Artist/Band: Indigo Girls
Lyrics for Song: Prince Of Darkness
Lyrics for Album: Back on the Bus, Y'all [1991]



My place is of the sun and

This place is of the dark (and I)

I do not feel the romance

I do not catch the spark (x2)



I don't know when I noticed life was life at my expense

The words of my heart lined up like prisoners on a fence

The dreams came in like needy children tugging at my sleeve

I said I have no way of feeding you so leave

But there was a time I asked my father for a dollar

And he gave it a ten dollar raise

When I needed my mother and I called her

She stayed with me for days (days)



Now someone's on the telephone,

Desperate in his pain

Someone's on the bathroom floor

Doing her cocaine

Someone's got his finger on the button in some room

No one can convince me we aren't gluttons for our doom



But I tried to make this place my place

I asked for Providence to smile upon me with His sweet face

Yeah but I'll tell you...



My place is of the sun and

This place is of the dark (and I)

I do not feel the romance

I do not catch the spark

My place is of the sun and this place is of the dark

And I do not feel the romance, I will not be...

(By grace, my sight grows stronger and I will not Be a Pawn

For the Prince of Darkness any longer)



Maybe there's no haven in this world for tender age

My heart beat like the wings of wild birds in a cage

My greatest hope my greatest cause to grieve

And my heart flew from its cage and it bled upon my sleeve

The cries of passion were like wounds that needed healing

I couldn't hear them for the thunder

I was half the naked distance between hell and heaven's ceiling

And he almost pulled me under (under)



Now someone's on the telephone,

Desperate in his pain

Someone's on the bathroom floor

Doing her cocaine

Someone's got his finger on the button in some room

No one can convince me we aren't gluttons for our doom



But I tried to make this place my place

I asked for Providence to smile upon me with His sweet face

Yeah but I'll tell you...



My place is of the sun and

This place is of the dark (and I)

I do not feel the romance

I do not catch the spark

My place is of the sun and this place is of the dark

And I do not feel the romance, I will not be...

(By grace, my sight grows stronger and I will not Be a Pawn

For the Prince of Darkness any longer)
