Keith Wright - Shadow Beneath the tree lies a shadow It is made possible by the sun Beneath the tree lies a shadow When night falls it is gone If my life were like a shadow And darkness were to come If my life were like a shadow I would always pray for the sun When the shadow no longer appears And it becomes difficult to roam When the shadow no longer appears Then heaven will always be my home jerry dupler
