I have been working on these tunes for years. Some of them (Easy Street, for instance) go back to the 70's. I recently reconnected with the amazing Frog - Mark T Jordan, currently on tour with Van Morrison - who was one of the original members of the Edison Electric Band. It was truly wonderful to w

Shadow Dance
Lyrics
There's a fire burning in the night
There?s a devil dancing in the shadows
I can hear him laughin but he keeps just out of sight
He?s got the power ? I?m under his control
The fire spreads into my heart
I try to break the string but he knows I can?t
The rhythm keeps me dancing, tearin me apart
I feel like I?m a puppet
Doin that shadow dance


You ain?t gonna his picture in the paper
You never gonna see the man?s face on the TV
If you wanna catch him better get in line
There?s a place right behind me
I?m gonna put him in the spotlight
Everybody?s gonna see him on the news tonight
I?m gonna flush and the reason why I?m rushin
Is he?s never gonna change ? he?s never gonna do right
I got a bird dog, I got a bloodhound, I got a mini-bot searchin the web
I?m gonna get him he ain?t never gonna get away
Put your money down
I?ll pay

Shadow Dance ? the devil made me do it
I just can?t help myself
Shadow Dance ? you got to help me through it
I?m on the road to hell
Shadow Dance ? the devil made me do it
I just can?t help myself
Shadow Dance ? you got to help me through it
I?m on the road to hell

The fire spreads into my bones
I keep on tryin but I can?t break free
The devil?s got me dancin and I?m not alone
The rhythm shakes my body and I stomp my feet
He?s got me on the move tonight
I try to lose him but he takes me by the hand
His laughter echoes in the midnight sky
I?m just a puppet
Doin that shadow dance

I?m gonna put him on the front page
He?s been livin on credit but it?s time to pay
He had a good run, he had a lotta fun
But he can?t hide in the modern age
I?m gonna take him for a walk in my neighborhood
I?m gonna get my boys gonna do him good
He?s gonna break down cause he?s livin in my town
No more dancing in the shadows

Shadow Dance ? the devil made me do it
I just can?t help myself
Shadow Dance ? you got to help me through it
I?m on the road to hell
Shadow Dance ? the devil made me do it
I just can?t help myself
Shadow Dance ? you got to help me through it
I?m on the road to hell

Feed the fire
