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
