flood my darkness with your light from ELP Lend your Love to me tonight by 

Lend your love to me tonight

Don’t ask me who or what is right
I have no strength I cannot fight
Just flood my darkness with your light
I need no face I need no name
No martyr’s artificial shame
No crucifix I am not lame
And yet I ache to feel the flame
Arrest the sun and shoot the moon
The lamp of laughter dies too soon
To live reflected in a spoon
Makes it too hard to stay in tune…Believe me
Unlock the door and unbar the gate
I’ll write I love you on the slate
And while St. Peter’s thieves debate
The price of time I will not wait
Or let the star blind road of fate….Confuse me Abuse me Misuse me
Release my soul release my eyes
A clock unwinds a flower dies
Dishonesty disqualifies
You win the race but lose the prize
A tattered cloak behind the throne
It is unseen it is not known
Behind this face I am alone
I would give everything I own To touch you…
Just lend your love to me once more
Don’t ask me what I came back for
Just watch the moonlight cross the floor
And as your blood begins to roar
You’ll feel your senses spin and soar
You will become my meteor
Divine and universal whore…Complete me

    Love the poem, did you write it?

  • no not mine Emerson Lake and Palmer song, very good song—couldn’t find it on Youtube to link it and couldn’t figure out how to post it from my computer

    Well it’s a great song choice. Beautiful lyrics.

  • I think the song itself is sung with great passion, if you have ever heard it?
