Track Name: Darkness in Me
You'll be my breath and I'll be your body
Nights like these who needs them both
Why did you wait for me, I wouldn't wait for you
If you did the things to me that I did to you

Down on your porch three in the morning
I'm playing you songs, you're telling me stories
About all the girls who have loved you since I've gone
A bold little number with a sweet melody
But every morning, she isn't me, the darkness in you, the darkness in me

I too have had others, who treated me better,
They come to my shows and write me long letters
Their hearts are as open and easy as a summer breeze
Your heart is so heavy, it just makes you mean
You'd hate California but I'd take you with me, the darkness in you, the darkness in me
