Baby, will you love me?
Child, will you hold me?
Will you lay beside me
At least most of the night?

Baby, you're magnificent
Child, you're intelligent
Honey, you could pay the rent
With that smile on your face

But this loneliness, it won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
Baby, you left and you didn't say why
Mostly darkness in my mind
Sometimes it leaves me, sometimes it leaves me behind

And maybe I can see you soon
Tell you all the things that I meant to
See you shinin' like the golden sun
Puttin' everyone to shame

I'll put my arms around you all night long, baby
I'll kiss you head to toe, I'll sing you a song, baby
I'll rock with you from side to side
I'll rock with you until the day we die

But this loneliness, it won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
Baby, you left and you didn't say why
Mostly darkness in my mind
Sometimes it leaves me, sometimes it leaves me behind

Darkness can't drive out darkness
Only love can do that, baby
Only love can do that

And this loneliness, it won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
Baby, you left and you didn't say why
Mostly darkness in my mind
Sometimes it leaves me, sometimes it leaves me behind

And baby, when things ain't right
You need someone to stay the night
I'll be there till the morning light
And longer if you need

    That is from Jimmy Cliff's "Many Rivers To Cross" from the soundtrack to "The Harder They Come."

    "And this loneliness won't leave me alone
    It's such a drag to be on your own
    My woman left me and she didn't say why
    Well I guess, I have to try"

    General CommentAlso, the darkness line is an altered Martin Luther King, Jr. quote:

    "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
