Alone In The Dark
John Hiatt
It's a lonely picture
Of an empty glass
It's a still life study
Of a drunken ass
And he howls at the moon
Hoping the sun don't come up too fast
?
I'm all alone in the dark now baby
I'm all alone in the dark now baby
I'm all alone on my knees at last
Alone in the dark
?
It's extreme self pity
And frozen fear
'Cause I want you with me
And you're not here
So I rub my nose in it babe
'Til the roses smell just like death
?
I'm all alone in the dark now baby
I'm all alone in the dark now baby
I'm al alone and drawing whisky breath
Alone in the dark
?
My head is spinning baby what went wrong
I swear to God I tried
Just turned around one day and you were gone
Now these tears I have to cry
Alone in the dark baby, I'm all alone,
I'm all alone, I'm all alone
?
Since the night you left
I just couldn't stand myself anyway
?
I'm all alone in the dark now baby
I'm all alone in the dark now baby
I'm all alone on my knees at last
Alone in the dark
?
I'm all alone in the dark now baby
I'm all alone in the dark now baby
I'm all alone on my knees at last
Alone in the dark
