(Words and music by Graham Nash)

Into the darkness
Soon you'll be sinking
What are you doing?
What can you be thinking

All of your friends
Have been trying to warn you
That some of your demons
Are trying to drag you

Chorus
Away
Into the darkness
Into the darkness
Away

All of your life
You've been making your payments
Alone on the phone with
Your business arrangements

No wonder no-one
Could get near you
You're screaming too loud
No one can hear you

I see you coming
To the end of the day
And was it worth it?
No one can say

I see your face
It is ghostly pale
Into the sunset
We are watching you sail

Temperature's rising
Over the rainbow
What are you hiding?
Afraid of your shadow

We have been trying
Trying to find you
There's no use denying
Our love is behind you

Chorus
Stay
Out of the darkness
Out of the darkness
Stay
