Friendo 02:23 video
Running up the hill Only you pass through Running with the drugs Only you consume Roaming around the house Only you inside You’ve got me where you want me Can’t beat yourself on this
2.
If I look, I see the saddest things If I listen, I hear the saddest things If I dream, I’m in the saddest dream If she talks now, what was bright turns dark What was bright turns dark
3.
Starstruck 03:23

Coke Diet 04:34
In the right time At the right call It’s all you in the end Right now In your weak moment It’s all you in the end Oh, you in the end …
5.
No Treatment 03:28
My mind ran out of dreams  When I walked right into the night You’re the dream I had Now I will walk back tired There’s a dark room There’s a dark room behind our eyes When my mind ran out of dreams  I walked back into your arms You’re the dream I had Now I will walk back tired There’s a dark room There’s a dark room behind our eyes
6.
Sink in your teeth all the way through It took me a while to come into my own I’m losing my way You were there all along If you can take it, what could go wrong Sink in your teeth all the way through What could go wrong
7.
Glowing One 04:14
You know I was really on to something But couldn’t take the time to serve it right I know What rendered me useless needs reinvention with ever-stranger commitment In the most common of times You know How I hate the impression of your contemporaries That your calm on demand will fix this mess I know Your useless efficiency, your coaching ambitions, and your flight mode standby Can’t take care of my spare parts
8.
Don’t make a move Try to fade yourself out Oh, what to do When you run the wrong way Up and down Turn around and see Nothing will change I turn to you instead You’re not in for a change Oh, what to do You try to board up the doors Don’t make a move It’s your name that’s on the house Turn around and see Nothing will change I turn to you instead You’re not in for a change, again  …

about

“I really haven’t heard another record that sounds like this one. I love it.” (Birthday Cake for Breakfast)

“With loopy and addictive melodies, ‘I Don't Want It Darker’ stands out among the many retro releases thanks to its nuanced aesthetics and stylish eclecticism.” (VISIONS)

“There’s a lot to find here, especially if you’re a filmmaker searching for the right soundtrack to your sci-fi love story.” (Overblown)

“It's dark but rather sunny all the same. It's clearly pop (the melodies here and there) but it's definitely not pop (far too fuzzy, far too cosmic).” (DCALC)

“If Lynch was ever exiled to the continent the way Orson Welles was and he put together a cult retro science fiction tale set in West Berlin, this album would be knocking on his door demanding to be included.” (Apocalypse Later)

“If you have a penchant for Blur (when they are not being annoying and in an experimental frame of mind), this could well be the album to soundtrack these oncoming months of strangeness and wonder.” (Monolith Cocktail)
