Long Shadows

Long Shadows

Josh Ritter

I'm not afraid of the dark; we've been here before,
Fallen on hard times, Honey, we've fallen on swords
So if a long shadow falls across your heart,
I'll be right here with you, I'm not afraid of the dark.

I'm not afraid of the dark when the sun goes down
And the dreams grow teeth and the beasts come out and cast their long shadows
Every time they start I'll be right here with you, I'm not afraid of the dark.

Out on the hills, the hounds are baying
Out on the moor, the foxes run
To stay alive until the light has faded,
Then pray for light that seems so long to come.

I'm not afraid of the dark, so if the stars get scarce and you reach for him,
And, Honey, he's not there, just a long shadow across your heart
You can reach for me, I'm not afraid of the dark.

I'm not afraid of the dark when the sun goes down
And the dreams grow teeth and the beasts come out and cast their long shadows
Every time they start you can reach for me, I'm not afraid of the dark
