"Shadows" as written by and Danny Elfman....
Somebody tell me why
I’m so tired I could cry
Fell out the window like a crooked cat
Don’t wanna lay down and die

Lady with the white clothes came from easy street
And now dirty work is all she does
But she don’t wanna show a poor boy where to go
I’m in the darkness because

Shadows at night keep good company
Shadows of day time too
Standing on the fringes of light
Shadows of love will shelter you

Fell out the window like a crooked cat
Well she set my house ablaze
Landing in slow motion
What a beautiful crash
Into a dead end street

No Casanova with a magic lamp
But in the cast I play the lead
Keep it in mind and you just might find
That shadows are all you need

Shadows at night keep good company
Shadows of day time too
Standing on the fringes of light
Shadows of love will shelter you

Shadows of night keep good company
Shadows of the day time too
Standing on the fringes of light
Shadows of love will shelter you
Shelter you
Shelter you
