lyrics

I don’t care if I am
just a memory to you
I’ve been waiting so long
to feel the way you make me do.
I don’t care if I am
just a shadow of her face
I don’t need no tender words
& I don’t need your saving grace.


so let me be your Shade
let us claim as ours the night;
let me be your Shade
standing in her hallowed light.


all those things you took so
very fragile in your hands
would fall apart in my heart
if she would speak her one command.
all those things you saw so
very sacred in her eyes,
they’re not in yours, they’re not in mine,
& boy, you know i’m not your christ.




things can get so troubled, when you’re all alone &
full of hate.
but come on over baby, I know you and me can
make it straight.

wind me up & drag me all around across
the kitchen floor,
push you up against a mirror, darling, you know I will
beg for more.


but you’re so new to the scene, & I can’t
take it for granted, for granted, for granted.
you’re so new to the scene, & I can’t
take you for granted, for granted, for granted.
