Lyrics

  • IN THE FLINTY LIGHT, IT’S MIDNIGHT, AND STARS COLLIDE
  • SHADOWS RUN IN FULL FLIGHT, TO RUN SEEK AND HIDE
  • WELL I’M STILL NOT SURE WHAT PART I’LL PLAY
  • IN THIS SHADOW PLAY, THIS SHADOW PLAY
  • IN THE HALF LIGHT, ON THIS MAD NIGHT
  • I HEAR A VOICE IN TIME
  • WELL I LOOK BACK AND SEE A HALF SMILE
  • THEN IT’S GONE FROM SIGHT
  • WON’T YOU TELL ME HOW I CAN FIND MY WAY
  • IN THIS SHADOW PLAY, THIS SHADOW PLAY
  • IN THIS SHADOW PLAY, THIS SHADOW PLAY
  • SOUNDS COME CRASHING AND I HEAR LAUGHING
  • ALL THOSE LIGHTS JUST BLAZED AWAY
  • I FEEL A LITTLE STRANGE INSIDE,
  • A LITTLE DOCTOR JEKYLL,
  • A LITTLE MISTER HYDE
  • SOUNDS COME CRASHING AND I HEAR LAUGHING
  • ALL THOSE LIGHTS JUST BLAZED AWAY
  • I FEEL A LITTLE STRANGE INSIDE,
  • A LITTLE DOCTOR JEKYLL,
  • A LITTLE MISTER HYDE
  • THOUGHTS RUN WILD, FREE AS A CHILD
  • INTO THE NIGHT
  • ACROSS THE SCREEN, A THIN BEAM OF MAGIC LIGHT
  • THINGS THEY JUST DON’T LOOK THE SAME
  • IN THIS SHADOW PLAY, THIS SHADOW PLAY
  • IN THIS SHADOW PLAY, THIS SHADOW PLAY
  • I CAN’T RUN AWAY FROM THIS SHADOW PLAY
  • THIS SHADOW PLAY, THIS SHADOW PLAY
