Song Description

4/4 New Orleans-style folk track with clarinet, crisp acoustic guitars, bass, brush drums, mellotron flutes and raspy male vocals. The song is a song of light-hearted pining, a playful quirky song with clever lyrics and charming music.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written and recorded for a short film originally in just a few hours. It since then became apart of Patrick Joseph's performing catalog because he enjoyed it.

Lyrics

Dear little shadow
Don't you drag me along
You know you've held my hopes and dreams
For so very long
You're sweet little specter
But you don't give me the time of day

Dear lady midnight won't you lend me a cure?
I've found that your communication's somewhat obscure
Despite all my troubles I'm convinced that you'll be mine someday

Dear apparition don't you pull on my chain
You know that my condition's bound to drive me insane
Confirm my suspicion that you just don't care to turn my way

Sweet maid of mystery won't you lend me a pill?
The coming and the going's fun but I've had my fill
Despite the closing curtain I am certain you'll be mine someday
