Josh Ritter – Long Shadows lyrics
I'm not afraid of the dark
We've been here before
Fallen on hard times, honey
We've fallen on swords
But 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
Cast their long shadows
Every time that they start
I'll be right here with you
I'm not afraid of the dark

Out on the hills the hounds are baying
Our 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
Cast their long shadows
Every time that they start
I'll be right here with you
I'm not afraid of the dark
