Standing In Your Shadow

You’re so low.

You’re almost to the bone,

Everything you’ve ever seen is standing in your shadow

Memories sunk like stones.

 

Don’t turn away

Don’t turn on me,

Your shadow clings to everything.

Don’t make me another one.

What’s behind you isn’t gone.

 

So thin.

Everyone gets under your skin,

You think that you can cover them with your retiring shadow

But in the dark the memories will start to sting.

 

Don’t turn away

Don’t turn on me,

Your shadow clings to everything.

Don’t make me another one.

What’s behind you isn’t gone.

 

It’s all in your shadow,

Carry it with you wherever you go.

It’s not always what you see

But it’s all lying there beneath.

 

Don’t turn away

Don’t turn on me,

Your shadow clings to everything.

Don’t make me another one.

What’s behind you isn’t gone.

 

Your shadow won’t let go,

So don’t let go of me.
