My Name is The Night (Color Me Black) - Brian Fallon

Can you give me something?
Tonight I'm so alone
The moon is upside down
Hanging on the telephone
But I remember
Every little bad dream
Every pretty slow dance

So can I pick you up later?
(When the temperature's better?)
If you need a little shelter
(Be your cool operator)
Keep it all quiet, yeah
(Just a little while)
Let the night wind you down, baby, down

And she smiles, how 'bout that?
I was just about to jump before you called me back
And you know the pain comes home
And the whispers come to call me
In my bed when I'm alone
And I've lost so much more than I ever had
Now my name is the night, honey
Color me black
C-color me black

Can I take you somewhere?
Would it make a difference?
Like pretty roses on a deathbed
But I remember
You in your white dress
In your mama's hands

So can I pick you up later?
(When the temperature's better?)
If you need a little shelter
(Be your cool operator)
Keep it all quiet, yeah
(Just a little while)
Let the night wind us down, baby, down

And she smiles, how 'bout that?
I was just about to jump before you called me back
But you know the pain comes home
And the whispers come to call me
In my bed when I'm alone
And I've lost so much more than I ever had
Now my name is the night, honey
Color me black
C-color me black

And how long, how long
Until you believe that part of me is gone
With your sweet, naive kiss?
Well, I used to feel the same until I let the darkness in
And it cost me nothing baby
Naw, nothing more than this
Nothing more than this useless heart in my chest
Ah, nothing that I needed
And nothing I regret
Nothing that I needed
And I'd do it all again
I'd do it all again

And she smiles, how 'bout that?
I was just about to jump before you called me back
But you know the pain comes home
And the whispers come to call me
In my bed when I'm alone
Singing "Oooo, not just yet
When I go, I'll be going out
In flames and fiery wrecks"
And the quiet to me
Such an ominous sound
Say, my name is the night time now
Yes, the quiet to me
Such an ominous sound
And my name is the night, honey
Color me black
