The Shadow of Heaven

 

I can't remember what we were thinkin'

three sweet kids on a soft summer night

I was a little silly from drinkin'

watchin'  you guys dancin' in the firelight

who was it we were thinkin' 'bout savin'

who was it who was turned toward the night

stuck in the shadow of heaven

halfway into the light

 

I don't know how we could stand there laughin'

watchin' our reflections in the lake

high on the plans we were hatchin'

turnin' ourselves into somethin' we couldn't shake

what was it we were thinkin' 'bout makin'

down there in the valley o' tears

stuck in the shadow of heaven

jus' beyond our own ears

 

I guess I mighta talked a little too bold

I guess I thought I could carry the weight

but my back is bent an' I'm growin' old

I jus' hope I'm not too little too late

I think o' the love we been showin'

an' I think o' the life we give

here in the shadow of heaven

waitin' fer someone t' live

 

yeah I wonder what we were thinkin'

a fishin' trip into the night

stuck in the shadow of heaven

halfway into the light
