My take on Stones-y rock and roll with a "Gimme Shelter" counter vocal by soulful Shawn Wiggins, a local LA legend.

lyrics

First time I laid eyes on you, you looked so lost and lonely,

The warning carved into your heart said, “Invitation Only,"

I could not wait to heed that call,

Now I can’t wait for night to fall, ‘cuz

Old sins cast long shadows,

Your memory clings to me like a second skin;

When that sun sinks low, down below,

I hear love’s dead bones rattle,

Old sins, cast long shadows.

Now, you promised me devotion, Honey, I swore that I’d be true,

Just goes to show what restlessness and reckless youth can do,

For every kiss and sweet caress,

We sent a thousand to their deaths, now

Old sins cast long shadows,

Your memory clings to me like a second skin;

When that sun sinks low, down below,

I hear love’s dead bones rattle,

Old sins, cast long shadows.

Old sins cast long shadows.

To tell the truth now, Honey, you still got a line on me,

And when the light gets funny, I’m as dark as a fool can be.

They say one day your Maker, will all your sins reveal,

On that Day of Judgment, there’s nothing to conceal,

Now, if that day should never come,

I’m gonna keep my back turned to the sun, where

Old sins cast long shadows,

Your memory clings to me like a second skin;

When that sun sinks low, down below,

I hear love’s dead bones rattle,

Old sins, they cast long shadows, old sins, they cast long shadows.

Old sins, long shadows, old sins, long shadows,

Old sins, long shadows, old sins, long shadows,

Hey, hey, hey- that’s what I say,

Old sins.
