Lyrics by Shoes

Silhouette (1991)
Composed by John Murphy

---

I used to be an invisible man
No responsibilities
Lived inside of a colorless shell
Took no charity

I drifted east to work the fields of my father's farm
Dreamless sleep after blistering days
Kept my churning heart
From being torn apart

And it's over, ooh the turnaround
Ooh the turnaround sound
It's over, ooh the turnaround
Ooh the turnaround found me far behind

I met a girl who liked to be taken for a ride
A reckless wink and the flick of her tongue
Made me burn inside

We spent some time all alone in the glen
Hungry for the taste
I laid her down, she smiled and said
'God, I live this place'
I leaned to kiss her face

And it's over, ooh the turnaround
Ooh the turnaround sound
It's over, ooh the turnaround
Ooh the turnaround found me far behind

Nobody feels like listening, nobody heeds the call
Everything that we reach for becomes so small

It took awhile to settle down
I wandered aimlessly
I'd feel the weight each setting sun
It never rose for me

I keep her letters hidden away
Where nothing else gets in
But every time I feel this way
I open them again
And let temptation win
