Notes

“Darkness Keeps Chasing Me was actually just kind of like an add on song. That wasn’t even my first song of that day. It was just kind of – oh, I’m here, so we might as well do another one, and it actually ended up being really beautiful, and I kept it on the album. It was originally with the guitar, but then we thought it sounded really pretty with a slide guitar, just because it brought, I don’t know, homey feels of it, homey, lost feels to it.” (Behind the song video, released Dec. 18, 2017)

Lyrics

Opening my eyes seems like it gets harder sometimes
Look at the skylight,
would you be mad at me if I tried running away to it in the night

I tried to fight,
but I’m not strong enough I just want you here
but I also want to be alone
I don’t know what I want anymore

Every now and then the darkness tries to chase me
And my legs are getting tired of running ooh
Please don’t Please don’t Let it get to me,
ohh
I don’t want to give up that easily
But the darkness keeps chasing me,
me

Hiding places remind me of you and I
I want to call you, but if I hear your voice I just might cry
And I don’t even know, what this song’s about anymore
And I don’t know what I want anymore

Every now and then the darkness tries to chase me
And my legs are getting tired of running
Ohh
Please don’t Please don’t Let it get to me,
ohhh
I don’t want to give up that easily
But the darkness keeps chasing

River streams down my cheeks, I look to my right, see you blowing smoke in your ripped jeans

Don’t tell me you fell in, the darkness is already seeping through, oh can’t you see

I will be different, but I’m not sure if I can do it all alone
God I want to be different but I’m not sure if I can do it on my own

‘Cause every now and then the darkness tries to chase me
And my legs are getting tired of running
No no no no
Please don’t
Please don’t Let it get to me, oohh
I don’t want to give up that easily
But the darkness keeps chasing me, me, me, me
