In My Darkness Hour
Megadeth Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

In my hour of need,
Ha, no, you're not there
And though I reached out for you,
Wouldn't lend a hand

Through the darkest hour,
Your grace did not shine on me
Feels so cold, very cold,
No one cares for me

Did you ever think I get lonely?
Did you ever think that I needed love?
Did you ever think, stop thinking
You're the only one that I'm thinking of?

You'll never know how hard I tried
To find my space and satisfy you too

Things will be better when I'm dead and gone
Don't try to understand, knowing you, I'm probably wrong

But, oh how I lived my life for you,
Till you'd turn away
Now, as I die for you,
My flesh still crawls as I breathe your name
All these years, thought I was wrong,
Now I know it was you
Raise you head, raise your face, your eyes,
Tell me who you think you are?

I walk, I walk alone
To the promised land
There's a better place for me
But it's far, far away

Everlasting life for me
In a perfect world
But I got to die first,
Please God send me on my way

Time has a way of taking time
Loneliness is not only felt be fools
Alone, I call to ease the pain,
Yearning to be held by you
Alone, so alone, I'm lost,
Consumed by the pain
The pain, the pain, the pain
Won't you hold me again
You just laughed, ha-ha, you bitch

My whole life is work built on the past,




The time has come when all things shall pass,
This good thing passed away

Line by Line Meaning

In my hour of need,
During my difficult times,


Ha, no, you're not there
You're not present in my life


And though I reached out for you,
Despite my attempts to connect with you,


Wouldn't lend a hand
You refused to offer help


Through the darkest hour,
During my most trying time,


Your grace did not shine on me
I didn't receive your support or kindness


Feels so cold, very cold,
I feel isolated and unloved,


No one cares for me
I feel ignored and unimportant


Did you ever think I get lonely?
Have you ever considered that I feel lonely?


Did you ever think that I needed love?
Did you ever think that I crave affection?


Did you ever think, stop thinking
Maybe you should stop assuming


You're the only one that I'm thinking of?
I think only of you


You'll never know how hard I tried
You'll never understand how much effort I put in,


To find my space and satisfy you too
To balance my own needs with yours


Things will be better when I'm dead and gone
I believe my life will be better in death


Don't try to understand, knowing you, I'm probably wrong
It's pointless for you to try to comprehend, since you always think I'm mistaken.


But, oh how I lived my life for you,
I dedicated my life to you


Till you'd turn away
Until you rejected me


Now, as I die for you,
Now, as I suffer for you,


My flesh still crawls as I breathe your name
I recoil at the sound of your name


All these years, thought I was wrong,
For years, I believed I was mistaken,


Now I know it was you
Now I realize that it was you all along


Raise you head, raise your face, your eyes,
Look at me


Tell me who you think you are?
Explain your actions


I walk, I walk alone
I'm alone in my journey


To the promised land
To my ideal future


There's a better place for me
I envision a better life


But it's far, far away
But it's not easily attainable


Everlasting life for me
An eternal life awaits me


In a perfect world
In an ideal reality


But I got to die first,
But first, I have to die,


Please God send me on my way
God, I'm ready to depart


Time has a way of taking time
Time has a peculiar way of moving


Loneliness is not only felt be fools
Loneliness isn't exclusive to foolish people


Alone, I call to ease the pain,
I'm by myself, trying to alleviate the discomfort,


Yearning to be held by you
Desiring your comfort and touch


Alone, so alone, I'm lost,
I feel entirely alone and directionless


Consumed by the pain
Overwhelmed by the agony


The pain, the pain, the pain
Experiencing intense pain,


Won't you hold me again
Can't you comfort me one more time?


You just laughed, ha-ha, you bitch
You merely snickered, mocking me,


My whole life is work built on the past,
My life is an effort to overcome my past


The time has come when all things shall pass,
The moment has arrived for all things to end,


This good thing passed away
This positive aspect is now gone

In my hour of need
Ha, no, you're not there
And though I reached out for you
Wouldn't lend a hand

Through the darkest hour
Your grace did not shine on me
Feels so cold, very cold
No one cares for me

Did you ever think I get lonely?
Did you ever think that I needed love?
Did you ever think, stop thinking
You're the only one that I'm thinking of?

You'll never know how hard I tried
To find my space and satisfy you, too

Things will be better (better) when I'm dead and gone
Don't try to understand
Knowing you, I'm probably wrong

But oh, how I lived my life for you
Till you'd turn away
Now as I die for you
My flesh still crawls as I breathe your name

All there years, thought I was wrong
Now I know it was you
Raise your head, raise your face, your eyes
Tell me who you think you are?

I walk, I walk alone to the promised land
There's a better place for me
But it's far, far away

Everlasting life for me
In a perfect world
But I got to die first
Please God send me on my way

Time has a way of taking time
Loneliness is not only felt by fools
Alone, I call to ease the pain
Yearning to be held by you
Alone, so alone, I'm lost
Consumed by the pain

The pain, the pain, the pain
Won't you hold me again?
You just laughed, ha ha, you bitch!

My whole life is work built on the past
The time has come when all things shall pass
This good thing passed away
