Into the darkness we went, cold and tired
I cursed to Hell the chance we wouldn’t survive
We fled the arms of tyrants, violence and lies
And used the stars to map our way through the night

‘Cause honestly, we hadn’t the numbers
to walk the streets looking for trouble
Stuck to the dark, for the fear that they’d come
and tear us apart

With gentle steps and steady breaths we we’re quiet
Our hearts kept pounding like a thundering sky
Walk without shadows ‘cause the moon was a spy
and used the darkness to escape before light

‘Cause honestly, we hadn’t the numbers
to walk the streets looking for trouble
Stuck with the dark for the fear that they’d come
and tear us apart

Finally, it shows where the sun sets
and open seas crashing upon them
gave us away to commit our escape
and we left that place

And darling, we have traveled in wonder
I finally see the spell that we’re under
cast by your heart when we kissed in the dark
and we hid from it all
