  • I told you to be discreet
    But you enter the world and you broadcast me
    Trust is something you can't see
    But when it gets broken it cuts so deep

    Hope you're feeling super chic
    Since you made a joke out of me

    Here you come walking down the street
    With your fake sunshine
    Pouring down on me
    At least I can say I have a heart
    'Cause you broke it in two
    Now I'd rather be alone in the dark
    Yeah, I'd rather be alone in the dark

    Yesterday, we had no plans
    Just a map of the world in our hands
    Everything was you and me
    Now we're drifting along, in a bitter sea

    I can steer this boat on shore
    'Cause there is no us anymore

    Here you come walking down the street
    With your fake sunshine
    Pouring down on me
    At least I can say I have a heart
    'Cause you broke it in two
    Now I'd rather be alone in the dark
    Yeah, I'd rather be alone in the dark

    But I'll get over you
    If it's the last thing that I do
    I'll get over you

    Here you come walking down the street
    With your fake sunshine
    Pouring down on me
    Now there's a hole where there was a heart
    Oh, leave me alone
    'Cause I'd rather be alone in the dark
    Here you come walking down the street
    With your neon smile
    Flashing down on me
    Now there's a hole where there was a heart
    Oh, leave me alone
    'Cause I'd rather be alone in the dark
    Yeah, I'd rather be alone in the dark
    Yeah, I'd rather be alone in the dark
    'Cause I'm pretty happy here in the dark Writer/s: JEFFREY TROTT, SHERYL SUZANNE CROW
