Constancy

when the bad old night comes dancing down to get you

and the huntsman's dogs are baying for your blood

and none of your so-called friends will protect you

i will be there 

i will be there

sure enough

when all the doors have closed themselves against you

and the windows all are shuttered locked and barred

and everyone is trying to forget you

i will be there 

i will be there

where you are

maybe we'll both be helpless

maybe i'm just naive

but when they drive you out with mirthless laughter

i will be there

i will be there

yes indeed

put your back to mine i will defend you

should circumstances twist our story so

and even the strongest gale shall not upend you

i'll be constant 

i'll be constant

so you know

nothing bad lasts forever

and this too in time shall pass

and with the changing of the weather

i'll be constant

i'll be constant

remember that

when the day begins to beckon at the corners

and the savage night has put away her teeth

and you start to feel your two feet underneath you

i will be there

i will be there

you will see
