"Shadows And Tall Trees" as written by and Dave Evans Adam Clayton....
Back to the cold restless streets at night
I talk to myself about tomorrow night
Walls of white protest
The gravestone in name
Who is it now
It's always the same

Who is it now
Who calls me inside
Are the leaves on the trees
Just living disguise
I walk sweet rain tragicomedy
I'll walk home again
To the street melody

But I know, oh no
But I know, oh no
But I know

Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees

Life through a window
Discolored pain
Misses Brown's washing is always the same
I walk street rain tragicomedy
I'll walk home again
To the street melody

But I know, oh no
But I know, oh no
But I know

(Out there)

You feel in me
Anything redeeming
Any worthwhile feeling
Is love like a tightrope
Hanging from the ceiling

But I know, oh no
But I know, oh no
But I know

Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows, shadows, shadows
Shadows, shadows, shadows
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows, shadows, shadows
Shadows, shadows, shadows
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees

    General CommentI see salvation themes in this...doubt that he is worthy. Not just religious, but for love in general.

    You feel in me
    Anything redeeming
    Any worthwhile feeling
    Is love like a tightrope
    Hanging from the ceiling

    Am I worthy of being redeemed or forgiven? Is love a thin line that I can easily fall off of? Have I ruined it all somehow?

    I agree that it seems to be about a young boy, wondering about the world and his place in it. Beautiful lyrics.
