  • The one I love
    Is standing near
    The one I love
    Is everywhere
    I can woo you
    I can amuse you
    But there is nothing I can do to make you mine
    Black cloud, black cloud

    The one I love
    Roosts in the mind
    Can snap this spell
    Or increase hell
    I can chase you
    And I can catch you
    But there is nothing I can do to make you mine
    Black cloud, black cloud
    Oh, black cloud
    Oh, black cloud

    I play the game
    Of favorites now
    I can I must
    I will I do
    I can please you
    Or I can freeze you out
    But there is nothing I can do to make you mine
    Black cloud, black cloud, black cloud
    I can choke myself to please you
    And I can sink much lower than usual
    But there's nothing I can do
    To make you mine Writer/s: MARTIN JAMES BOORER, STEVEN MORRISSEY
