You're So Dark

Album: One For The Road (2013)
  • You got your H.P. Lovecraft
    Your Edgar Allan Poe
    You got your unkind of ravens
    And your murder of crows
    Catty eyelashes and your Dracula cape
    Been flashing triple A passes
    At the cemetary gates

    Cause you're so dark, babe
    But I want you hard
    You're so dark, babe
    You're so dark
    You're so dark
    You're so dark

    And you're so mysterious
    Got that obsession with death
    I saw your driving your Prius
    And even that was Munster Koach-esque
    You watch Italian horror and you listen to the scores
    Leather-clad and spike collar
    I want you down on all fours

    Cause you're so dark, babe
    But I want you hard
    You're so dark, babe

    I know you're nothing like mine
    Cause she's walking on sunshine
    And your love would tear us apart
    And I know I'm not your type
    Cause I don't shun the daylight
    But baby I'm willing to start

    You're so dark

    Got your H.P. Lovecraft
    Your Edgar Allen Poe
    Got your unkind of ravens
    Got your murder of crows

    You're so dark, babe
    But I want you hard
    You're so dark, baby
    But I want you hard
    You're so dark, oh
    But I want you hard
    You're so dark, baby Writer/s: ALEX TURNER
