Riding up the alley in the rain No lights to show the way How could this ever be their home? Through the darkness you could only see A giant shadow that swells to be A house where evil rules at night And the shadows at the gate, they seemed to be alive Yeah, the shadows at the gate – alive Everything inside was left untouched Except for what the rats had got And the dust of time that showed its mark. Armed with candlelight and open eyes Through the dark they fought their way 'Til every room was lit again.... And the house began to breathe, it seemed to be alive Yeah, the house began to breathe – alive As the candlelight began to fade And Jonathan said, "Let's go to bed." The fireplace had ceased to burn.... Both were fast asleep before the dawn, Dreaming...Dreaming.... And they did not know about the shadow.... Yeah, the shadow on the wall, It really came alive Yeah, the shadow on the wall! Sunrise!
