Laura Marling – Darkness Descends lyrics

Your holding bits of styrofoam
With your face painted on to your friends
You listen to them whine and moan
About everything you can't understand
Can I just say I don't feel the light,
But darkness descends once more into my life

And suddenly we're all alone
In silence so I take a step away
I look up to the falling snow
As it makes it's home upon my face
Well I wouldn't want to ruin something I couldn't save
The gap will keep us safe, the gap will keep us safe

Step away, get me when I'm down

And suddenly I'm 5 years old
And I'm just so cold I want to cry
I haul up on my gentlemen
Who have always been there in hard times
They're just not like that man of mine
Who visits me from time to time

My love, I treasure you

I hear that summers coming back
So I stretch out my back and travel on
The winter though it darkens me
It is pure and clean and all I want
I'll apologize to the ones I love
For leaving them when the sun comes up

Too bright for me, darkens descends
Oh well I'm not well again and once more darkness it descends
The ground is falling under me
And I can't find the means to leave

Convinced that I am going mad
Oh I bury my head into his hands
So sure that I am losing faith
Oh I clear a space in his fathers land
You deal with god far too young,
Before you know it your life has run away
