I See A Darkness

Album: American III: Solitary Man (2000)
  • Well, you're my friend
    And can you see
    Many times we've been out drinking
    Many times we've shared our thoughts
    But did you ever, ever notice
    The kind of thoughts I got?
    Well, you know I have a love
    A love for everyone I know
    And you know I have a drive
    To live, I won't let go
    But can you see this opposition
    Comes rising up sometimes?
    That it's dreadful imposition
    Comes blacking in my mind

    And then I see a darkness
    And then I see a darkness
    And then I see a darkness
    And then I see a darkness
    Did you know how much I love you?
    Is a hope that somehow you
    Can save me from this darkness

    Well, I hope that someday, buddy
    We have peace in our lives
    Together or apart
    Alone or with our wives
    And we can stop our whoring
    And pull the smiles inside
    And light it up forever
    And never go to sleep
    My best unbeaten brother
    This isn't all I see

    Oh no, I see a darkness
    Oh no, I see a darkness
    Oh no, I see a darkness
    Oh no, I see a darkness
    Did you know how much I love you?
    Is a hope that somehow you
    Can save me from this darkness Writer/s: Will Oldham
