Lyrics

My hands can still remember all my mind knows much better
To recall, and much less to succumb.
But when there’s nothing left to battle, honey, we are only shadows
Of who we were and who we have become.

In the darkness of the day you cannot see the shape of
What has changed and what has stayed the same.
So, if you’re findin that you still go down to that willow,
Might I join you in the silhouette game?

The naked trees are making me forget that time has taken me
Past the days when were very clear.
So tonight, let us be figures, and if there’s moonlight on the river,
Let’s just close our eyes and make it disappear.

In the darkness of the day you cannot see the shape of
What has changed and what has stayed the same.
So, if you’re findin that you still go down to that willow,
Might I join you in the silhouette game?

Memories up in your mind are so strong that they take form sometime,
But what you see is only what you feel.
So it really isn’t somethin new that my body is still missin you.
Everybody knows a body knows what’s real.

There’s no harm in lovin. There’s no foul in becomin
Real good friends who were lovers before.
So you were right: we were wrong, but then we knew that all along.
I’m just saying I can’t feel that anymore.

In the darkness of the day you cannot see the shape of
What has changed and what has stayed the same.
So, if you’re findin that you still go down to that willow,
Might I join you in the silhouette game?
If you find me in that still glow while you’re lookin out your window,
Might I join you in the silhouette game?
