What? You say you're through with me
I'm not through with you
We've had what others might call love
You say it's over now,
What's done, what's through?
You can't stay away, you need me
I need you

When the fire starts the pain's too much
For your mind
You need attention, what's good is only mine
I can cure the hunger that burns in your heart
Just come to me
I'll take you home
We'll walk in the shadows
By day we'll live in a dream
We'll walk in the shadows

You say you don't feel safe alone tonight
Cause you feel the pressure building in your head
Our secret's safe for one more night
But when the morning comes remember
I'll be with you

We'll walk in the shadows
By day we'll live in a dream
We'll walk in the shadows
One day you'll be with me
If only you believe...

    Song MeaningAccording to a Chris Degarmo interview, at the time of Rage for Order, the whole band was really into the Vampire Chronicles books. Walk in the Shadows is indeed about a vampire who's infactuated with a woman and trying to convince her to join him, to cross over to the dark side of vampirism.

    General CommentI've always thought it's about a vampire stalking his prey and encouraging her to join him. "By day we'll live in a dream" Walk In The Shadows? Seems obvious to me.
    I've never heard of it being a cover. There was another song on Rage For Order that apparently is a cover: "Gonna Get Close To You". It deals with the same subject, strangely enough. But, then they did go on to do one of the best concept albums of all time.
    I cant wait for the next chapter! Ryche'N Roll!!

    General CommentI agree with NightRider - this one makes me think of vampires -- along with London. I read somewhere that the song (either this or London, don't recall which) was influenced by Interview with the Vampire, but that may not be true.

    General CommentPretty self-explanatory. The song is told from the viewpoint of a stalker talking to his intended victim. It is actually a cover of a relatively unknown female artist whose name escapes me.
