love is blindness
I don't want to see
won't you wrap the night
around me?
oh, my heart
love is blindness

in a parked car
in a crowded street
you see your love
made complete
thread is ripping
the knot is slipping
love is blindness

love is clockworks
and cold steel
fingers too numb to feel
squeeze the handle
blow out the candle
love is blindness

love is blindness
I don't want to see
won't you wrap the night
around me?
oh, my love
blindness

a little death
without mourning
no call
and no warning
a dangerous idea
that almost makes sense

love is drowning
in a deep well
all the secrets
and no one to tell
take the money, honey
blindness

love is blindness
I don't want to see
won't you wrap the night
around me?
oh, my love
blindness

    General CommentThis is a U2 cover. I don't know how anyone could not know that, but I'm just throwing it out there. Well done, though not quite as good as the Cassandra Wilson version. I recommend it highly.
