Roy Orbison – Darkness lyrics

Darkness, only darkness
Land of shadow
That's where my heart goes
Now I'm alone, I'm on my own

Voices, I hear voices
Sounds in the still night everywhere
But you're not there
No, you're not there

Imagination brings you so near
I reach for your lips, but they're not here
All of my memories are closing in as one
I walk a little faster, than I start to run

Darkness, only darkness
Land of shadow
That's where my heart goes
Now I'm alone, I'm on my own

I long to hold you, thrill to your charm
But how can I hold shadows in my arms?
I reach to find you, stumbling through the night
Searching in my sadness, looking for the light

But there's darkness, only darkness
Land of shadow
That's where my heart goes
Now I'm alone, I'm on my own
