I woke up today with a darkness keeping me cold
Wild bird flocks guarding my home
I don’t know what to do
My eyes gone black from the stolen heart that I gave to you

Darkness keeps me all alone
Darkness eats away at the place that we’re calling our home

I went to bed on a starless night
I took the bus downtown in the morning light
And hung your ghost from the power lines
Your crooked mouth trying hard not to say goodbye
Saying ‘I won’t ask you’

Darkness keeps me all alone
Darkness eats away at the place that we’re calling our home

While you’re dreaming I can barely breathe
I tell you that I love you
But you don’t mean shit to me
It’s like we’re living in a fantasy
And I’m watching you try to pretend that you’re asleep
But I won’t wake you

I know a place where we can go tonight
Where we can trade all of our money for a homesick fade to white
You tell me that you never want to leave and you hang your body from the balcony and swing
Saying please just let me let go

Darkness keeps me all alone
Darkness eats away at the place that we’re calling our home
