I Will Follow You Into The Dark
Amy Millan Lyrics


Love of mine
Someday you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark

No blinding light
Or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark
If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NO's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school
As vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me
"Son, fear is the heart of love"
So I never went back

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NO's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

You and me
Have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes
Are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
It's nothing to cry about
'Cause we'll hold each other soon
In the blackest of rooms

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NO's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark
Then I'll follow you into the dark

Guys, I'm pretty sure her intention/arrangement of this cover wasn't to "miss the tone". It has "tone", she simply made it her own. The best covers (at least in my opinion) aren't gauged by the original but instead, the artist's feels for personal direction of whatever they're covering. This is sweet and you can't deny that if you're ears, mind, and heart are open to new ideas.

By now I think I like this version better then original. Simply wonderful. Both her albums are gems.

Matt Crossman

This is lovely.

Ahhh, being English I don't really appreciate the country tone this cover takes. That said I don't think we English appreciate much.

Justin Goulet

This is a fantastic cover! I've covered this tune before but this one really brings something different to the table. Love the folk-y, western-y feel to it. Awesome!

I love the western sound in this song! Kind of folk-ish, and it's not too modern sounding western. Just lovely..
