Let this room shine through the night,
Until the bed is claimed by daylight

In so far as it goes, in so far as I know,
Walking down our back streets, I will be home in too long

I saw a man standing on that hill, walking around like he’s got no one,
When you go I’ve got no soul, where has your soul gone to?
My shadow is coming through

    General Commentit's probably about some guy who feals incompleet without his woman, or vice-versa...

    General CommentDon't look at me with sad eyes, tonight
    can you show me one more smile
    let this room shine through the night
    until the bed is claimed by daylight

    I saw a man standing on that hill
    walking around like he's got no one
    will I end up like him, all alone?
    girl, when you go I've got no soul
    where has your soul gone to?
    your shadow is calling you
    where has my soul gone to?
    I'm a shadow of a man
    yeah

    walking down these back streets
    looking a place where we will meet
    know that I can't ever leave, no
    until my poor bed washes the sea

    I saw a man standing on that hill
    walking around like he's got no one
    will I end up like him, all alone?
    girl, when you go I've got no soul
    where has your soul gone to?
    your shadow is calling you
    where has my soul gone to?
    I'm a shadow of a man
    yeah

    In so far as I know
    in so far as it goes
    I will be home in too long
    I will be home in too long

    I saw a man standing on that hill
    walking around like he's got no one
    will I end up like him, all alone?
    girl, when you go I've got no soul
    where has your soul gone to?
    your shadow is coming through
    where has my soul gone to?
    I'm a shadow of a man
    where has my soul gone to?
    where has my soul gone to?
    where has my soul gone to?
    I'm a shadow of a man
    yeah
