Palo Santo

Album: Palo Santo (2018)
  • You're the darkness in me

    I
    I'm weighting spirits tonight
    And I can't hear your voice
    I got nothing to hide
    'Cause you're with another boy
    And I'm carving the sky
    I'm having visions manifesting us in time
    So I arrive from the coast
    I've got three more days
    I know you want me the most
    Want me in an altered state
    I've been sleeping with ghosts
    And I swallow medication
    You should know

    Strike a match and whisper my name (burning, burning)
    Speak in tongues, bend me 'til I break (running, running)

    And I'm giving in to your fever touch
    Let it all begin when the fire starts
    You're the darkness in me, Palo Santo
    And the memories are filling up with smoke
    You'll remember me and I start to choke
    You're the darkness in me, Palo Santo
    (Burning, burning)
    Burning, burning

    There's a mark on my skin
    Make you hot with shame
    'Cause I'm in love with the sin
    And I know how to take the blame
    And I let you win
    Do I look good in this position, just like him?

    Strike a match and whisper my name (burning, burning)
    Speak in tongues, bend me 'til I break (running, running)

    And I'm giving in to your fever touch
    Let it all begin when the fire starts
    You're the darkness in me, Palo Santo
    And the memories are filling up with smoke
    You'll remember me and I start to choke
    You're the darkness in me, Palo Santo

    I want, I want, I want all the danger
    Come on, come on, come on keep me craving
    This sweet intoxication shakes my soul
    I want, I want, I want entertainment
    Come on, come on, come on keep me craving
    This sweet intoxication shakes my soul (my soul)

    And I'm giving in to your fever touch
    Let it all begin when the fire starts
    You're the darkness in me, Palo Santo (Palo Santo)
    And the memories are filling up with smoke
    You'll remember me and I start to choke
    You're the darkness in me, Palo Santo

    You're, you're the darkness
    You're, you're the darkness
    You are the darkness in me, Palo Santo
    Oh
    You're, you're the darkness (you are, you are)
    You're, you're the darkness (you are)
    You are the darkness in me, Palo Santo Writer/s: Oliver Alexander, Sarah Theresa Hudson
