Have you ever walked alone at night 
Like a man against the world 
No one takes your side 
A boat against the tide 
When your faith is shaken you start to break 
And your heart can't find the words 
Tossed upon the sand 
I give you a man against the world 
All the people cheer 'til the end is near 
And the hero takes a fall 
Then they'll drag you through the mud 
You're only flesh and blood 
Now I've walked the path from dark to light 
And they've yet to come to terms 
Alone I take my stand 
I'm only a man against the world 
But love, like a distant reminder 
It tugs at my shoulder 
It calls me home 
I shout, can a single voice carry 
Will I find sanctuary within your arms 
Someday when the answer's clearer 
Someday when I even the score 
You'll reach and you'll find me near you 
Right beside you, forevermore 
But for now I'll walk the night alone 
Like a man against the world 
A brand new day will shine 
Through the avalanche of time 
Now the road's grown long, but the spirit's strong 
And the fire within still burns 
Alone I take my stand 
I give you a man against the world
