Williams, Don – Shadow Land Lyrics

Everytime the tide comes in the tide goes out
Some folks fail some do alright
You could take a Johnboat all the way to town
Had an angry broken father, in a house beside the water.

Chorus:
Shadowland, what secret are you keeping
Are you only sleepin to wake another day
Shadowland, Oh, how could I have loved you
I never really knew you, anyway.

Funny how the stars down there shine so bright
Breeze comes in just like a prayer
Mama asked Jesus to keep daddy home at night
I guess it was a pity, but Jesus never did it.

Chorus:
Shadowland, what secret are you keeping
Are you only sleepin to wake another day
Shadowland, Oh, how could I have loved you
I never really knew you, anyway.

Storms blew up from Mexico,
The boats would all come in
Nights like that you could smell
Salt water on the wind
I was so young back then.

Brother was a gifted child so they said
We could build a starship in the yard
Angry voices came from the house at night
So we’d play a game he made up
And stayed out a little later.

Chorus:
Shadowland, what secret are you keeping
Are you only sleepin to wake another day
Shadowland, Oh, how could I have loved you
I never really knew you, anyway…
