Lyrics

Darkness

The setting sun draws shadows like a web across the field
As the dying days of summer lie back as if to yield
To the gentle push of autumn to the cold breath of this change
And I’m walking down this well worn path carrying my shame
And darkness falls so hard

The horizon is on fire like the smolder in my heart
And my thoughts they fizz with static as they have done from the start
It seems breathing is a luxury and sleeping is a gift
And I’ve bartered peace and honor for the tangle of a kiss
And darkness falls so hard

And when the new day dawns what will I see?
When I’ve given everything away that matters most to me
And I will not be forgiven as I step into the fire
With my burning arms wide open undone by this desire

But the wreckage smothers the flames
And the embers start to die
The guilt just spreads the ashes
As they swirl into the sky

Darkness darkness find me hide me
Wrap me shroud me smooth the ragged edge of misery
Darkness darkness find me hide me
Lift me hold me subsume the bitter light and save me

Stumbling through the darkness try to find a way back home
With my tattered heart in pieces and a conscience like a stone
But I kept my eyes wide open as I walked into the flames
Now I will not find redemption and there’s only me to blame
And darkness falls so hard

And when the new day dawns what will I see?
When I’ve given everything away that matters most to me
And I will not be forgiven and I’ll never have the right
To pretend I didn’t have a hand in drawing down the night.

Come take me darkness
Come on hide me from this shame
Obscure my face my memory
And take away the pain

And now darkness darkness find me hide me
Wrap me shroud me smooth the ragged edge of misery
Darkness darkness find me hide me
Lift me hold me subsume the bitter light and save me
Darkness darkness find me hide me
Wrap me shroud me mend a broken life and save me
