Went to the sea but the tide was out,
Stood on the shore, but the wind was cold,
Waited around till no ones’ about,
Thought of my spirit till my head took hold,

Looked in my heart but my heart was empty,
Looked to the ground but the road was long,
And now I’ve found my new salvation,
It’s so new the old one’s young

I’ve been waiting for the dark to come,
My temptation and salvation
I’ve been waiting for the tide to turn

Dark eyes become divine
I need the love I crave
You’re hands they burn like mine
I’ll take you to my grave

Dark eyes become divine
I need the love I crave
You’re hands they burn like mine
I’ll take you to my grave

I’ve been waiting for the dark to come,
My temptation and salvation
I’ve been waiting for the tide to turn

Dark eyes become divine
I need the love I crave
You’re hands they burn like mine
I’ll take you to my grave
I’ll take you to my grave

I’ve been waiting for the dark to come,
My temptation and salvation
I’ve been waiting for the tide to turn

Dark eyes become divine
I need the love I crave
You’re hands they burn like mine
I’ll take you to my grave
I’ll take you to my grave
