Lyrics


The Darkest Star

Oh you sad one

Playing the angel

Isn't so easy where you're from


Oh you wild one

Devil's companion

You won't stay satisfied for long


I don't want you to change anything you do

I don't want you to be someone else for me


Oh you dark one

Eternal outsider

Caught in the spider's web you've spun


Oh you blind one

Gentle and kind one

Seeing the world as a loaded gun


I don't want you to change anything you do

I don't want you to be someone else for me


Stay as you are the darkest star

Shining for me

Majestically


I don't want you to change anything you do

I don't want you to be someone else for me
