"I Will Follow You Into the Dark" is the third single from Death Cab for Cutie's album Plans. It's an acoustic ballad performed solo, by frontman Ben Gibbard. It was recorded with a single microphone, and there is no overdubbing in the song. It was released as a single in the UK as a two-part 7" single (one on green vinyl, the other on "mustard" colored vinyl) and as a CD single. The I Follow You Into The Dark Songfacts states that Gibbard told VH1's Storytellers that Gibbard penned the song in a burst of creativity in 15 miniutes at a Seattle studio, which he kept solely for songwriting.

I Will Follow You Into The Dark - Death Cab for Cutie

Love of mine,
Someday you will die,
But I'll be close behind,
I'll follow you into the dark.

No blinding light
Or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight,
Waiting for the hint of a spark.

If heaven and hell decide,
That they both are satisfied,
Illuminate the "no's" on their vacancy signs,
If there's no-one beside you when your soul embarks,
Then I'll follow you into the dark.

In Catholic school,
As vicious as roman rule,
I got my knuckles bruised,
By a lady in black

And I held my tongue, as she told me "son,
Fear is the heart of love",
So I never went back.

If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied,
Illuminate the "no's" on their vacancy signs,
If there's no-one beside you when your soul embarks,
Then I'll follow you into the dark.

You and me, have seen everything to see,
From Bangkok to Calgary,
And the soles of your shoes
Are all worn down, the time for sleep is now, it's nothing to cry about,
Cause we'll hold each other soon,

In the blackest of rooms,

If heaven and hell decide, that they both are satisfied,
Illuminate the "no's" on their vacancy signs,
If there's no-one beside you when your soul embarks,
Then I'll follow you into the dark.
Then I'll follow you into the dark.
