/_______________/  is the calm love back home.

  In my hour of need
  On a sea of grey
  On my knees I pray to you
  Help me find the dawn
  Of the dying day

  Won't you light my way?
  Won't you light my way?
 
  A bullet is a man
  From time to time he strays
  I compare my life to this - to this I relate
  And I'm willing to listen to your answers
  And I'm not afraid to tell you I need you today

  So when I'm lost
  Or I'm tired and depraved
  Or when my high bullet mind goes astray
  Won't you light my way?

  Don't save it for another day
