It Was Dark (When We First Kissed)

lyrics

I have a few things to my name
a desperation for the patron saint
a friend in Jesus and a question in faith
I have a few things to my name
it was dark when I first kissed your lips
unsure at first but we eased into it
my mama told me to watch out for this
it was dark when we first kissed

it’s just a matter of time, don’t look back now
you leave it behind then figure it out somehow
there’s a whole lot of love in a losing game
it’s just a matter of time before it slips away
there’s a whole lot of love in a losing game
the trick is to find it before it slips away

thrown out of a bar downtown
drinking too much and running my mouth
it takes a lot of blood just to straighten me out
thrown out of a bar downtown
that’s when I saw mary in the way you moved
bright light in a darkened room
couldn’t help but keep my eyes on you
I saw mary in the way you moved

it’s just a matter of time, don’t look back now
you leave it behind then figure it out somehow
there’s a whole lot of love in a losing game
it’s just a matter of time before it slips away
there’s a whole lot of love in a losing game
the trick is to find it before it slips away
