The Gaslight Anthem – Dark Places lyrics

[Verse:]
If I thought it would help, I would drive this car into the sea
If the fire and smoke and explosions could speak for me
If the words that I used to try to explain how something inside of me started to break
I put one by one, my words just got in the way
How many nights did I crash against the waves with my head going under?
How many days did I spend trying to see it your way, if you try, you'd remember
I changed and changed and kept on saying
'One of these days, something inside's gonna break and we won't get it back now, baby'
(Something's gonna break)

[Chorus:]
And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart
(If I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart)
And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart
(If I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart)
All of the things that I tried to explain, how something inside of me started to break
We were living proof, one by one, we drifted away (one by one, we drifted away)
And time after time there were things that would scare me to tears, while you called me haunted
I paced around the bed where you laid
One of these days, maybe, something (something's gonna break)

[Interlude:]

[Chorus:]
And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart
(If I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart)
And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart
(If I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart)
And all of the things that I tried to explain, how something inside of me started to break
We were living proof, one by one, we drifted away
Away, hey, yeah
Drifted away, hey, yeah
One by one and day by day, I became the dark in the places where we lived
And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart
(If I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart)
And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart
(If I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart)
And all of the things that I tried to explain, how something inside of me started to break
We were living proof, one by one, we drifted away
