Carrie Newcomer – A Map Of Shadows lyrics
It's four in the morning, the last dregs of the evening.
I sit and rock on the front porch swing,
'Til the morning sky starts bleeding
It's cool and it's quiet,
Bats and owls lay down beside it
Mourning doves breathe a sigh,
As the shadow passes by

Well well well, it's so hard to tell
There's a line between light and dark
Between heaven and hell
Well well well, well well well,
It's not easy to see
What's out there on my left or right
Or what's right in front of me

There is magic in the dawning,
A black and white Esher drawing
Night pivots on its axis and turns into day

Devils close down shop and move along,
With angels wink and slide familiar palms,
Say, "Good night good luck 'til the day comes round
And out on the other side."

[Chorus x2]

It's beyond my understanding,
So much depends on where you're standing,
Yet I hold it up into the light,
Take a better look
I've been plenty wrong before,
Choose tiger behind the door,
But it always seems to make more sense in the pale morning air
