Slippery Shadow

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 comin' and the goin's fun but I've had my fill
Despite the closing curtain I am certain you'll be mine someday
