Hold Back the Night

This song is by The Protomen and appears on the single This City Made Us (2015).

Original video
When I was young, couldn't stand to believe it
Somewhere there was a sun left to shine
Now my heart won't be still till I've seen it
Won't be still till I've made it mine

There's a fear, can't be seen, it surrounds me
As afraid of the dark as the light
Was a time, long ago, these were safe streets
Now I'm the only one that keeps me alive
Keep me alive!

But I know a hero will come

There's a face that I've seen in the windows
There's a face of a stronger man
When I turn, as a leaf when the wind blows
Gone away is the will in his hand

You've been fed what they wanted to feed you
You've been bled of the will to survive
Now you stand just as long as they need you
But you're the only one that keeps you alive
Keep you alive

But I know a hero will come
And the night, the night will be torn apart
And I know we won't fight alone
And the spark that we carry will turn the dark into
A flame, a fire, a light

There must be an end to the darkness
No one will come. This City is dead


But all of your heroes are gone
And the blood that they spilled is on my hands
A darkness will block out the sun
Not a thing can be done with so few men
That a hero couldn't do!

When the voice from the shadows calls you
When the wind whips past your ears
Will you stand when the weight is upon you
Or will you go to your knees in fear?

There's a chance, though I know it's a long shot
And the City is out of time
All for naught if your heart stops beating
'Cause you're the only one that keeps it alive
God, keep it alive!

But I know a hero will come
And all of your heroes are gone
Someone's got to
No one left to
Bring back the light
Bring back the light

And I know we won't fight alone
A darkness will block out the sun if we can't
Find a way to hold back the night
Find a way to hold back the night

We can hold out past the endless dark
All a fire needs is a single spark
