45 Still Upright Album: 02 Shadow
Lyrics
SHADOW
2014 Sahlen-Starburst

Riddle me this, senorita bliss,
As your magic carpet ride
Hurls me back before the fact
When time was on my side

(chorus)
Just a shadow on the wall, a brief facsimile
Before life's battles came to call, transforming what you see
Just as real as ocean waves come crashing on the shore
So quickly now they fade away a shadow evermore

(Brief Instrumental break)

Is it you again, senorita friend
Take me back to the seaside
I feel the wind's come back again
As ego's lost its pride

(chorus)
Just a shadow on the wall, a brief facsimile
Before life's battles came to call, transforming what you see
Just as real as ocean waves come crashing on the shore
So quickly now they fade away a shadow evermore

(Brief Instrumental break)

(bridge)
To worship at the shrine, of youthful pantomime
Fixated in this gaze, re-living bygone days

(chorus)
Just a shadow on the wall, a brief facsimile
Before life's battles came to call, transforming what you see
Just as real as ocean waves come crashing on the shore
So quickly now they fade away a shadow evermore

Riddle me this, senorita bliss,
As your magic carpet ride
Hurls me back before the fact
When time was on my side

(chorus)
Just a shadow on the wall, a brief facsimile
Before life's battles came to call, transforming what you see
Just as real as ocean waves come crashing on the shore
So quickly now they fade away a shadow evermore
....a shadow evermore...
...a shadow evermore....
...a shadow evermore
