People are in the dark, they don't know what to do
Add a little lantern, oh but it got blown out, too
I'm reaching out my hands
I know you are, too
'Cause I just want to be in the dark with you

Every day, every night, all over my whole life through
Just let me be in the dark with you
Every day, every night, all over my whole life through

Every year what you hear goes from worse to worse
Some say the whole world suffers beneath a curse
I know less all the time
Kiss me 'fore I prove that's true
Just let me be in the dark with you

Every day, every night, all over my whole life through
I just want to be in the dark with you
Every day, every night, all over my whole life through

Ah, the people are in the dark, they don't know what to do
Add a little lantern, oh but it got blown out, too
I'm reaching out my hands
I know you are, too
'Cause I just want to be in the dark with you

Every day, every night, all over my whole life through
Just let me be in the dark with you
Every day, every night, all over my whole life through
Just let me be in the dark with you

    My InterpretationMaybe I'm reading too much into this album, but it seems that Greg Brown was dating a dark-skinned woman at the time.

    In "I Slept All Night By My Lover," he mentions touching her dark hand.

    In "Who Do You Think You're Fooling," he sings:

    Ain't gonna blow it up, ain't gonna mess it up
    There ain't no little babies gonna be born have a real hard time for the color of their skin
    Where they were born, why they were born
    Ain't gonna blow it up, ain't gonna mess it up
