In Your Shadow

lyrics

I spend all of my days
thinking there's got to be a way
for me to shake your memory from my brain.
You've haunted me for years,
causing blood, sweat, and tears,
and, at the end, all that I feel is shame.

And what do I have to show?
Where did all that time go?

But what you don't know
is how much I'll miss you, darling,
and before I go,
I'll walk for now in your shadow.

I've wasted so much soul
letting heartbreak take control
of every single waking thought.
Like an addict on the jones
I could feel it in my bones,
in my own head was the war I fought.

And what do I have to show?
Where did all of those years go?

But what you don't know
is how much I'll miss you, darling.
And before I go,
I'll walk for now in your shadow.
