​Shadows

This song is by Red House Painters and appears on the album Ocean Beach (1995).

The coarse and white coat of your skin
It blends with the state you're in
And the wetness of your eyes
Against a sun that clouds blind

You ain't saying nothing that I don't already know
When you say love's dimming light won't shine on tomorrow
You ain't saying nothing that I don't already know
When you say love's dimming light won't shine on tomorrow

Chalk white apartment's walls
Surfaces my every flaw
And the naked and the still in here
It brings some real life
Into clear

You ain't doing nothing that I don't already know
When you hide your sorry head in pillows
And you ain't doing nothing that I don't already know
When you hide your sorry head in
When you hide your sorry head in pillows

You fake a strained, sort-of grin
That matches the shape you're in
And accept any lies or truth
After the long year that we've been through

And you ain't saying nothing that I don't already know
When you say life takes turns like fiery shadows
And you ain't saying nothing that I don't already know
When you say life takes turns like fiery
When you say life takes turns like fiery shadows
