Hoodoo Gurus - Shadow Me Lyrics

I was counting on you being there
Hoping you would shield me from the glare
Shadow me - I have lived in shadows all my life
I've been waiting an eternity
For tonight to spread it's arms and comfort me
Shadow me - I have lived in shadows all my life

Things we did together yesterday
Feels more like twenty years ago
Oh, baby, I never lied
I told you my hands were tied
All the time. You said "That'll be fine"

Like the mariners from ages past
I steer my way through trackless seas
By the light of stars

Won't you be my shadow?

    This song has always just spoken to me. I bought the CD in a very tumultuous time in my life and am glad I can look back now with a new perspective.

    I love this song...the lyrics throughout are so poetic and could only be written by a passionate young person at the height of their talents...that second verse about "Like the mariners from ages past..." kills me evertime - "Things we did together yesterday feels more like 20 years ago" - I think this to myself when I see or think of my old friends from back in the day. Also, excellent guitar and song writing from a musical perspective.

    Great song by the Hoodoo Gurus.  I was first turned onto them by their album "Blow Your Cool" which got good airplay on Tampa's public/college radio stations: WMNF and WUSF and then bought the cassette "Magnum Cum Louder" when it came out in 1989.  I remember listening to this song a lot while I studied for classes at Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa..   Thank for posting this!.
