  • [Verse 1: John Darnielle]
    I saw the darkness coming down
    It posed no threat to me
    I let the darkness ease its way around
    It was every good thing I'd expected it would be
    I saw you coming through the twisting vines outside
    I saw the new moon collide
    With the stars
    Clustered around her

    [Verse 2]
    I saw the young fruit on the new lime
    I felt your breath catch its rhythm
    I heard your legs push away the tall, dry brush
    I saw the moon and the stars and knew the secrets within them
    I heard you saying my name into my ear
    No one has to tell me why you've come here
    'Cause I know, I know
    I know
