Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Shadows And Tall Trees” from Boy.

This is one of my favorite songs from “Boy”.

I like the part in the song where the music kicks up a bit; right at the two-minute mark.

I think that what truly makes this song amazing, though, is everything from the shouting “Shadows, shadows, shadows,” on to the end of the song.

Back to the cold restless streets at night
Talk to myself about tomorrow night
Walls of white protest
A gravestone in name
Who is it now?
It's always the same

Who is it now
Who calls me inside?
All the leaves on the trees
Just live in disguise
I walk street rain tragicomedy
I'll walk home again
To the street melody

But I know, oh no
But I know, oh no
But I know

Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees

Life through a window
Discoloured pane
Mrs. Brown's washing is always the same
I walk street rain tragicomedy
I'll walk home again
To the street melody

But I know, oh no
But I know, oh no
But I know
(Out there)

Do you feel in me
Anything redeeming
Any worthwhile feeling
Is life like a tightrope
Hanging from my ceiling

But I know, oh no
But I know, oh no
But I know

Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Shadow, shadow, shadow
My shadow, shadow, shadow
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall trees
Follow me and my shadow, shadow, shadow
Salute my shadow, shadow, shadow
Shadows and tall trees
Shadows and tall
Shad-!
