Sara Bareilles Only Shadows Lyrics

Babe, will you save me a dance by the river

Moonlight is serving us well

She makes the whole world silhouette

Makes it flicker like film on a strip

Don’t let the sadness in yet to react as if

Somehow it’s all come and gone

Let’s pretend we’re all healed up and happy and moved on

Tonight let the moon come shine

Let us remain you and I

Tell the sun not to rise

For the darkest time

Moonlight keep us steady

Give me one more night then I’m ready

To let go, to know we are only shadows.

Babe, I’m so sorry to ask

I’m ashamed but tonight I just can’t give you up

I shackled myself to the past and my will has gone missing

Let’s call our shadow selves out for the evening

And watch them remember our love

Tomorrow will come and I know they’ll be leaving

That our time is up

Tonight let the moon come shine

Let us remain you and I

Tell the sun not to rise for the darkness lies

Moonlight keep us steady

Give me one more night then I’m ready

To let go, to know we will are only shadows, only shadows, only shadows
