CoCo And The Butterfields – Shadow Puppets lyrics

Six thirty in the morning, and I'm waiting for the sun to tickle me
To hoist me up out of my sleep
It's eight and I'm yawning, I'm nervous for today
To win, to lose, to take a bow, not sure what I'll say
I'm sticking to the certainty that we could throw a thought though I'm putting in the keys
As if I hadn't told you, I'll draw a speech, I'll paint a note, read you all the things I wrote
It's up to you

Shadow puppets in the dark cannot move very far
They just stick to the wall
Shadow puppets on the moon, and I know I'll see you soon
Because I'm hoping in the sun, hoping in the sun

Watching the big hand overtake his younger kin, and knowing full well that he'll be the one to win
What's the need for expressing what I mean in such a code, when all you do is hang your head and sigh?
It's lunch and I'm starving, bacon bap or maybe two, a cup of tea, I'll suck a mint just to put me in the mood
By now you havn't shown up, my candle's running thin, and I know, that I'm not the one to win this time

Shadow puppets in the dark cannot move very far
They just stick to the wall
Shadow puppets on the moon, and I know I'll see you soon
Because I'm hoping in the sun, hoping in the sun

Shadow puppets in the dark cannot move very far
They just stick to the wall
Shadow puppets on the moon, and I know I'll see you soon
Because I'm hoping in the sun, hoping in the sun

That's why I am here hoping, that's why I am here holding on
That's why I am here hoping, that's why I am here holding on
That's why I am here hoping, that's why I am here holding on
That's why I am here hoping, that's why I am here

Shadow puppets in the dark cannot move very far
They just stick to the wall
Shadow puppets on the moon, and I know I'll see you soon
Because I'm hoping in the sun, hoping in the sun

Shadow puppets in the dark cannot move very far
They just stick to the wall
Shadow puppets on the moon, and I know I'll see you soon
Because I'm hoping in the sun, hoping in the sun

I am hoping in the sun, hoping in the sun, I am hoping in the sun
I am hoping in the sun, hoping in the sun, I am hoping in the sun
