Shadows In The Sun – Lyrics

They have left us their tomorrows
Bore their pain and drowned their sorrow
Piled up legends everyone
And left their shadows in the sun

Surnames few but Christian many
Shining boys and girls were plenty
Strong and weak and old and young
Left their shadows in the sun.

Were they here or were they never
Joined their hands and went together
down the highway everyone
but left their shadows in the sun.

Leaving half a cord of firewood
Closing doors upon their childhood
Leaving broken baby chairs
and family shadows on the stairs

They met their love will meet no other
Saw their face in sister, brother
memories rich and memories poor
More than proud men should endure

Were they here or were they never
Joined their hands and went together
Down the highway everyone
But some left shadows in the sun.
