Mr. Hudson – Step Into The Shadows lyrics

[Verse 1: Mr. Hudson]
She said step into the shadow, come out of the light
She offered me her cigarette
I said nah babe you're alright
She said step into my shadow, I don't bark but I bite
She said she's feeling thirsty
She needs something tonight
So step into the shadow
Now I can't take my eyes of her lips blood red, redder than red
Eyes like moons. Carry me away from here

[Verse 2: Mr. Hudson]
What could I do?
She said let's find a cosy dive bar
Or we can do this in the street
She'll have a bloody mary
I need something to eat

[Verse 3: Mr. Hudson]
So step into the shadows, come of the light
She offered me my future self
I offered her a light
I stepped into the shadow

[Verse 4: Idris Elba]
I wish we never met, I wish I never saw you standing there yeah
Your silhouette turned a switch in my head, a trick in my bed
You drew blood now it's hard for me to leave
Now it's impossible to leave you
Death of a salesman, death of salesman
Oh yeah you killed a man, yeah, a man on that run
When you tempt me with the passionate, oh, with the passionate
Wish we never met, now I'm never gonna leave, this is who I wanna be, this
Is who I wanna be
Caught me on another side, that darker side, that newer side, that suicide
