In The Darkest Place

This song is by Elvis Costello With Burt Bacharach and appears on the album Painted From Memory: The New Songs Of Bacharach & Costello (1998).


In the darkest place
I know that is where you'll find me
Even though you didn't have to remind me
I shut out the lights

Your eyes adjust
They'll never be the same
You know I love you so
Let's start again

Since you put me down
It seems I've been very gloomy
You may laugh
But pretty girls look right through me

They don't sense the faintest glimmering
That is the torch I bear
There's light enough for me to find my way

But I only have to tell myself that by now
You could be with someone else
Is there light beneath your door and
Laughter from within?

Do your friends come around
Saying, "Try to find another lover."?
He won't love you like I do

In the darkest place
I'm lost, I have abandoned every hope
Maybe you'll understand I must
Shut out the light

Your eyes adjust
They'll never be the same
You know I love you so
Let's start again

Do your friends come around
Saying, "Try to find another lover."?
He won't love you like I do

(In the darkest place)
That is where you'll find me
In the darkest place
That is where you'll find me
