I've been watching you from afar and I know you so well,
We talk in whispers in the grip of the night, it's a secret we can't tell.
You've got the eyes to see through the world over to my side,
I've got your hand in the darkness and you can confide.
They don't know who we are,
I'm not the devil they want me to be
If you look up at the stars,
You'll see, little one, it's just you and me.
They don't know what they do,
They've built their house on the sand.
But I always find you
Holding hands with the Shadow Man.
I've been holding years in my palm and I just can't let go,
They tried to burn me in the fire they set but I sustained in the snow.
You've always got my words in your throat and my thoughts in your head
if you need them at all,
I've got your hand in the darkness and you'll never fall.
They keep on praying but they're already dead,
They keep on praying but they're already dead to me,
Even God's on my side.
