SHADOWS AT NIGHT

This song was written after Wes lost his wife Gina to ovarian cancer and the emotional loss was almost too much to bear. The emptiness inside almost completely removed the love from his heart. This is a country sounding song in the likes of Johnny Cash and is pure, raw emotion. This song is for anyone who has ever lost someone or something so close they felt they were unable to continue life.

LYRICS:
Every day, the sun makes it way, across a beautiful sky
But as the sun goes down, I look for the light
I am blinded by shadows at night

Every day, people make their way, though their bountiful lives
But was the world goes round, I look for the light
I am blinded by shadows at night

This world keeps turning, its leaving me somewhere behind
What am I learning, from dried up tears that I've cried?
Just that my eyes have grown weary, blinded by the shadows at night

Every night, the moon takes it flight, across a beautiful sky
But its just a reflection, that isn't the light
I'm still blinded by shadows at night

I'm still blinded by shadows at night
