"Shadows" as written by and Gordon Lightfoot....
Let me reach out love and touch you, let me hold you for a while
I've been all around the world and 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 bitter 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, darling, where the river runs away
From the mountains in the springtime on a blue and windy day
Where there's beauty all around as the shades of nights 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
