Jocelyn Alice – “The Dark” single

“I’m still sitting by the wet window. Room’s lit by a single candle. I’m fixed to try to let you go. And I ain’t leaving here until I know. I’m sitting by the window sill. And I’m gonna be here ‘til… I’m fixed to try to let you go and I ain’t leaving here until I know.” – lyrics

‘The Dark’ tells a bitter tale of a young woman who wishes her significant other didn’t leave.

Apparently, she wants to get rid of this unwanted person from her head but is unable to do so.

Later, she admits that she needs a savior, good grace, and a bottle of Jamaican rum to cope.
