"Darker" as written by Jimi Goodwin, Andy Williams and Jez / Williams....
Bad snow freeze my throat
And numbs my soul
Eats me whole to pick me up
That's where you know
Free to go
You call the Jones
Makes me old before I'm old
Its all you love
Deep inside I know you love
The less I seem to know you love

Bad snow numbs my throat
And leaves me dry leaves me dry
Leaves me barely whole
Down to the wire
Rock gone cold
You caught a cold
Like so many times before its all you love
Deep inside I go you love
The less I seem to know you love

Here now deep inside I go
Here now

    General Commentawesome song. very chilling...
    I think perhaps the guy is comparing love to a snow storm, and how he's getting lost in it.
    YEAH! lets give it up for love!

    peace

    General CommentFor some reason when I listen to this song I think about a guy who's in love with a girl but she's only leading him on... He's trying to ignore the signs but he's "blinded by love" and when he does figures out he's hurt and cold. As the relationship continues it's darker as in less truthful or honest... One of my favorite songs of all times best to hear anytime of anyday. I agree with deadeyeduck it's very chilling but makes you crave to listen to it.

    General CommentTrue to the title, it is quite a bit darker than most of the uplifting Doves songs. It does sound like you caught a jones. Here's an alternate version, which I think works better. Oh, and there's a bit at the beginning which was missed in this version.

    Bad snow freeze my throat
    And numbs my soul
    Eats me whole to pick me up
    Thats where you know
    Free to go
    You call the jones
    Makes me old before I'm old
    Its all you love
    Deep inside I know you love
    The less I seem to know you love

    Bad snow numbs my throat
    And leaves me dry leaves me dry
    Leaves me barely whole
    Down to the wire
    Rock gone cold
    You caught a cold
    Like so many times before its all you love
    Deep inside I go you love
    The less I seem to know you love

    Here now deep inside I go
    Here now

    General CommentI'm just guessing, but it could have something to do with cocaine.

    General CommentIt sounds a lot like he's talking about drugs. "Snow," "jones," "freeze/numbs my throat," "leaves me dry..." Yeah... I think it's a song about drugs and addiction.

    General CommentWow, it's blasphemous that so little has been said about this song--this song wasn't the first Doves song I heard, but it was the song to get me into them. Anyway, definitely a song about drugs, I'm also guessing cocaine. No doubt about it.

    General CommentThis song is definitely referring to cocaine. Snow is another name for coke and the substance has numbing qualities.
