Shadows (Live In Reno)

Won't you reach out, love and touch me
Let me hold you for awhile?
I been all around the world
Oh, how I long to see you smile

There's a shadow on the moon
And the waters here below
Do not shine the way they should
And I love you just in case you didn't know
Let it go

Let it happen like it happened once before
It's a wicked wind and it chills me to the bone
And if you do not believe me
Come and gaze upon the shadow at your door

Won't you lie down by me, baby
Run your fingers through my hands?
I been all around the town
And still I do not understand

Is it me or is it you?
Or the shadow of a dream?
Is it wrong to be in love?
Could it be the finest love I've ever seen?
Set it free

Let it happen like it happened once before
It's a wicked wind and it chills me to the bone
And if you do not believe me
Come and gaze upon the shadow at your door

Please kiss me gently, darling
Where that river runs away
From the mountains in the spring time
On a blue and windy day

Where there's beauty all around
As the shades of night grow deep
When the morning stars grow dim
They will find us in the shadows fast asleep
Let it go

Let it happen like it happened once before
It's a wicked wind and it chills me to the bone
And if you do not believe me
Come and gaze upon the shadow at your door
