Lyrics
I woke riding on a falling moon
Turns my heart and my pillow blue
Traveled so long that you're old and new
Traveled so fast I lost my shadow

One of these days I realize
The darkest shadow falls from the clearest skies

You're so silent and your skin so cold
That I jump up saying "Go shadow go"
And your surface from a deep blue sleep
I say I'm thirsty and I had a dream
You say "There's a glass of water on the floor,
so you don't need to leave me anymore"

One of these nights I'll sell my soul
To sleep in something that doesn't rock and roll

I woke riding on a falling moon
turns my heart and my pillow blue
Tried to make peace between the new and old
Tried so hard to lose my shadow

One of these days I realize
The darkest shadow falls from the clearest skies
