“When the Shadows Grow Long” Official Lyric Video

When the Shadows Grow Long

When the shadows grow long
And the night is coming on strong
Like they always do my thoughts turn to you
And the days before it all went wrong

When the sunlight unwinds
And reveals all the ways I’ve been blind
I find it hard to ignore the way it was before
And your words and your lips come to mind

And the darkness will envelop my soul
And the next few hours will take a toll
I can always tell when it’s coming
It’s after the shadows grow long

I go through my days
And make it through okay
But when it comes to the evening, I find myself grieving
And the memories begin to play

And the darkness will envelop my soul
And the next few hours will take a toll
I can always tell when it’s coming
It’s after the shadows grow long

I’ve got some time before midnight
A little wine and some letters to burn
I can sit alone in the firelight
And hope that a new page will turn

And the darkness will envelop my soul
And the next few hours will take a toll
I can always tell when it’s coming
It’s after the shadows grow long
