lyrics

Let me explain
You’ve been running through my mind all night
Just a memory of better times
Now I’m stuck inside an empty life

Let me be strange
Said some things that made you feel alone
Did some things that I shouldn’t have done
Help me now I’m on my own

And I can’t leave this behind

I saw a darkness, I saw a darkness
Oooh Oooh
I saw a darkness, I saw a darkness
Oooh Oooh

Send me away
To a place where I can’t be named
I’m floating in the strangest way
Help me find the words to say

Show me a way
A way back to where it began
It’s all slipping through my hands
Help me feel something again

And I can’t leave you behind

I saw a darkness, I saw a darkness
Oooh Oooh
I saw a darkness, I saw a darkness
Oooh Oooh

You pick me up from the bottom, I’m running from the devil and he won’t let me be
You pick me up from the bottom, I’m running from the devil and he won’t let me be

I saw a darkness, I saw a darkness
Oooh Oooh
Let me explain
I saw a darkness, I saw a darkness
Oooh Oooh
Let me explain
I saw a darkness, I saw a darkness
Oooh Oooh
Let me explain
I saw a darkness, I saw a darkness
Oooh Oooh
Let me explain
