Shadow of a Ghost – Song Lyric Sunday

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/18/18

***

Today, for SLS, Helen has challenged us to find songs that have to do with shadows. Thanks, Helen!

This really was a challenge for me, because I couldn’t just think of one right off. I know there is the Moonshadow song by Cat Stevens, and I love it, but it seemed too obvious a choice. So, I looked on google for songs about shadows, and didn’t recognize any of them that were listed.

I then thought of typing in ‘ghost shadows’, because when do I not ever think about ghosts. Anyway, this song popped up, and I listened to it. I’d never heard of the singer, or the song. I was pleasantly surprised. This was a really good song, and it has great music.

Now, I don’t quite know what to say about the video. It is strange. There are zombies roaming around. First the singer is on stage singing, then there are zombies chasing her. Why? It’s like a horror movie type deal, but interesting to watch, and I wanted to follow the story to see what happened.

For a brand new to me song and singer, I give it a 10 out of 10. You know, I love horror stories, movies, and all things ghosts, so yeah, I liked this one a lot.

Anyway, give it a listen, see what you think.

Red light, red light please turn green
Do you know what you’re doin’ to me?
Don’t you know I’ve got somewhere to be?
Midnight, midnight please come clean
Give me brand new air to breathe
Don’t you know I’m struggling?
When I need you most you’re a shadow of a ghost
You’re sleeping on the job
My slumbering god
When the whistle blows you’re a cinder in the smoke
So quick to disappear
I wonder are you even here?
Taxman, coming to collect
I’ve overpaid my debt
Don’t you know I’ve nothing left?
Thunder, thunder over head
Are you finished with me yet?
Don’t you know I’m soaking wet?
When I need you most you’re a shadow of a ghost
You’re sleeping on the job
My slumbering god
When the whistle blows you’re a cinder in the smoke
So quick to disappear
I wonder are you even here?
Even here…even here…even here…even here…
Goodbye, goodbye mystery
You’ve lead me to believe
My only hope is me

  1. New-to-me too, but lived this –

    “When I need you most you’re a shadow of a ghost
    You’re sleeping on the job
    My slumbering god
    When the whistle blows you’re a cinder in the smoke
    So quick to disappear
    I wonder are you even here?”

    Wow – awesome! Thanks for the introduction! 👍

  2. I haven’t heard this song either, but I really enjoyed it. Also, who doesn’t love zombies? LOL. I’m always down for a good zombie flick, even one that only lasts roughly four minutes. Thanks for sharing!
