The Shadow (What Luck)

from by Teenager



Why January?
Footprints on the dashboard—O the Summer.
Blacklist the colors—Washed out and washed away.
And not a thrill, no not a thrill parades.

Ring in the New Year—In the puddles, always the puddles.
We’ll pay any price—O to squint my eyes.
Shadows on shadows—Forty shhh! shades of gray.
Until the end, until the end of time.

Oooh, What luck o what luck!

Rise where’s the Shining?—We’re sick of talking, time is a ticking.
A million urge the clouds to part—And the rain applauds.
Down with the old cold—Up, up, up and away.
And did you hear it disappears into thin air.

Oooh, What luck o what luck!

Cracked like a shutter.
Blindly how we blink alike.
Sing me a swan song—Magical Sun.
Until the spring, until the spring has sprung.

Oooh, What luck o what luck!
