Every night the same light shines
From your eyes and back to mine
With a vision of the love
We thought was true

But the darkness of the world out there
Surrounds the love we thought we shared
And it all fades back to black
'Tween me and you

But me and you were not to blame
Love always returns from where it came
Back to black and in the end
It's all the same

Now the darkness has slipped inside
But neither one of us can hide
Though you act for me
Just like I act for you

But when out two fates did cross
We should have both guessed the cost
That it all fades back to black
And nothing's new

But me and you were not to blame
Love always returns from where it came
Back to black and in the end
It's all the same

So if some mirror up on the wall
Reflected the love that we once saw
We could stand there forever
And never move

But love's picture in the glass
Fades away, it never lasts
It just all fades back to black
And nothing's true

But me and you were not to blame
Love always returns from where it came
Back to black and in the end
It's all the same

Back to black for me and you
Is back to blue
