Darlene
Lyrics From the LP "The War of the Sons of Light Against the Sons of Darkness", 2017


Darlene...
You waited as long as they
Expected you.
Here's my apartment key.
The Day of Decision,
I've awaited you...
Just come in and
Wake me up.


Still a little
Undecided?
Well, that's alright
Darlene.
And if you decide to go
That's alright Darlene
And if you never show
Still alright Darlene...
And if we decide to
Go through with things, that's
Surely alright--


Darlene...
And everyone thinks that
You're the crazy child.
That's our little secret
I swear.
But we've played with the other
And the issue, now...
...and what a mighty-fine
Time it's been.


Still a little
Undecided?
Well, that's alright
Darlene.
And if you decide to go
That's alright Darlene
And if you never show
Still alright Darlene...
And if we decide to
Go through with things, that's
Surely alright--


We're going out in a
Blaze of Glory, I
See the folly in
Our Own Life Stories, and
If the moment escapes,
It will not let me down.

We're going out like a
Motion Picture, don't
Run away
Boogie-man'll get ya', and
If the moment, it fades
It will not let me down
It will not let me down.


I can hear you
Pacing down the halls...
Now...
Pulling it together
Like it's Now or Never...
Like it's Now or Never...
Just like it's Now or Never...
It's never Now or Never...
No, it's never Now or Never
Darlene.


We're going out in a
Blaze of Glory, I
See the folly in
Our Own Life Stories, and
If the moment escapes,
It will not let me down.

We're going out like a
Motion Picture, don't
Run away
Boogie-man'll get ya', and
If the moment, it fades
It will not let me down
It will not let me down.

We're going out in a
Blaze of Glory, I
See the folly in
Our Own Life Stories, and
If the moment degrades,
It will not let me down.

It will not let me down
It will not let me down
It will not let me down,
Darlene,
