Henry Jamison Darkly Lyrics

Turn on the light in the hotel room

On the rarefied air that she moves through

Playin’ a game of Who’s Leaving Who

Are you leaving me if I’m not leaving you?

Uh huh

Venus wades into the sea above her sways infinity

A heroic supernova’s seen burning bright in the canopy

Darkly, we see

And though I hope to be a better man we all fall down

That panting, animal intimacy

When the thermometer reads 95 degrees we sweat and pray all afternoon

That the storm clouds come, that the heat break soon

Oh mercurial Mercury, crossing all our boundaries

A far cry from the hotel room, with its air-conditioned, committee’d gloom

Ah I wish that I could see the boy

Who would find your fine house and destroy

And on some winsome winter day

I’d turn to you and I would say

Darkly, we see

And though I hope to be a better man

We all fall down

Darkly, we see

At first in part and then in full

We open our eyes
