Shadow in the Shade

lyrics

Once again he slips away
Like a shadow in the shade
You know I wouldn't even whisper his name
If you don't want me to stay

Darkness will conceal his shape
Like a shadow in the shade
You know you wouldn't have to suffer in vain
If you don't want me to stay I won't
But please tell me

It's a lonely direction, not to mention
When the demons come for you
The dreams you knew will hurt to
But I want to console you, not control you
You don't have to be someone
For me, the past, or anyone

If he comes I'll hide away
Like a shadow in the shade
I wouldn't hesitate to make my escape
If you don't want me to stay I'll go
But you need me

Don't you know that?
I could never.
