Any time tomorrow I will lie and say I'm fine
I'll say yes when I mean no
And any time tomorrow
The sun will cease to shine
There's a shadowman who told me so

Any time tomorrow the rain will play a part
Of a play I used to know
Like no other
Used to know it all by heart
But a shadowman inside has let it go

Oh no, let go of my hand
Oh no, not now I'm down, my friend
You came to me anew
Or was it me who came to you
Shadowman

Any time tomorrow
I will try to do what's right
Making sense of all I can
Any time tomorrow
I'll pretend to see the light
I just might
Shadowman

Oh here's the sun again
Isn't it appealing to recline
Get blinded and to go into the light again
Doesn't it make you sad
To see so much love denied
See nothing but a shadowman inside

Oh no, let go of my hand
Oh no, not now I'm down, my friend
You came to me anew
Or was it me who came to you
Shadowman

Oh, if you're coming down to rescue me
Now would be perfect
Please, if you're coming down to rescue me
Now would be perfect

    General Commenti THINK the song is about Gert who is the shadow man. In fact when I saw him playing this song live, he was dressed in black and it just came in my head. There was almost no light on him. I think the song is about fame, how it can leave you so alone. i think he's talking about the fact that his sister is much more put in the light than him. But i'm really not sure of that.

    General CommentI think this song is about depression and how it can shadow your life to the point where you can't even see the good in it. You want to be saved but it seems inevitebly impossible
