"Shadows" as written by and Ryan Adams....
I fall, in the cutting room
Straight to the fall, before the film is through
Today in my head, that field of reason why
Come a little closer, honey
And touch the fire
How long do I have here with you?
The flowers that once were a new
Shadows

Heaven waits, in the darkness of a room
And the shaking at the gates,
From here to Timbuktu
Cold front rolls in, like a black balloon
And it sinks into your soul
And you tell it what you knew

How long do I have here with you?
How long do I have here with you?
How long?
The flowers that once were anew
Are shadows

The mystery of the stars
That fell from your eyes
Watch it as it burns
Like I'm sitting on fire
That mountain is tall
And you know you'll have to climb
Put your arms around me
And let's go for a ride

How long do I have here with you?
How long do I have here with you?
How long?
How long?
Before the shadows

    My InterpretationI feel a bit weird being the only one commenting (so long after the song came out) but man, this is such a heartbreaking song. I think it's pretty clear it's about watching someone wither away before your eyes and die. So hauntingly beautiful.
