Somebody help me
I'm feeling low
I've been down for so long
Don't know which way to go
Drowning in sorrow
In deep misery
Someone throw me a line
I'm clean out of time
Lord I've got to break free

You came along like a sun in the night
Took me out of the shadows
Into the light!

Caught in a crossfire
Of heartache and pain
Searching so many years
Thro' a river of tears
Always shot down in flames

You came along like a sun in the night
Took me out of the shadows
Into the light!

[Chorus]
Now these are the best years
Truly the best years of my life
The best years of my life

Bad luck and trouble
Everyday of my life
Every lonely lonely night
Like a cold hearted twist of the knife

You came along like a sun in the night
Took me out of the shadows
Into the light!

[Chorus]

Somebody help me
I'm feeling low
I've been down so long
Babe I've got to let go

You came along like a sun in the night
Took me out of the shadows
Into the light!

[Chorus]

[Repeats Til Fade]
The best years of my life
