Well, you're my friend
(It's what you told me anyway)
And can you see
(What's inside of me anyway)

Many times we've been out drinking
And many times we've shared our thoughts
But did you ever, ever notice
The kind of thoughts I got

Well, you know I have a love
A love for everyone I know
And you know I have a drive
To live, I won't let go

Could you see its opposition
Comes rising up sometimes
That its dreadful anteposition
Comes blacking in my mind

(And) That I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness
And that I see a darkness

And did you know how much I love you
Here's a hope that somehow you
Can save me from this darkness

Well, I hope that someday, buddy
We have peace in our lives
Together or apart
Alone or with our wives

And we can stop our whoring
And pull the smiles inside
And light it up forever
And never go to sleep
My best unbeaten brother
This isn't all I see

Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness

Did you know how much I love you
Is a hope that somehow you, you
Can save me from this darkness
