I see a Darkness - Bonny Prince Billy (Will Oldham)

[Intro]
Well you're my friend
(It's what you told me)
And can you see
(What's inside of me?)

[Verse 1]
Many times we've been out drinking
And many times we've shared our thoughts
But did you ever, ever notice
The kind of thoughts I got?

[Verse 2]
Well you know I have a love
A love for everyone I know
And you know I have a drive
To live I won't let go

[Pre-Chorus]
Could you see it's opposition
Comes a-rising up sometimes
That it's dreadful imposition
Comes blackening my mind

[Chorus]
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And did you know how much I love you
Is a hope that somehow you you
Can save me from this darkness?

[Verse 3]
Well I hope that someday, buddy
We have peace in our lives
Together or apart
Alone or with our wives
That we can stop our whoring
And pull the smiles inside
And light it up forever
And never go to sleep
My best unbeaten brother
This isn't all I see

[Chorus]
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
And did you know how much I love you
Is a hope that somehow you you
Can save me from this darkness?
