Darkness Oh Darkness

By happilydepressed

Darkness oh darkness my love where have you gone
Who keeps turning all the lights on

Where under the everlasting sunshine can my darkness hide
I'm homeless without it I have nowhere to reside

All the lights so bright have made me go blind
But it's not the same darkness I've left behind

A lousy cheap imitation
A lackluster reincarnation

I can't tell if I'm dreaming or awake
I don't feel like I'm in control of my own fate

So darkness oh darkness send your light so pale
Guide my path and lift the vail

Darkness oh darkness fall over me
Darkness oh darkness deliver me

In your cold deep depths I belong
Darkness oh darkness why do the days have to be so long

Darkness oh darkness oh how I love thee
So darkness oh darkness come set me free
