lyrics

Good day - it’s nice to be here
I’m so pleased to meet you
Have a nice day
Oh, no - where does the time go?
It follows in the light of shadows

I wish that I could stay
But, I must go away
Sure wish that I could stay
But, I can’t and now I must go

I follow shadows through nights of my splendor

Please don’t follow the light in shadows
A long, long time is enough time

By the way, I am sane - I am sane
I wish that I could stay
Sure wish that I could stay
I wish that I could stay
Perhaps another day

I follow shadows through nights of my splendor
I follow shadows

Things that I saw when I was in the light
They draw lines on my shadow in the peace of the night
In the shy reserve
Shy reserve
