Purple Shadows
Seasick Steve Lyrics


Them purple shadows
Fall across
And they soften
Everything they touch
And they give me
A place to hide
And the moonlight
All around
Surely gonna wash
These troubles down
And cool the awful burningness
Of love

I'm talkin' 'bout the burningness
Yeah, the burningness
Oh, the burningness
Yeah, the burningness
We will cool down
The awful burningness
Of love

I hear your echo
On the run
Them damn tears
They start to come
And they will dry me up
And I'll simply
Blow away
But while I'm blowin'
In the wind
Surely gonna feel again
Your soft skin
And remember
The awful burningness
Of love

I'm talkin' 'bout the burningness
Yeah, the burningness
Oh, the burningness
Yeah, the burningness
We will cool down
The awful burningness
Of love

And the moonlight
All around
Surely gonna wash
These troubles down
And cool the awful burningness
Of love

I'm talkin' 'bout the burningness
Yeah, the burningness
Oh, the burningness
Yeah, the burningness
We will cool down
The awful burningness
Of love
We will cool down
The awful burningness
Of love

This stuff is 1000000xs better than anything pop stars are putting out now days.

Andrew Knapp

That's because he's not a pop star, doesn't play pop, and would probably be dreadful at it. You can't compare apples and oranges.

Steve is a real poet. He's gotten me through some darker times.

Fritz Ritzinger

So true.

Bernd Kohler

How does he do it...yes indeed. Steve is unique. When I have a bad day, Steve his music and humor gets me out it

Thaline Briers

I started listening to John Hartford and this came on while I was cleaning house. I ran across the house tripping over my poor dog so that I could like this song. Soulful and beautiful.
