Darkness Falls

The Waltz (2004)

this new house
has burned to the ground
the siding and all
the wind picked up
lights have all gone down
and darkness falls
and darkness falls

he’s working hard in boston
and she says, “hammer away”
there she stands alone by the stove
there she stands an object
no one to hold

four in love is all that woman knows
three in love and now there’s
one heart of stone
none in love and the wind picked up
blew the life away
yeah, that’s how the story goes
when the darkness falls
and it was beautiful
