Through The Night     (Rick Bacus)
from the album Morningstar (1978)


Sneakin' out the back way, runnin' down the street
I just can't take the pressure
I can't take the heat
So if I fall please catch me, I can't stand on my own feet
Please help me, I beg of you
Please comfort me, I'll make it through the night

Reachin' out to touch you, my hand's been slapped again
These thoughts will drive you crazy, so hard to comprehend
So if I cry please hold me, I'm in need of a good friend
Please help me, I beg of you
Take care of me, I'll make it
Through the night

There's reasons why I'm angry
There's reasons why I'm scared
If only someone heard me,
If only someone cared
But no one wants to listen,
They're all so unaware
Oh please help me, I beg of you
Take care of me, I'll make it
Through the night

There's no one here to narrate, the act you'll see tonight
My life is at a stalemate, this man is full of fright
So save a place for me Lord, I hope I've done it right
Oh please help me, I beg of you
Please comfort me, I'll make it
Through the night

Sneakin' out the back way, runnin' down the street
I just can't take the pressure
I can't take the heat
So if I fall please catch me, I can't stand on my own feet
Please help me, I beg of you
Oh don't sell me, I'll make it
Through the night
