What if Bowie really was the glue that was holding it all together?


Shadow Man is close at hand 
Take a turn and see his smile made of nothing but loneliness. 
Just take a walk and be a friend to the Shadow Man.  

There`s a man back a-ways who believes in where he is 
and there`s a girl up ahead who says she knows 
and the street overflows with the folk who understand 
but for the guy who can`t be seen, 
he`s the Shadow Man

You can call him Joe, 
you can call him Sam, 
you should call and see who answers, for he promises to come running, guided by the truth
You can call him foe, 
you can call him friend; 
you should call and see who answers for he knows your eyes are drawn to the road ahead 
Shadow Man is waiting round the bend

But the Shadow Man is really you
look in his eyes and see your reflection.  
Look to the stars and see his eyes.  
He`ll show you tomorrow, 
he`ll show you the sorrows of what you did today.  

Shadow man
