Endless Night (from "The Lion King")

Music by Lebo M., Hans Zimmer, and Jay Rifkin | Lyrics by Julie Taymor

Where has the starlight gone?
Dark is the day
How can I find my way home?

Home is an empty dream
Lost to the night
Father, I feel so alone.

You promised you'd be there
Whenever I needed you
Whenever I call your name
You're not anywhere.

I'm trying to hold on
Just waiting to hear your voice
One word, just a word will do
To end this nightmare.

When will the dawning break
Oh endless night
Sleepless I dream of the day.

When you were by my side
Guiding my path
Father, I can't find the way.

You promised you'd be there
Whenever I needed you
Whenever I call your name
You're not anywhere.

I'm trying to hold on
Just waiting to hear your voice
One word, just a word will do
To end this nightmare.

I know that the night must end
And that the sun will rise
And that the sun will rise.

I know that the clouds must clear
And that the sun will shine
And that the sun will shine.

I know that the night must end
And that the sun will rise
And that the sun will rise.

I know that the clouds must clear
And that the sun will shine
And that the sun will shine.

I know
Yes, I know
The sun will rise
Yes I know
I know
The clouds must clear.

I know that the night must end
I know that the sun will rise
And I'll hear your voice deep inside.

I know that the night must end
And that the clouds must clear.
The sun
The sun will rise
The sun
The sun will rise.
