Shadow And A Dancer - The Fray


www.last.fm
by Simon Cleary 

The Experience: Do you remember when our love was so perfect? When we were close like a shadow and a dancer? Love has changed, we have stayed. We've never been so in love.


Video: Still waiting.


The meaning of The Fray Shadow And A Dancer is love grown old. Turn on the TV, see perfect bodies acting out intense love. Slade sings to his wife about their early love - do you remember when we would float, in perfect time like a shadow and a dancer. Then he sings about what's changed - The summer thrill is gone. Does that mean love is less? No - We've never been so in love, like a shadow and a dancer. Our bodies are a memory, the one of the other. 
How to keep love fresh even as you both grow older? Never believe you've already solved the mystery of love. That's the meaning of Slade's line "We are looking for the answer." His love is still an adventure. [And congratulations to their first baby!]

Ask Yourself: Do I believe love grows better with age, even when the summer thrill is gone?


LYRICS:
Hello old friend
Do you remember when
We would float on the summer wind
And fall back to earth again

Hello love
Remember that touch
That skin on skin rush
Sweeping after both of us

Like a shadow and a dancer
We were looking for the answers
Keeping perfect time
Like a shadow and a dancer
We know the summer thrill is gone
But we’ve never been so in love
Like a shadow and a dancer

We have stayed
Like the Cascade Mountain range
And Pacific Ocean waves
Some things never change

And it’s you and me
And our bodies are a memory
We’re turning ever so slowly
In the candlelight trembling

Like a shadow and a dancer
We were looking for the answers
Keeping perfect time
Like a shadow and a dancer
We know the summer thrill is gone
But we’ve never been so in love
Like a shadow and a dancer
No, we’ve never been so in love
Like a shadow and a dancer

A shadow and a dancer
We are looking for the answer
Keeping perfect time
Like a shadow and a dancer
We know summer thrill is gone
But we’ve never been so in love

Oh, we’ve never
Shadow and a dancer
Looking for the answer
