Swing (Dawn Golden)

I woke up today with a darkness keeping me cold Wild bird flocks guarding my home I don't know what to do My eyes gone black from the stolen heart that I gave to you. Darkness keeps me all alone Darkness eats away at the place that we're calling our home. I went to bed on a starless night I took the bus downtown in the morning light And hung your ghost from the power lines Your crooked mouth trying hard not to say goodbye Saying 'I won't ask you' Darkness keeps me all alone Darkness eats away at the place that we're calling our home. While you're dreaming I can barley breathe I tell you that I love you but you don't mean shit to me It's like we're living in a fantasy And I'm watching you try to pretend that you're asleep But I won't wake you. I know a place where we can go tonight Where we can trade all of our money for a homesick fade to white. You tell me that you never want to leave And you hang your body form the balcony and swing. Saying please just let me let go. Darkness keeps me all alone Darkness eats away at the place that we're calling our home.
