Shadows

© 2021 CS Taber

There are no more shadows

The lights they are bright

You don't need forgiveness

The timing is right

You're searching for answers

The questions will fade

It's time for redemption

I'll play your charade

 

I know who you are

I know where you've been

You were a star

You're a shadow of then

 

I hired you for pennies

Gray beard on the street

A homeless musician

With nothing to eat

You had an old Gibson

And notebooks of songs

Before we made Dallas

My rights were all wrongs

 

I know who you are

I know where you've been

You were a star

You're a shadow of then

 

I saw you in Nashville

When I was twelve

At the Grand Ole Opry

When you were yourself

 

There are no more shadows

The lights they are bright

You're playing your music

To crowds every night

But you're starting to stumble

Your voice cracks and fades

By the time we made Phoenix

You'd lost the charade

 

I know who you are

I know where you've been

You were a star

You're a shadow of then

 

I know who you are

I know where you've been

You were a star

You're a shadow of then
