My Darker Side
Written by Matthew Ryan

I can't wait
Anymore
Her dress is off
And on the floor
My darker side
Has come to this
I walked the line
Until I slipped

Taxi please
Take me home
She's in the dark
And all alone
And I can't stand
A mercy killing
But I know what I am now
I'm the villain

But I'll say please
Honey please
Yeah I'll say please
Forgive me

The chariot
That I ride
In sheets of rain
And cherry light
And I recall
A promise made
In some other room
When I was brave
I close my eyes
I smell her skin
I'm at the door
The air is thin
The water's deep
The key is in
And I was supposed to be home hours ago
Yeah I was supposed to be home hours ago

So I'll say please
Honey please
Yeah I'll say please
Forgive me
Forgive me
