I’ve still got the scars, that the sun didn’t heal

Sometimes my burden, is more than I can bear
[Outro]
She wrote me a letter, and she wrote it so kind
Feel like my soul has, turned into steel
And it’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

[Refrain]
I’ve followed the river, and I got to the sea
[Verse 1]
She put down in writing, what was in her mind
Don’t even hear a murmur of a prayer
Well, my sense of humanity, has gone down the drain
[Refrain]
Well, I’ve been to London, and I’ve been to gay Paris

Every nerve in my body, is so naked and numb
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there
[Verse 3]
It’s too hot to sleep, and time is running away
Every nerve in my body, is so naked and numb

I just don’t see why I should even care
I ain’t lookin for nothing, in anyone’s eyes
I know it looks like I’m moving, but I’m standing still
I can’t even remember what it was, I came here to get away from

[Verse 2]
Shadows are falling, and I’ve been here all day
There’s not even room enough, to be anywhere
[Refrain]

I was born here, and I’ll die here, against my will
Behind every beautiful thing, there’s been some kind of pain
[Verse 4]
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there
I’ve been down to the bottom, of a world full of lies
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there
And it’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there
