Darkest Before Dawn

from Last Songs of Winter by Marc Farre



My friend
Don’t lose your mind
Lasts but a time
So hold on, here comes
A little song
Called darkest, darkest
Darkest before dawn

I know, I know
Life isn’t fair
I love, but I love
You anyway
And darkness, sweet darkness
Don’t be afraid
For darkness is just
Another word for shade

My friend, my friend
Don’t lose your mind
I know life can
Be so unkind
But hold on, just hold on
It won’t be long
‘Cause it’s darkest, darkest
Before the dawn

Darkest, darkest
Before the dawn
It’s darkest
Before the dawn

“In the company of European-influenced musicians like Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, and Nick Cave. A throaty voice, highly poetic lyrics and a kinetic band behind him. Compelling.”
