The Dark Don't Hide It
Magnolia Electric Co. Lyrics


Something held me down and made me make a promise
That I wouldn't tell when the truth forgets about us
But saying it now comes easily
After finding out how you've been using me

[Repeat: x4]
At least the dark don't hide it

You said you only wanted friends for long enough
To get rid of them
You found the kind you knew would only kill you
So you surrounded yourself with them

[Repeat: x4]
At least the dark don't hide it

The world was empty on the day when they made it
But heaven needed someplace to throw all the shit
Human hearts and pain should never be separate
The wouldn't tear themselves apart both trying to fit

[Repeat: x4]
At least the dark don't hide it

Now death is going to hold us up in the mirror
And say we're so much alike we must be brothers
See I've had a job to do but people like you
Have been doing it for me to one another

[Repeat: x4]
At least I don't hide it

THE DARK DON'T HIDE IT (Lyrics)

Something held me down it made me make a promise
That I wouldn't tell if the truth forgets about us
Saying it now comes easily
After finding out how you've been using me

At least, the dark don't hide it, at least, the dark don't hide it
At least, the dark don't hide it, at least, the dark don't hide it

You only said you wanted friends

For long enough to get rid of them
You found the kind you knew would only kill you
So, you surrounded yourself with them

At least, the dark don't hide it, at least, the dark don't hide it
At least, the dark don't hide it, at least, the dark don't hide it

Now, the world was empty on the day when they made it
But heaven needed someplace to throw all the shit
Human hearts and pain should never be separate
They wouldn't tear themselves apart both trying to fit

At least, the dark don't hide it, at least, the dark don't hide it
At least, the dark don't hide it, at least, the dark don't hide it

Now, death is gonna hold us up in the mirror
And say we're so much alike, we must be brothers
See, I had a job to do, but people like you
Been doing it for me to one another

At least, I don't hide it, at least, I don't hide it
At least, I don't hide it, at least, I don't hide it

Went to Molina's memorial concert in Bloomington last night and it was 5 1/2 hours of his past and present bandmates trading off playing his music. What a beautiful experience!

This song came up on my Pandora and I instantly found it compelling. Maybe the best song I have heard in a long time. It is so sad to find a new to you artist and then find out he is already dead.

gro bennett

I had same thing happen. One of the most underrated artists Jason Molina. The saddest voice I’ve ever heard. Love the bands music and all of them are super talented

Lisa Prescott

That was my exact same experience with this song!

Barstool Blues

Love the Neil Young (electric side) vibe to this album.

Ariel concepcion

Lyrics are so beautiful accompanied by that damn bass, guitar, and beat...
I saw hem once live, shit was beautiful.

Ben O'Reilly

When the lyrics change from "at least the dark dont hide it" to "at least I don't hide it" during the last chorus section I get the chills. Truly amazing songwriting.

Christel Lundberg

Saw them in Malmö, Sweden the hot summer of 2005 3 PM and got lost. Love to hear them in the bathtub with a filled glass of melon liqueur!!!!
