I See A Darkness

This is a Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy song and it is sheer goodness…

Jay introduced it to me and we listen and love more because of this song. 

We thought of dancing our first marital dance to this song, but, well, we don’t want to scare Grandma.

It is a gritty, honest, and resounding song.

…I see your darkness and know how much I love you…

 

[FIRST VERSE:]

Well, you’re my friend

And can you see

Many times we’ve been out drinking

Many times we’ve shared our thoughts

Did you ever, ever notice, the kind of thoughts I got

Well you know I have a love, for everyone I know

And you know I have a drive, for life I won’t let go

But sometimes this opposition, comes rising up in me

This terrible imposition, comes blacking through my mind

[CHORUS:]

And then I see a darkness

Oh no, I see a darkness

Do you know how much I love you

Cause I’m hoping some day soon

You’ll save me from this darkness

[SECOND VERSE:]

Well I hope that someday soon

We’ll find peace in our lives

Together or apart

Alone or with our wives

And we can stop our whoring

And draw the smiles inside

And light it up forever

And never go to sleep

My best unbeaten brother

That isn’t all I see

[CHORUS:]

And then I see a darkness

Oh no, I see a darkness

Do you know how much I love you

Cause I’m hoping some day soon

You’ll save me from this darkness
