I can't tell you I'm
Ever gonna learn to send these blues away
This darkness inside ya
Black dog on your shoulder
Finding that one cloud on a day
Of silver linings
Makes me tired and old so I'm

Releasing the hounds
To chase my sorrow down
They've been on the run so long
But now the hunt is on
Somehow they carry the promise
Somehow we carry the pain
if it seems like I'm going down
Release the hounds again

Try to be the only one
To see the cloud before the sun
Try to be the only one
Feeling half empty
Hard times come along and
They are hanging around my neck
