It's gettin' dark in here, don't want to leave
Shadow's fallin' and I believe
Winds pickin' up thing's so unclear
I'm afraid of my shadow
And it's gettin' dark in here

I'm scared of strangers on the street
World's so ugly, I can't breath
Moon's so spooky, I'm close to tears
I've lost it all
And it's gettin' dark in here

And the wait isn't worth what I'm gettin'
Sometimes, I feel I'm on fire
I've been handed a curse and a blessing
My life's been stripped down to the wire

And I'm tryin' to get back and hold on
Find someone somewhere who cares
But the sun's always settin' on my life
And it's sure gettin' dark in here

Don't talk about angels or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward but I'm not that brave
Rags are blowin', rain's gettin' near
I'm done with running
And it's gettin' dark in here

And the wait isn't worth what I'm gettin'
Sometimes, I feel I'm on fire
I've been handed a curse and a blessing
My life's been stripped down to the wire

And I'm tryin' to get back and hold on
Find someone somewhere who cares
But the sun's always settin' on my life
And it's sure gettin' dark in here

And the wait isn't worth what I'm gettin'
Sometimes, I feel I'm on fire
I've been handed a curse and a blessing
My life's been stripped down to the wire

And I'm tryin' to get back and hold on
Find someone somewhere who cares
But the sun's always settin' on my life
And it's sure gettin' dark in here

Yeah, the sun's always settin' on my life
And it's sure gettin' dark in here
