Dark Shadow (On the Cold Hard Ground) - Released December 20, 2012

(R.X. Bertoldi)

Dark Shadow (On the Cold Hard Ground)

Down here by the station

See you shiverin' all around

It's clear you have nothin' more than

Cardboard on the ground

Every breath you take

Floats away like smoke

Any dreams you once entertained

Have all been lost or broke

 

CHORUS:     

Leaving only SHADOWS

Little more to be found

DARK SHADOWS

ON THE COLD HARD GROUND

 

Oh it 'tis the season

Christmas decorations say

But there's little joy to the world

Outside the shop's display

 

So your hands reach out

And those coins they shine

As the sun breaks through the clouds

Onto this soup kitchen line

 

CHORUS:     

Where you cast your SHADOW

Little more to be found

Your DARK SHADOW

ON THE COLD HARD GROUND

 

BRIDGE:       

Only the cold and darkness surround you

Under the weight of the night

But hope still springs eternal

By the glow of that old street light

 

CHORUS:     

Where you cast your SHADOW

Little more to be found

Your DARK SHADOW

ON THE COLD HARD GROUND

CHORUS (repeat)
