Lyrics

ON A VERY DARK DAY
(Papageorge)

Where do I go when I've got no one to talk to
Out here where the sky is turning gray?
Why does it feel like everywhere I walk to
Ends up with me always losing my way?
How long must I go on trying
Keeping all my demons away?
ON A VERY DARK DAY?

I can see there are crows crowding the sunshine
I believe they're heading right for me
Don't feel much like fighting them off this time
I only want to end this misery
Oh, Lord, I hope that you can hear me
Only you can help me escape
ON A VERY DARK DAY

Tell my brother, Theo, I will miss him
Tell the other people if they care
I had only wanted assist them
By showing there is beauty everywhere
Oh, how I tried to make it happen
Now I don't want to stay
ON A VERY DARK DAY
ON A VERY DARK DAY
It's A VERY DARK DAY
