I'll Carry You Into The Dark (Song Of A Dullahan)

March 18, 2018

 

Today I capitalized on some inspiration and wrote a song.

 

St. Patrick's Day got me thinking about Celtic mythology. Celtic mythology got me thinking about Dullahans. And Dullahans reminded me of Death Cab For Cutie's I'll Follow You Into The Dark

 

For this song, the chords, structure, and chorus melody were borrowed from I'll Follow You Into The Dark. I wrote lyrics and swapped verse melody for an original harmony.

 

 

I'll Carry You Into The Dark

 

Verse 1:

Fragile man

I know you don’t understand

And you wouldn’t care to dance

Especially not with me. 

 

But trust my words

When I say it could be worse

Your body’s trapped in a hearse

But your soul gets to ride with me

 

Chorus:

I see the fear in your eyes

I know you’re terrified

And I don’t know what I’d 

do if I were in your place

But since this world’s behind you

And your home’s so far

I’ll carry you into the dark

 

Verse 2:

And I know I seem

Like some horrifying scene

Headless and hard to believe

A stranger from a land unknown

But I promise you

And I don’t mean to seem rude

You’ve got some growing up to do

You’ll see horrors worse than me

 

Chorus:

I see the fear in your eyes

I know you’re terrified

And I don’t know what I’d 

do if I were in your place

But since this world’s behind you

And your home is so far

I’ll carry you into the dark

 

Verse 3:

You have run

From me for so long

Built your mind and your body strong

And gathered all the gold you could

But now you know

There’s no place for you to go

Climb aboard and I’ll take you home

To a home fit for your crime

 

I know you know why

 

Chorus:

I see the fear in your eyes

I know you’re terrified

And I don’t know what I’d 

do if I were in your place

But since this world’s behind you

And your home is so far

I’ll carry you into the dark
