Shadows

(Emily Higgins)
SHADOWS
By Emily Higgins

I saw your shadow glance by me
Made me cry and ask you why
You would say ‘hello’ in such a form
Was it to help me through a killing storm?

The shadow from a passing cloud
Crosses fields freshly plowed
Oceans, valleys and rolling hills
Creeps across our window sills

CHORUS:
Sun goes down and the shadows grow
Doesn’t matter where you go
They never leave and they’re never far
They always know just where you are

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

REPEAT CHORUS:
Sun goes down and the shadows grow
Doesn’t matter where you go
They never leave and they’re never far
They always know just where you are

The photograph that you took one day
Of our two shadows, it was May
We were hand-in-hand, side-by-side
Life’s been such a thrilling ride
