Shadows
Shadows - Gordon Lightfoot



Won't you reach out love and touch me,

let me hold you for awhile?

I been all around the world,

oh how I long to see you smile.

There's a shadow on the moon

and the waters here below

do not shine the way they should,

and I love you just in case you didn't know.



Let it go.

Let it happen like it happened once before.

It's a wicked wind and it chills me to the bone,

and if you do not believe me

come and gaze upon the shadow at your door.



Won't you lie down by me baby,

run your fingers through my hands?

I been all around the town

and still I do not understand.

Is it me or is it you?

Or the shadown of a dream?

Is it wrong to be in love?

Could it be the finest love I've ever seen?



Set it free.

Let it happen like it happened once before.

It's a wicked wind and it chills me to the bone,

and if you do not believe me

come and gaze upon the shadow at your door.



Please kiss me gently darlin'

where that river runs away

from the mountains in the springtime

on a blue and windy day.

Where there's beauty all around

as the shades of night grow deep.

When the morning stars grow dim

they will find us in the shadows fast asleep.



Let it go.

Let it happen like it happened once before.

It's a wicked wind and it chills me to the bone,

and if you do not believe me

come and gaze upon the shadow at your door
