"Shadow" as written by Maria Mena and Thomas Wohni....
I wish you'd see it in my face
But I'm caught up in those long lost days
And how can I even make you see
When I don't even know me

Following my footsteps home
This time I'm walking all alone
Trying hard to be someone I don't even know

I feel like a shadow
Walking behind who you think I am
Just like my shadow
Wanting to see the sun again
I'm your shadow
And I'm lost
Just like my shadow

Thought I'd like me bright and new
But my candle burned out long before you
Now I'm the one whose got to pay
I'm finding me a better day

Following my footsteps home
This time I'm walking all alone
Trying to be someone I don't even know

I feel like a shadow
Walking behind who you think I am
Just like my shadow
Wanting to see the sun again
I'm your shadow
And I'm lost
Just like my shadow

Sun light is my life
I can hardly comprehend
Sun light is my life
I cannot understand

I feel like a shadow
Walking behind who you think I am
Just like my shadow
Wanting to see the sun again
I'm your shadow
And I'm lost
Just like my shadow

    General CommentI wish you'd see it in my face
    But I'm caught up in those long lost days
    And how can I even make you see
    When I don't even know me

    Following my footsteps home
    This time I'm walking all alone
    Trying hard to be someone I don't even know

    I feel like a shadow
    Walking behind who you think I am
    Just like my shadow
    Wanting to see the sun again
    I'm your shadow
    And I'm lost
    Just like my shadow

    Thought I'd like me bright and new
    But my candle burned out long before you
    Now I'm the one whose got to pay
    I'm finding me a better day

    Following my footsteps home
    This time I'm walking all alone
    Trying to be someone I dont even know

    I feel like a shadow
    Walking behind who you think I am
    Just like my shadow
    Wanting to see the sun again
    I'm your shadow
    And I'm lost
    Just like my shadow

    Sun light is my life
    I can hardly comprehend
    Sun light is my life
    I cannot understand

    I feel like a shadow
    Walking behind who you think I am
    Just like my shadow
    Wanting to see the sun again
    I'm your shadow
    And I'm lost
    Just like my shadow


    **This is about being something that someone else wants you to be but you eventually realize that you don't even know who you are anymore. You thought that you'd like who you've become but you don't and you're trying to find yourself again. When you're by yourself, you realize that you're so caught up in this other self and you're confused of why you've let yourself get so far gone...

    General CommentI agree with guitarfreak on the meaning. I think it's a lovely song. When I put on this song I just have to sing along! I can kind of relate to the song as well, because I always try to please everyone else and stuff...
