Lyrics

Shadow
I’m a shadow in town as I pass looking down
Rarely catching your eye as I walk quickly by
To a job for a day if I’m lucky to be
Picked to climb in your truck with the others like me
We’ll crush rocks, we’ll move trees, hammer nails in the sun
Work your land, clean your yard, till the work is all done
Then we’ll take what you give with no recourse if cheated
Walking quickly away just a shadow defeated
And you need me, you need me
You need me to keep the cost of your life at bay
Yeah, you need me more than I need you
Cause you need me to build the wall to keep us away
When I’m scrubbing your floor when I’m washing your sheets
I imagine myself walking tall through your streets
Going home to a house
That I bought with real wages
Going home with the strength to follow my dreams
And you need me,
You need me
You need me to keep the cost of life at bay
Yeah, you need me more than I need you
Cause you need me to build the wall to keep us away
If given the chance to crawl from the shadows
When given the freedom to be who I am
I’ll carry my load
Like I carry your laundry
Like I carry your children
Like I carry my own
And you’ll need me, you’re gonna need me
You’ll need me to work beside you strong one day
Yeah, you’ll need me just as much as I’ll need you
Cause together we’ll build a bridge to a fair and better way
Together we’ll build a bridge to a fair and better way
Together we’ll build a bridge
