I See a Darkness
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy Lyrics


Well you're my friend
(It's what you told me)
And can you see
(What's inside of me?)

Many times
We've been out drinking
And many times
We've shared our thoughts

But did you ever, ever notice
The kind of thoughts I got?

Well you know I have a love
A love for everyone I know
And you know I have a drive
To live I won't let go

But could you see it's opposition
Comes a-rising up sometimes
That it's dreadful and position
Comes blacking in my mind

And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And did you know how much I love you (and that I see a darkness)
Is a hope that somehow you (and that I see a darkness)
Can save me from this darkness?

Well I hope that someday, buddy
We have peace in our lives
Together or apart
Alone or with our wives
That we can stop our whoring
And pull the smiles inside
And light it up forever
And never go to sleep
My best unbeaten brother
This isn't all I see

Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
And did you know how much I love you (and that I see a darkness)
Is a hope that somehow you, you (and that I see a darkness)
Can save me from this darkness?

Letra
Bueno tu eres mi amigo
(Es lo que me dijiste )
Y puedes ver
(Que hay dentro de mi? )

Muchas veces hemos estado afuera bebiendo
Y muchas veces hemos compartido nuestros pensamientos
Pero tu alguna vez te diste cuenta
El tipo de pensamientos que tengo?

Bueno tu sabes que tengo un amor
Un amor por todos a quien conozco
Y sabes que tengo que recorrer
Para vivir, no lo dejare ir

Podrías ver su oposición
Viene saliendo a veces
Que es terrible y posición
Viene a oscurecer mi mente

Y que veo una oscuridad
Y que veo una oscuridad
Y que veo una oscuridad
Y que veo una oscuridad
Y sabias cuanto te amo
Es una esperanza que de alguna forma tu
Puedes salvarme de esta oscuridad?

Bueno espero que algún día, amigo
Tengamos paz en nuestras vidas
Juntos o aparte
Solos o con nuestras esposas
Para que podamos parar nuestra infidelidad
Y sacar las sonrisas dentro
Y encenderla por siempre
Y nunca ir a dormir
Mi mejor hermano invicto
Esto no es todo lo que veo

Y que veo una oscuridad
Y que veo una oscuridad
Y que veo una oscuridad
Y que veo una oscuridad
Y sabias cuanto te amo
Es una esperanza que de alguna forma tu
Puedes salvarme de esta oscuridad?

Aquí va la letra Charlie, Dano y para mi tata



Edgar Channels

Bueno, tú eres mi amigo (Eso es lo que dijiste)
Y puedes ver (lo que hay dentro)
Muchas veces hemos salido a tomar
muchas veces hemos compartido nuestros pensamientos

¿Te has dado cuenta la clase de pensamientos que tengo?
Bueno, sabes que tengo un amor
un amor por cada persona que conozco
y sabes que tengo unas ganas
de vivir, no me voy a rendir

¿Pero lo único que puedes ver es contrariedad surgiendo a veces?
Esta terrible imposición
ennegreciendo mi mente...

Y entonces veo oscuridad,
Y entonces veo oscuridad,
Y entonces veo oscuridad,
Y entonces veo oscuridad,
¿Sabías cuánto te quería?
¿Hay alguna esperanza que de alguna manera...
...me puedas salvar de esta oscuridad?

Bueno amigo, espero que algún día
tengamos paz en nuestras vidas
juntos o separados
solos o con nuestras esposas
y podemos parar las tristezas
y sacar las sonrisas de adentro
y que la luz se encienda por siempre
y que nunca más se apague
Mi mejor amigo e imbatible hermano
es no es todo lo que veo...

Oh no, veo oscuridad,
Oh no, veo oscuridad,
Oh no, veo oscuridad,
Oh no, veo oscuridad,
¿Sabías cuánto te quería?
¿Hay alguna esperanza que de alguna manera...
...me puedas salvar de esta oscuridad?

Well, you're my friend
And can you see
Many times, we've been out drinkin'
Many times we shared our thoughts
But did you ever, ever notice
The kind of thoughts I got?
Well, you know I have a love
A love for everyone I know
And you know I have the drive
To live, I won't let go
But can you see its opposition
Comes rising up sometimes?
That it's dreadful imposition
Comes blacking in my mind?
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
Did you know how much I love you?
Here's a hope that somehow you
Can save me from this darkness
Well, I hope that someday, buddy
We have peace in our lives
Together or apart
Alone or with our wives
And we can stop our whoring
And pull the smiles inside
And light it up forever
And never go to sleep
My best unbeaten brother
This isn't all I see
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Did you know how much I love you?
Here's a hope that somehow you
Can save me from this darkness

Astounding in every way. My wife went to high school with Will Oldham. She's always said he's way beyond cool. I just thought she had a crush on him. Turns out, I can't blame her.

Martin Schwoerer

@Cogitavi this is slander, pure and simple. I know his neighbor. I saw him in concert two weeks ago. If Karma is a thing, you're in for some interesting times, buddy.

Roland Sievers

@Cogitavi I think you're confusing him with Oscar Wilde...

Neilis

Him, Elvis and I just got tacos in Montreal last week. All doing well.

Joshua Walker

I did heroin with him last week and he showed me his videos

Steven Smith

I guess so. She talked about about those guys when we visited a photo exhibit at U of L a few years back. There was a photo of them swimming in an old stone quarry.

Really an absolutely miraculous reimagining of one of the bleakest songs ever written, just by upping the tempo, adding some drums and a couple backing vocals. What before was the distilled essence of forlorn and lonely has been transubstantiated into divinely hopeful, warm and redemptive.

@Ian Barkham this is the original: https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=YmFynsUrSz0&feature=share

@max k it has drums, just much more subdued: https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=YmFynsUrSz0&feature=share
