Leonard Cohen

Darkness

I caught the darkness It was drinking from your cup I caught the darkness I'm drinking from your cup I said: Is this contagious? You said: Just drink it up I got no future I know my days are few The present's not that pleasant Just a lot of things to do I thought the past would last me But the darkness got that too I should have seen it coming It was right behind your eyes You were young and it was summer I just had to take a dive Winning you was easy But darkness was the prize I don't smoke no cigarette I don't drink no alcohol I ain't had much loving yet But that's always been your call Hey I don't miss it baby I got no taste for anything at all I used to love the rainbow And I used to love the view I loved the early morning I'd pretend that it was new But I caught the darkness baby And I got it worse than you I caught the darkness It was drinking from your cup I caught the darkness I'm drinking from your cup I said: Is this contagious? You said: Just drink it up
