The Shadows of the Night

The Shadows of the Night lyrics

The Shadows of the Night

Lorry
I come to dig a man out.
I come to dig a man out.
Seventeen years; buried alive.
Buried alive. And i must dig him out.
I hope he cares
To be recalled to life

Manette
I cannot say, for sure.

Lorry
The shadows of the night
Are quickly closing in.
I can hear a muffled cry come from within.
And will he know i've come?
Will he want to be saved?
When i come dig someone out of the grave? Buried how long?

Manette
Almost eighteen years.

Lorry
You had abandoned any hope?

Manette
Long ago.

Lorry
You know that you're recalled to life?

Manette
They tell me so.

Lorry
I pray to god you care to live...

Manette
I just don't know...

Lorry
The night shadows.
The night shadows
Call to me.
Set him free
From the grave;
To the light.
Can i save him from
The night?
The night shadows
Call to me
I hope you care
To be recalled to life...

Manette
I cannot say.
I hope it's true. Will i one day
Thank god for you?
