Sun Shadow

Come take a walk
Where this world won’t exist
Ooh my ecstasy lies
Beneath your fingertips
And it’s all right
It’s okay
If we can make it upstairs,
Find our way

Come take a walk
Where this world won’t exist
Ooh my ecstasy lies
Beneath your fingertips
Yes, it’s all right
It’s okay
If we can exit upstairs to the stage

Come take a walk
On the floor, now let’s run
Ooh my ecstasy lies
On the tip of your tongue
And oh, stretch me out
On the banks of the Nile
And shine on me down
With your Corleone smile

When the fever’s low
And the vein clots dry
You come to the quick
Of a sweet surprise
Of knowing someday you will find
Yourself
In my sun shadow

Now I’m caught in the rapture
Of affectionate greed
Yeah, I’m racing and rusted
Like a tin man on speed
As your eyebrows set fire
To your harvest of hair
And your whisper’s the wind
As it gusts out my stare

So come take a walk,
Grab a hold of my hand
Make eternal this moment
A ten-second stand
I can roll a bit further
With your soul as my guide
Till we collapse in K corner
On this bump of a ride

Where the sky is low
And the water’s dry
I come to the quick
Of a sweet surprise
Of knowing someday I will find
Myself
In your sun shadow

Then I’m caught in the rain
Delivered to shame
Like a martyr in vain
Whom heaven sent pain
Like a dove in the rain
Delivered to shame
Like a martyr in vain…

When the fever’s low
And the vein clots dry
You come to the quick
Of a sweet surprise
And I know someday you will find
Yourself
In your sun shadow
