...Darkness

Renowned for their live performances, the Irish rock band the Saw Doctors did not disappoint the crowd at PCMH last night. For two hours straight, the high energy band rocked out favorite after favorite. And they have a softer side too. I love this one. Perfect for the evening.

Share the Darkness
Hey I can't I say that I love you
I can't say that I don't
I can't say that I couldn't
And I won't say that I won't
But I really like your company
I'm enjoying myself no end
But I can't keep from thinking
Why don't we share the darkness tonight
Make it warm and burning bright
I'll not say nothing
I'll be polite
Why don't we share the darkness tonight

Ah life's too short for wasting
For ifs and might have been's
Life's too short for wondering if
You could have lived your dreams
And its way too short for loneliness
We don't have to be

Now that we trust each other
Why don't you stay with me?
Why don't we share the darkness tonight
Make it warm and burning bright
I'll not say nothing
I'll be polite
Why don't we share the darkness tonight

When the world belongs to distant dogs
And the air is dark and still
And drunken conversations pass
beneath the window sill
And there's someone singing
Elvis songs as they make their way back home
and all your fears and worries
attack when you're alone
when you're alone, when you're
alone, when you're alone
Why don't we share the darkness tonight
Make it warm and burning bright
I'll not say nothing
I'll be polite
Why don't we share the darkness tonight
Why don't we share the darkness tonight
