The Darkest One - Lyrics

Pin It Now!



Last played: 2003/08/01 Kelowna, BC

Notes: The Hip made a video for this song. I believe the Trailer Park Boys were in it. This song also appeared on Hipeponymous, a Greatest Hits/Fan's Choice release. I only mention this because they've only played the song 29 times live. Very similar to another song that's a fan fav and also on that compilation, Looking For A Place to Happen which itself has only appeared 25 times live. Weird.


Come in, come in, come in, come in
from under these darling skies come in
it's warm and it's safe here and almost harkening
off to a time and place now lost in our imagination

where you don't complain - but you still do
and you don't explain - but you still want to - explain
where you believe what you say without shame, 'I just do'
to say what you mean you don't mean what you say
- or you do

where the wild are strong
and the strong are the darkest ones
and you're the darkest one

Come in, come in, come in, come in
from thin and wicked prairie winds, come in
it's warm and it's safe here and almost heartening
here in a time and place not lost in our imagination

where you don't explain - but you still do
and you can complain - if you want to - complain
where you're real instrumental or supple
or sexy as hell
where you say 'I believe' or say without shame
'I can't tell'

where the wild are strong
and the strong are the darkest ones
and you're the darkest one
O' and you're the darkest one
and if that's what you want
O' then you're the darkest one



Next song: It's A Good Life If You Don't Weaken
Previous song: Use It Up
