about

Silhouettes and Shadows was almost a song that never happened. I wrote the song and had pretty much decided it was not very good until my sister Jo Alderman McWilliams heard it and loved it. I am also a big Dan Fogelberg fan. I had the privilege of seeing him on his Solo Acoustic Tour in 2003 so I was shocked and saddened to hear of his death. The death of the much beloved Tim Russert was equally sad. It was the empty chair on Meet the Press that gave me the metaphor for the lyrical content of the song. The imagery was as sad as anything I had ever seen on TV.

lyrics

Lyrics

Silhouettes and shadows fall across the room,
Sunday morning 10 AM the month of June.
Ashen faces lined with pain, seem to play a sad refrain.
Bereft of joy we sit and stare at an empty chair.
Bereft of joy we sit and stare at an empty chair.

Silhouettes and shadows fall across her face.
Bitter tears and a broken heart seem out of place.
Tragedy on a summer day, We try to wish the time away.
Bereft of joy we sit and stare at an empty chair.
Bereft of joy we sit and stare at an empty chair.
At an empty chair... at an empty chair...
