Not tonight, Radiohead Please, my love, perhaps not Radiohead tonight Right on the pulse of our lives it may be But it's dark, so dark, and I need to feel light I work all day to keep up the fight To smile in the face of that creep misery So please, my love, perhaps not Radiohead tonight Now I know that light can be taken for trite (Or something much worse which also rhymes tight) But sight can play tricks and you might never see How in darkest of dark, you can so need light And we may love truth with all our might But at times less pain can set us free So please, my love, perhaps not Radiohead tonight Instead joyous sounds, so hot they ignite Disco or banjo or sweet harmony When it gets this dark, it's not wrong to need light I don't want a fake promise, it'll be alright I'm not stupid, you know, just a little weary So please, my love, perhaps not Radiohead tonight In the dark, cruel dark, give me light, warm light.
