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?

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?

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)

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



I Provide Lyrics

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

[Verse 1]
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?

[Verse 2]
Well you know I have a love
For everyone I know
And you've seen I have this drive
To live I won't let go

[Pre-Chorus]
Could you see it's opposition
Comes a-rising up sometimes
That it's dreadful end-position
Comes blacking in my mind

[Chorus]
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
Is a hope that somehow you you
Can save me from this darkness?

[Verse 3]
Well I hope that someday, buddy
We've got 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

[Chorus]
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
Is a hope that somehow you 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.

floridahacker

@Steven Smith lol. You seem cool. You’re wife’s lucky enough with you, bud.

Steven Smith

@Geronimo 99 You're invited too, old Gerry.

Geronimo 99

So maybe you two could pursue something special with old Willy ?!

I discovered this song a few months ago. A short time after I started listening to it, a close friend of mine passed away unexpectedly. This song doesnt make me sad, but rather makes me happy and appreciate all the good times we had together albeit in a melancholy kind of way.

limnificant

What I love about this song is it's about how important friendship is for these two guys as they deal with depression, addiction, loss, whatever.

Seriously, is there any other song that deals with this theme so well?

Matte Frame

"Whoring" isn't the same as "whores"

Robert J. Williamson

Good point. I can't even think of a song that deals with that theme at all which is crazy considering how it is ubiquitous needing a friend to get through loss and dark times is.
"With A Little Help From My Friends" is the only song I can think of which is about friends helping you through. I've always thought it was about depression but then I suffer from depression, so I would think that...
"Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends"
and...
"What do you see when you turn out the light?
I can't tell you, but I know it's mine"

Mark O

"Did you know how much I love you is a hope that somehow you can save me from this darkness?" That's a bloody amazing line.

Schwarzes Eis

"is there any other song that deals with this theme so well?"
...or at all?

I could name a couple, except one of the friends there is a cat (who meant a lot to the songwriter, obviously). But if we are talking humans-only, I am at a loss.
