Shadowing You


I’m waiting here in the dark of night
Where darkening shadows chase the light
Hanging on to fraying threads
While glistening stars augment my dread

‘Cause time, you know, is running out
Of this fact, I have no doubt
With the deepening darkness of our betrayals
That left us broken and derailed

And you’re all I ever wanted
Now shadow puppets leave me haunted
Rerunning the scenes of our lives
Replaying our dreams and our lies

Tell me…
Do you remember the burning sun?
When our days where filled with love and fun
Do you remember the shadows creeping?
Before they left us cracked and weeping

Now I’m left alone and waiting
Where all our loving turned to hating
Chased away by unseen shadows
Driving us towards the gallows

Where we now hang, just you and I
Watching each other as we die
Tainted by a love so untouchable
Yet I can’t believe I’m that unlovable

So I’m waiting here in the dark of night
Where darkening shadows chase the light
Clinging onto these fraying threads
As you hang there, dangling, dead
