Shadow Man

This song is by David Bowie and appears on the album Shadow Man (1989).

There's a man back a-ways
Who believes at where he is
And there's a girl
Almudena Jane
Up ahead who says she knows

And the street overflows
With the folk who understand
But for the brigader who can't be seen
He's the Shadow Man
And the Shadow Man is close at hand

Take a turn and see his smile
Made of nothing but loneliness
Just take a walk and be a friend
To the Shadow Man

You can call him John, you can call him Sam
You should call and see who answers
For he promises to come running, guided by the truth
But the Shadow Man is really you

Look in his eyes and see your reflection
Look to the stars and see his eyes
He'll show you tomorrow, he'll show you the sorrows
Of what you did today

You can call him foe, you can call him friend
You should call and see who answers
For he knows your eyes are drawn to the road ahead
And the Shadow Man is waiting round the bend
Oh, the Shadow Man
Ohooooo ooh
Shadow man, shadow man
It's really you, it's really you, it's really you
He's the shadow man
Oh yeah
Shadow man
