lyrics

Is the shadow out?
She plucks the curtain back;
And it’s there upon the ground:
So still, so sad.
It stretches ‘cross the street:
A strange and unknown form.
Its name she does not know.
Its purpose still a mystery.

The shadow’s much too bright
To let her see its face.
It’s waiting like a knife,
It’s waiting like an angel.

“Are you my father’s ghost?”
She whispers in the darkness.
She goes to fetch a drink,
Then comes back for the show.
“Are you my father’s ghost?”
She whispers once again;
And scans the empty street
Just for the absent shadow.

Desolation comes again,
And it’s heavier than relief.
Desolation comes again,
And it’s emptier than her grief.
