AnnA, one of the problems with trying to search out these lyrics is that there is nothing unique about them. There are thousands of songs to sift through that speak of "the darkest night" and "light your way" etc.. I'm afraid we have little to go on here unless you can remember something more or unless, by some coincidence, someone here happens to have heard the song in question. Be patient. This may take quite some time.

Hi Anna,

I tried searching using Google.com using various words and/or phrases from the lines you gave us. There are songs with the words "even in the darkest night" in them but they don't seem to be the right ones.

What style of music was it? Was it pop or rock or folk or Christian? Was it a solo singer or a band, male or female, etc? Where did you hear it - on the radio, and which station(s), on a record, live, etc?

We'll do what we can to help but please search your memory for more info.

Thanks
Helen

Allan/Helen

Thank you so much for trying.

The song was by a male singer. It was a love song in the era of Krystal Gale, Peabo Bryson an early days of Luther Vandross.

The part I remember is the chorus...

The verse goes something like
"Oh, sometimes, we shadow all the dreams we sleft behid
Though deep inside I know I'll carry on
And tonight .........
The way to higher ground.....
But love we
And hope will give you strength to carry on
While the night is blowing cold I'll be there to warm your heart...

something like that.....

Thank you

I too looooove this song. Taken me thru some rough patches. Anywho...I heard the song on radio and wrote down some of the words:

"You say, the world has broken down your heart again
No shelter strong enough to keep you safe
And moments seem like hours and you cannot stop the shower of tears
But love - will always bring a promise with the dawn
And hope will give you strength to carry on
W.....
My love

Cho
Even in the darkest night
There will be a light
That's gonna shine down on you
It's gonna light your way, through tha dark
Keep you safe and warm

Oh, sometimes the shadows cloud dreams you hold ...
Your reasons to be have been denied
.....
My love, so deep within the night I hear your call
Oh I'll be there before the teardrop falls
And your eyes will shine again before the day begins...

Cho"

Here's the rest of it. Enjoy!

You say, the world has broken down your heart again
No shelter strong enough to keep you safe
And moments seem like hours
And you cannot stop the shower of tears
But love - will always bring a promise with the dawn
And hope will give you strength to carry on
While the night is growing colder
I'll be there to rub your shoulder, my love

Cho
Even in the darkest night
There will be a light
That's gonna shine down on you
It's gonna light your way, through the storm
Keep you safe and warm

Oh, sometimes the shadows cloud the dreams you hold inside
Your reasons to be have been denied
When your world comes tumbling down
There's a way to higher ground for you
My love - so deep within the night I hear your call
Oh I'll be there before the teardrops fall
And your eyes will shine again
Just before the day begins, my love

The Whispers recorded a song called LIFE AND BREATH. It's on their album "Life and Breath" (1972). It contains these words:

"You are life and breath to me.
If you believe in dreams enough, then they'll believe in you.
That's what you used to tell me, so I know it must be true.
Day after day...."

However, the song is credited to George Clinton Jr.

It was also recorded by The Moments, Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, and a few others. I don't see that Ronnie Dyson had anything to do with it.

Thanks Jim, but you are incorrect. Ronnie Dyson wrote the song for The Whispers in 1972 and it never took off; so in 1974/1975 Ronnie recorded it for his album and it became a big hit for Ronnie

My information was from allmusic.com (which I should have said in the first place).

ASCAP.com also credits LIFE AND BREATH to George S Clinton, but it also says that "R Dyson" recorded it (among others).

LOVE this song!! Here's the correct lyrics

EVEN IN THE DARKEST NIGHT- RONNIE DYSON

You say, the world has broken down your heart today
No shelter strong enough to keep you safe
And the moments seems like hours                                  And you cannot stop the shower of tears                                                            
But love - will always bring a promise with the dawn
And hope will give you strength to carry on
While the night is growing cold
I'll be there to warm your soul, my love
Cho.
Even in the darkest night
There will be a light
That's gonna shine down on you
It's gonna light your way, through the storm
Keep you safe and warm                                                                  Oh even in the darkest night                                                                there will a light to make your world brand new                                                                   close your eyes sleep in peace tonight,(tonight)

Oh, sometimes the shadows cloud the dreams you hold inside
Your reasons to believe have been denied
When your world comes tumbling down                                                                  There's a way to higher ground for you                                                                     My love, so deep within the night I hear your call
Oh I'll be there before the teardrop falls
And your eyes will shine again just before the day begins
My love.......
Cho x2
