So dark, so dark
So dark, so dark

Inside lookin' out my window
I don't see nothin' but rain
Sun up n the sky just-a-shinin'
Still I'm lost n my shadow of pain
Mmhmm

Like an innocent man that's on death row
I don't understand what made U go and wanna leave me, baby
Mmm, leave me n the dark
Can U tell me, tell me?

U took my sex and my money
U took all my self-esteem
Yes U did
U had the nerve 2 think it was funny
I never knew a bitch so mean
Ow! Yes sir

U absolutely drove a man 2 tears
All I really know is that U sincerely wanna hurt me, baby
Oh yes U do
U wanna hurt me n the dark
Ooh

(Sunshine) Somebody make the sun shine
(Dark cloud) Somebody take this dark cloud away

Just as sure as Noah built the ark
That's how sure I am U broke my heart
How could U, baby
Mmm, leave me n the dark?

Mmm baby
Ooh, it's so dark (So dark, so dark)
Feel like the sun ain't never gonna shine
U left me n the dark (So dark, so dark)
I don't know, I don't know why we ever had 2 part
Baby, can't see a damn thing out my window, it's so dark
(So dark, so dark)

Mmm, sometimes I want 2 curse the ground U walk on
Even when I know that everything U feel, I feel it 2
I wanna curse U, baby
Ooh, U left me n the dark

And now I want 2 curse U, baby (I wanna curse U, baby)
4 leavin' me alone, alone, alone (U left me n the dark)
Ooh yes U did
And now all I wanna say is...
Ooh, n the dark
Ow! Ha! U left me
Ow! U left me

It's like bein' on death row (Ooh, n the dark)
I don't understand why U had 2 go
I don't understand why U hurt me n the dark
Don't understand why U hurt me n the dark
Don't understand why U hurt me, hurt me, hurt me, hurt me!
Just leave me n the dark

Ooh, n the dark
So dark, so dark (N the dark)
Ooh
So dark, so dark
N the dark
