shadow
lyrics and music by Penelope Houston
Don't you know me
Don't you know me
I'm your shadow
Don't you know me
Recognize me
I'm your shadow
I live behind your old oak doors
So swing them wide swing them open
Never bought, I'll never sell
That sweet sharp twilight glowing like a bell
Ringing off of foreign shores
Catch the ship that crosses over land
Passing through your mortal laws
Smooth as a mothers hand

Don't you know me
Don't you know me
I'm your shadow
Don't you know me
Recognize me
I'm your shadow

I live inside your honeyed walls
Beside the stench of fires burning out
People's houses, people's clothes
Floating down in ashes from a cloud of doubt
Seven nights and seven days
Feel the heat, the penetrating gaze
Passing through your mortal laws
Soft as a lovers hand

Don't you know me
Don't you know me
I'm your shadow, be your angel
Don't you know me
Don't you know me
I'm your shadow

Band of angels, hear them singing
They're going to take me home
Band of angels, hear them laughing
They're going to lay me down
Band of angels, hear them singing
They're going to take me home
Band of angels, hear them laughing
They're going to lay me down
