I can watch little girl From the back of my car I see you and show At the place that you are Groceries spillin' up Out of your bag Thinkin' you'll end up A penniless hag
But I see the girl That you are deep inside Won't you allow me To give you a ride I can console you And give you kiss Show you that you can do Better than this
[Chorus] Angel girl In a cold dark world I'm gonna be your man Angel girl In a cold dark world I'll make you understand
I know That you're thinkin' I'm trying to score But deep in your heart You know that I'm more Than a cat or a scoundrel Now that I've found you I don't want to lose you How can I prove You know that I am sincere You don't need to fear I'm not like the others I'll be like a brother I will protect you Never disrespect you But if you love Then I'll be here To sex you
It might take awhile To get with the style Life at the end Of the miracle mile But you're gonna love The rising above All the trash That is sweeping You under the rug
I'm gonna be there

Rocky from Tulsa, Ok"Cold Dark World" is from Weezer's Red Album. This song is dark & ominous sounding, but the lyrics are light. Sounds like a Slavic dirge, but it works! The more I hear it, the more I love it. Plus, I think there are sounds of crows or ravens in the background that make this a bizarre & MACABRE delight. Perhaps they're RAVENS. It was co-written by Rivers Cuomo & Scott Shriner both of Weezer. Man, this song works. You just cannot ignore it on The Red Album. There are a lot of gems on the album but this song stands out because of the contrasts in sound and lyrics. And those ravens......oh those ravens! I'm gonna play this at my next Halloween Party! LOL.
Danny from Place, MaInteresting song. It would be cool if Weezer members other than Rivers got to sing lead vocals more.
