I See a Darkness

I See a Darkness - Will Oldham -

Well, you’re my friend. That’s what you told me 
But can you see what’s inside of me 
Many times we’ve been out drinking 
And many times we’ve shared our thoughts 
But did you ever, ever notice the kinds of thoughts I got 

‘Cause you know I have a love for everyone I know 
And you’ve seen I have this drive to live I won’t let go 
But could you see its opposition is it comes rising up sometimes 
Sure, You must see it come blacking in my mind 
Well, I hope someday buddy we have peace in our lives 

I see a darkness
I see a darkness
I see a darkness
I see a darkness
Did you know how much I love you
It is a hope that somehow you would save me from this darkness 

Together or apart Alone or with our wives 
That we’ll 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-e-e-e 

Oh, no, I see a darkness
Oh, no, I see a darkness
Oh, no, I see a darkness
Oh, no, I see a darkness
Did you know how much I love you
It has been a hope that somehow you would have saved me from this darkness
