Shot In The Dark

from by Miller Carr

/

lyrics

The rosy fingered dawn tossed
The moon like a coin
Rolling through paradise lost
Waiting to rejoin

Maybe I'm still standing
Underneath these fading stars
Wishing for one to fall down dying
Like an arrow through a heart

That will never miss its mark
That will never miss its mark
That will never miss its mark
A shot in the dark

I leave a candle burning
All through the night
You might pass by some evening
And be drawn to the light

Remember how we used to waltz
Beneath our gleaming infinite arc
That was held up by a dream we had
Until we woke up alone in the dark

How did we ever stray so far
Planets explode then drift apart
You know the arrow missed its mark
A shot in the dark
