"Hello Darkness" lyrics - RIC OCASEK

"Hello Darkness"

The perfect picture, paper doll dreams
Hazel windows in velveteen
Cadillac soul in the city heat
And jazzy silence at your feet

Hello darkness and goodbye sun
You're my only one

Holy clouds, playful light
So reluctant in silent flight
Fragile skin and stroking hands
Left in doubt with no demands

Hello darkness, you are my friend
Hold me till the end

Devil cats, so black and sleek
Walking down the alleyway, so hard to meet
Oh, sweet, sweet sensation, paradoxical dream
And curious creatures in between

Hello darkness, my last hotel
But it gets so hard
Yeah it gets so hard to tell

Hello darkness
Goodbye sun
