The Dark
daniel zaitchik, 2006

lyrics

turn out the light, you're mine so go and turn it out
our mouths ignite the only shine we'll need tonight
turn out the moon, turn out her lucent heirlooms
this patch of land's our continent and bedroom

let me undo the careful conscious shoulders
let me remove your shoes and filed folders
honey let go the soldier and the lancer
the day is done so look to tongues for answers

the day is done, look: a tongue, a tongue
look: a tongue, a tongue's got answers . . .

la da da da . . .

turn out the light you're home so go and turn it out
our skin recites the only poem we'll need tonight
turn out the moon-faced mantel's lambent heirlooms
this patch of land's our continent, our continent

turn it out, turn it out . . .

let me undo the careful conscious shoulders
let me remove your shoes and filed folders
you'll never find, you'll never find the answer
so close the book and look my tongue's a dancer

close the book and look: my tongue, my tongue
look: my tongue, my tongue's a dancer . . .

la da da da . . .

turn it out, turn it out . . .

come on love let's start the spark
come on love let's start the spark
but only in the dark

turn out the light, you're mine, so go and turn it out
turn out the light, you're mine
turn out the light, you're mine

the light
the light
the light
