lyrics

There’s a shadow deep inside of me
It’s been there since I’ve ever known
No matter how bright the sun
It’s still looming when the morning comes
The season, the time of day
The shadow never fades away

There’s a shadow deep inside of me
But I’ll never admit that it’s there
Whilst it dampens every cheer
Soaks up every tear
Poisons every play
The shadow never fades away

There’s a shadow deep inside of me
It knows it’s place, but doesn’t know it’s name
No matter the pain I've caused
I’m gonna put you through the wars
I’ll lie and I’ll cheat to stay
The shadow never fades away

There’s a shadow deep inside of me
You’ve shone your beam of love upon it endlessly
You’ve plucked out every fear
Whispered in my ear
Don’t matter what you do or say
The shadow never fades away

There’s a shadow deep inside of me
I like to sit beneath it’s sullen boughs
And that’s where I retreat
I crave the taste of defeat
Living just to die someday
The shadow never fades away
