RAW” that allowed this long time favourite of the bands’ to finally appear on an Alarm record.
