Darkness

Lyrics and Music by Jonny Olsen

There is something that I saw
I saw in your eyes
But what I didn’t see
What I didn’t know
Became my demise
I could have sworn that you were calling
I think I knew that you were hurting
But you didn’t say anything
Because when you turn your back
Sometimes it lets you out
It lets you our of everything


Chorus
And the darkness came
To carry you away from me
And when the morning broke
It swept away the fantasy
Now there’s nothing left
But a whisper when I call your name
And as the evening fell
The candle dimmed
When the darkness came


The everlasting overcastting fog
Put a blanket on my mind
Every spoken word seemed so absurd
I wondered how you could be so unkind
You yelled and then you cried
And then you lied to me and said it was all justified
But in the end if you loved if you lost
It doesn’t matter, what maters is that you tried


Chorus
And the darkness came
To carry you away from me
And when the morning broke
It swept away the fantasy
Now there’s nothing left
But a whisper when I call your name
And as the evening fell
The candle dimmed
When the darkness came


Bridge
That night I felt the pain
And I wondered if it would ever come again
Then in the morning there is something that did remain
And it brightened my way when the darkness came
