Lost in the Darkness is a song that was written for the Alley Theatre Premiere of the show. It is sung by Dr Henry Jekyll to his sick father Albert.

The song was replaced in the 1994 Complete Works Gothic Musical Thriller album by I Need to Know, but that decision was reversed in the middle of the 1995 First National Tour and remained that way throughout the 1997 Broadway run. Most licensed productions now include both numbers.

Differences between versionsEdit

In the original iteration of the song, the show had two more verses, in which Jekyll becomes increasingly desperate, pleading to his father to show a sign he hears him 😀This was later cut.

Alley Theatre lyricsEdit

JEKYLL:
Lost in the darkness,
Silence surrounds you
Once there was morning,
Now endless night
If I could reach you,
I'd guide you and teach you
To walk from the darkness back into the light!

I look in your eyes, but I cannot find
The man I knew
You're so far away from me now
What is this demon,
Inside of you,
Pursuing you,
I must find the answer somehow

Show me your hear me
Please understand me
I'll keep on fighting, but you have to try

I'll never stop searching
I'll never desert you
I promise you this, til the day that I die.

(spoken)
Goodnight father.

JEKYLL:
Lost in the darkness,
Silence surrounds you
Once there was morning,
Now endless night
If I could reach you,
I'd guide you and teach you
To walk from the darkness back into the light!

Deep in your silence
Please try to hear me
I'll keep you near me, til night passes by

I will find the answer
I'll never desert you
I promise you this, til the day that I die.

(spoken)
Goodnight father.
