Darkness Descends Lyrics

Darkness Descends - Laura Marling

You're holding bits of Styrofoam

With your face painted on to your friends


You listen to them whine and moan

About everything you can't understand


Can I just say I don't fear the light


But darkness descends once more into my life


And suddenly we're all alone in silence

So I take a step away


I look up to the falling snow

As it makes its home upon my face


Well I wouldn't want to ruin

Something I couldn't save

The gap will keep us safe the gap will keep us safe


Step away get me when I'm down


And suddenly I'm five years old

And I'm just so cold I want to cry


I haul up on my gentlemen

Who have always been there in hard times


They're just not like that man of mine

Who visit me from time to time


My love I treasure you


I hear that summer's coming back

So I stretch out my back and travel a long


The winter though it darkens me

It is pure and clean and all I want


I'll apologize to the ones I love

For leaving them when the sun comes up


Too bright for me darkness descends


Oh well I'm not well again

And once more darkness it descends

The ground is falling under me

And I can't find the means to leave


Convinced that I am going mad

Oh I bury my head into his hands


So sure that I'm losing faith

Oh I clear a space in his father's land


You deal with God far too young


Before you know it your life has run away
