Black Dog

 

Time and time again
I feel lost inside
And when I try I find
There's no peace of mind

So I'm looking at you here
From down below
Can you hear the words I say
Or am I too far gone?

So I feed the fire as I'm running thru the rain
I gotta catch the liar who is feeding off my shame
Every thought, every doubt, the black dog is never far away
To know who you are I don't need to know your name

Every now and then
There's a beast inside
No matter what I try
It's got a hold of my mind

As I slowly disappear
And darkness grows
I can only wait and pray
This time I'll overcome

So I feed the fire as I'm running thru the rain
I gotta catch the liar who is feeding off my shame
Every thought, every doubt, the black dog is never far away
To know who you are I don't need to know your name
I know who you are

Oh by now I don't need to know your name
Oh by now I don't need to see your face
To know who you are
