Black is Back

lyrics

Black is back--dark like the night
I cross my fingers and thumb through the Times
O Phantom Future, wild as a beast
Are you undaunted as the darkness falls and breaks?

I play my records and I top my drinks.
I write you letters across shining seas.
No tell, no tell--there's no telling.
From miles apart that's a hard look to read.
But your charm is everlasting.

It's you who puts the happy into my ness.
It's you who puts the heart back in my ache.
O and it's you who puts the question marks away.
And it's our love that shines like the Seigne.
O love, it puts us to shame.

I'm going out on a limb, below you see the sun.
I'm going out of my head wishing for once…

So maybe I'm crazy; this world is nakedly insane.
I shake like an earthquake when you call out my name.
O & I told, tonight's our lucky day.
"Well I may have no heart, but you've got no brains."
And I've got nothing 'cause you got away.

I'm going out on a limb, below you see the sun.
I'm going out of my head wishing for once…

I want to love her.
I want no other lover,
but she will never love me.

(Ah come home! ah come home, please)

O please, what 'cha say?
Who was the fool who choose our fate?

I want to love her.
I want no other lover,
but she will never love me.

Black is back--dark like the night
I cross my fingers as the Prophet dawn flickers on the sky.
