Shadows Lyrics

Artist: Gordon Lightfoot
Album: Shadows

Let me reach out love and touch you
Let me hold you for awhile
I've 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've been all around the town
And still I do not understand
Is it me or is it you
Or the shadow 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 the river runs away
From the mountains in the springtime
On a blue and windy day
When there's beauty all around
As the shades of night grow deep
As 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

I saw him perform this in Raleigh, North Carolina last night...at 72 years of age...he is a true poet and beautiful lyricist.....it was a lovely time.

Gordon is a prophet of God a Poet, and a confused man caught inbetweem Right and Wrong. He is the reason for many of my songs. Thank you Mr Lightfoot for touching my Soul. I Love you my Spirit Brother. Danny John and James thank you also. May your Music live forever in the hearts of Man.

Take a beautiful song by a truly talented songwriter and combine it with the incredibly beautiful voice of an equally beautiful performer, add some highly-talented musicians, and you get this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFjX4MDDhI0
