lifeblood: songs: lyrics: fine with the dark


all those metaphors
you learn in high school
dark and light
is wrong and right
it never made sense to me
here's what i can see

you can't see the stars if there's
too much light
ain't nothing like
holding you in the middle of the night
after getting burned
by the sun
in a hard day's work
baby
i'm fine with the dark

ain't nothing like a blackout
in new york city
all those lights just get
tired of looking pretty
i'm walking down broadway
here's what i can say

you can't see the stars if there's
too much light
ain't nothing like
holding you in the middle of the night
after getting burned
by the sun
in a hard day's work
baby
i'm fine with the dark

i tossed my coin in
to that wishing well
and jumped right in after it
as far as i could tell
that great void was
full of infinity
black as the fear of
endless posibilities
black as the moonless
woods of my unsung prayer
black as the velvet
elvis of my repair
black as the color
of my true love's hair

yeah well everybody's talking about that
great white light they
see in the end
if you lived right
i don't know about that
but i know what i need

you can't see the stars if there's
too much light
ain't nothing like
holding you in the middle of the night
after getting burned
by the sun
in a hard life's work
baby
i'm fine with the dark
baby
i'm fine with the dark
baby
i'm fine with the dark
