Darkness Descends

Album: I Speak Because I Can (2010)
  • You're holding bits of styrofoam
    With your face painted on to your friends
    You listen to them whine and moan
    About everything you can't understand
    Can I just say I don't feel the light,
    But darkness descends once more into my life

    And suddenly we're all alone
    In silence so I take a step away
    I look up to the falling snow
    As it makes its home upon my face
    Well I wouldn't want to ruin something I couldn't save
    The gap will keep us safe, the gap will keep us safe

    Step away, get me when I'm down

    And suddenly I'm five years old
    And I'm just so cold I want to cry
    I haul up on my gentlemen
    Who have always been there in hard times
    They're just not like that man of mine
    Who visits me from time to time

    My love, I treasure you

    I hear that summers coming back
    So I stretch out my back and travel on
    The winter though it darkens me
    It is pure and clean and all I want
    Ill apologise to the ones I love
    For leaving them when the sun comes up

    Too bright for me, darkens descends
    Oh well I'm not well again and once more darkness it descends
    The ground is falling under me
    And I cant find the means to leave

    Convinced that I am going mad
    Oh I bury my head into his hands
    So sure that I am losing faith
    Oh I clear a space in his fathers land
    You deal with god far too young,
    Before you know it your life has run away Writer/s: LAURA BEATRICE MARLING
