Darkness, Darkness - The Youngbloods/Ian Matthews/Eric Burdon

  
Darkness, Darkness
Darkness, darkness
Be my pillow
Take my head
And let me sleep
In the coolness of your shadow
In the silence of your deep

Darkness, darkness
Hide my yearning
For the things I cannot be
Keep my mind from constant turning
Toward the things I cannot see now
Things I cannot see now
Things I cannot see

Darkness, darkness,
Long and lonesome,
Ease the day that brings me pain.
I have felt the edge of sadness,
I have known the depths of fear.

Darkness, darkness, be my blanket,
Cover me with the endless night,
Take away, take away the pain of knowing,
Fill this emptiness with light now,
Emptiness with light now, now, now
Emptiness with light now.

Darkness, darkness, be my pillow,
Take my hand, and let me sleep.
In the coolness of your shadow,
In the silence, the silence of your deep.

Darkness, darkness, be my blanket,
Cover me with the endless night,
Take away, take away the pain of knowing
Fill the emptiness with light now,
Emptiness with light now, now, now
Emptiness with light....
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah
Emptiness, emptiness
Oh, yeah
