Lyrics

Darkling, Listen 

Darkling, listen 
For many a time 
I have been half in love with easeful death 

My heart is aching, drowsy numbness pains 
My sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk 
Or emptied some dull opiate to drain 
One minute past and Lethe-wards had sunk 
Darkling, listen 
For I will fly to thee 

Where youth grows pale and spectre thin and dies 
Where but to think is to be full of sorrow 
Where beauty cannot keep her lustrous eyes 
Or new love pine at them beyond tomorrow 
Darkling, listen 
For I will fly to thee 

I cannot see what flowers are at my feet 
Nor what soft incense hangs upon the boughs 
You make me beg or crawl upon my knees 
Just for a taste, a decadent perusal 
Darkling, listen 
For I will fly to thee
