lyrics

Shadow Of A Man
Dave Rose
Geoff Thurman

You were six years old
Ran up the bridge behind me
The sun so hot and bright
The blaze would burn the night
And you reached out for my hand
Looking for a cool place in the sand
Standing in the shadow of a man

You were seventeen
Learning to live without me
That rage wore you like skin
Hell bent to do you in
You found no way of escape
From every bit of shame that shaped the cage
You were standing in the shadow of a man

On one side you feel shelter
The other you feel pain
And in between that love and hate
Is the strength to keep you sane

Moving on your own
Learning to live without me
Because courage set the stage
You broke out of the rage
Run free and scream out loud
And know that I will be forever proud
Now I’m standing in the shadow of a man

On one side you see shelter
The other you feel pain
And in between that love and hate
Is the strength to keep you sane
