Shadow Song 

There’s shadow in the morning

In the midday sun

There’s shadow in the evening

There’s one for everyone

If the sky is bright

Your shadow comes to play

If the sky is grey

It may just fade away

There’s shadow in the morning

In the midday sun

There’s shadow in the evening

There’s one for everyone
