"It's Getting Dark" as written by and William Joseph Ricchini....
And so I’m leaving here today
No, I’m not sure just where I’m going
Burn out and watch it fade away
I miss the comfort of no knowing

Like running standing in one place
A paper crown made for a child king
The truth can slap you in the face
Then slip off like a loose wedding ring

When I told, told, told you a lie, lie, lie
I just wanted to be where you are
And you told, told me if I try, try, try
You could help me see in the dark
It’s getting dark (x4)

And so I’m giving up this fight
This mountain I could not stop climbing
You are an echo in the night
A cloud without a silver lining

Please tell my papa that I tried
And tell my darling that I love her
But something deep inside me died
And follows hovering above her

When I sold, sold, sold you a lie, lie, lie
I just wanted to be where you are
And you told, told me if I try, try, try
You could help me see in the dark

When I sold, sold, sold you a lie, lie, lie
I just wanted to be where you are
And you told, told me if I try, try, try
You could help me see in the dark
It’s getting dark (x4)
