060 – Darkness (My Closest Friend)

I don’t want that darkness that hangs over me like a cloud
I don’t want that darkness that hangs over me like a shroud
The darkness that once was my closest friend
We met when our love affair came to an end

Hours forever we would spend up in my room
Steeped in our gloom
A game we shared, my partner in solitaire
Filled with despair we would sit in our chair deep in shade
A game of loneliness we forever played

We shared our hopeless moments together
We shared the sadness that bordered on madness
We shared our haunted memories
We shared our taunted reveries

It’s not easy to let go of someone you shared
Your darkest moments so
But when you start to dimly see that life is more
Then you thought it would be

You open your eyes and visualize that
Love was a lot more then you realized
You thank the darkness for being there
When no one else seemed to care
