Alone In The Dark
written by John Hiatt

Itís a lonely picture
Of an empty glass
Itís a still life study
Of a drunken ass
And he howls at the moon
Hoping the sun donít come up too fast

Chorus #1:
Iím all alone in the dark now baby
Iím all alone in the dark now baby
Iím all alone on my knees at last
Alone in the dark

Itís extreme self pity
And frozen fear
ícause I want you with me
And youíre not here
So I rub my nose in it babe
ítil the roses smell just like death

Chorus #2:
Iím all alone in the dark now baby
Iím all alone in the dark now baby
Iím al alone and drawing whisky breath
Alone in the dark

My head is spinning baby what went wrong
I swear to God I tried
Just turned around one day and you were gone
Now these tears I have to cry
Alone in the dark baby, Iím all alone,
Iím all alone, Iím all alone

Since the night you left
I just couldnít stand myself anyway

Chorus #1 twice
