When the world awakes to an apocalyptic shadow
And all hope is gone, leaving no single open window
When the sky turns to a sunless, moonless, starless widow
And scorched mother earth has no flowering meadow
I will still stand by your side with an abundance of love

When the world is completely filled with misery and sorrow
And there isn’t the slightest promise of another tomorrow
When there is no kindness or no goodness left to borrow
And the bravest of men, all cower and hide in a barrow
I will still stand by your side with an abundance of love

When evil from the abysmal depths lurk in the shallow
And there isn’t a path leading to light we can follow
When there is only anguish and pain for people to wallow
And the hearts of men are empty shells, dark and hollow
I will still stand by your side with an abundance of love

When the universe comes to the end of its show
And indeed puts an end to everything that we know
No laughter, no joy, no peace, no happiness, no glow
Just weeping bloody tears running in an eternal flow
I will still stand by your side with an abundance of love

When the soil loses its essence and nothing can grow
And the winds of change become a poisonous blow
When life on earth means nothing but death row
And the spirits on men are forever cast down below
I will still stand by your side with an abundance of love
