  • In the shadows
    You get to know your lover mostly by feel
    Got to put your faith in things you can touch
    If you dare to
    'Cause the shadows can make you crazy
    With the things they reveal
    They show it all without revealing too much
    Scare the hell out of you
    'Cause me and my love
    Live among the shadows
    Where the old playground is an alley way
    Now me and my love make love among the shadows
    When the sun goes down in a dark hallway
    Love in the shadows where the crowd never goes
    Deep in the shadows where flowers won't grow
    Me and my baby know love in the shadows
    In the shadows
    You got to work at love to get it to shine
    You can't believe in everything that you see
    Not this time around
    'Cause the shadows can play
    A half a million tricks on your mind
    You try your best but you can never break free
    It just kind of drags you down
    'Cause me and my love
    Live among the shadows
    Where the old playground is an alley way
    Now me and my love make love among the shadows
    When the sun goes down in a dark hallway
    Love in the shadows where the sun never shines
    Deep in the shadows where most men go blind
    Me and my baby find love in the shadows
