American Darkness
Chelsea Wolfe Lyrics


When you come dead last
In battles long past
Intended to rip my heart out
Oracle of your secrets

Your eye was trained on me
As I stood before you, unbuttoning
Kiss me as the bell tolls
Swiftly, as the horses ride
Won't you dance
Won't you dance
Won't you dance
Won't you dance

Damn my dreams, the tormentors
Last night your mouth was on my skin
And the poppies were like fire on the mountain
I took your hand and led you home

All my old ways have started kickin' in
And my bad days are comin' round again
Left here in American darkness
River on fire, and sun eclipsed

Won't you dance
Won't you dance
Won't you dance
Won't you dance

'Cause I'm coming
'Cause I'm coming
'Cause I'm coming
'Cause I'm coming

When you come
When you come
When you come
When you come back to me

“And all my old ways have started kickin in,
And my bad days comin round again.”






I don’t know why but I love that part.
This song is amazing.
Didn’t even know there was a video for it until just now.
I like it.

“Light is the left hand of darkness
and darkness the right hand of light.
Two are one, life and death, lying
together like lovers in kemmer,
like hands joined together,
like the end and the way.”
― Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness

Great job Chelsea!

I like how she has a different style for every album. She didn't stick 100% with the lo-fi, industrial, electronic, or metal sounds for longer than she wanted to. I love artists who experiment with their music.

T E

You can actively see this through her catalogue. It's very similar to Gary Numan.

Eduardo

Hex Nigh is the New Day is a gem!! My all time wet dream is a Chelsea and Katatonia collab.

IVAN THE TEA

Очень приятный и расслабляющий трек.

Jan Buriak

So glad she's doing the southern gothic thing again. I loved her metal endeavors but I will forever love her softer side. Come to Poland, Miss Wolfe! We are waiting for you here!

christofyre

Everything she does is genius.

Jesús Robles

Finally someone who knows how to appreciate her art, and art in general. Let the artist be what he or she wants to be.

Seven Devils

Agreed. I also like when she dabbled into electronica with Pain Is Beauty.
