In the Dark
Josh Ritter Lyrics

We started looking for you
In the darker caves
We had a lot of love
We thought would light the way
We saw the wrecks of buildings
And ships that sank in starlight
We saw the ghosts of angels
That spoke of falls from tremendous heights

Don't you leave us in the dark [Repeat: x4]

We saw your old flames
And some were burning yet
It made us smile to see
Just how well tended each was kept
But other fires were burning too
And I saw the battlefields
The dying Light Brigade
Stretched out upon the wheel


Every heart is much the same
We tell ourselves down here
The same chambers fed by veins
The same maze of love and fear
We thought you were a saint
But the halo was an eye
It's hard to see how there could be
So much dark inside the light

I'd never heard of Josh Ritter until I went to his concerts, invited by a friend. I spent the beginning of the concert making fun of it with her, and we criticized everything. then he came on, turned off the lights and made it magical.


i think it's just beautiful... this voice is amazing and i've been looking for this song for quite a long time, heard it in TV and now i'm really happy i found it... just awesome...<3


He's so amazing live!

Nace Cohen

This is probably my favorite song.

T-Wray Combs

@prinzenrolle112 You should buy this CD if you don't have it. It's good from start to finish> This is how songs should be written!

Carol Jones

Josh is amazing.

Carlos Graça

The begging reminds me of Leaving in a Jet Plane (the version by Chantal Kreviazuk)

Guido Conrad
