Shadows

lurking in the shadows
the man you once were
eyes of an orphan
mouth of a kisser
kind of a blur

in the shadows
nobody goes
in the shadows
nobody goes
in the shadows
nobody goes

creepin' down the crickety staircase
the girl you once were
i never meant to
hurt anybody
please, officer

in the shadows
nobody goes
in the shadows
nobody goes
in the shadows

look above
only rainbows, no more rain
you say love
i say cosmic joke again

reflected in the windows
of a cross-time bus
first a strong army
then a small family
now it's just us

lurking in the shadows
the man you once were
eyes of an orphan
mouth of a kisser
kind of a blur
