Ev'rything in nature has a meaning that is clear to all,
Hearts like flowers kissed by the rain,
Bloom when love comes to you again;
When the storm has passed then comes the rainbow to tell you it's o'er;
Then comes the sunshine which glows to love time,
That's when you'll hear true love's call
Yes, when the soft shadows fall.

When the shadows fall
All around us all
And the one you care for is beside you therefore ,
When the shadows fall
Heart to heart will call
Then you'll know who loves you,
When the shadows all.
