Shadows In Red Lyrics
Lookin out the window of pain
I see clearly now your face
Something so pure
Something I'm sure will be lost
I'm staring at the shadows in red
Sends me chills now
I see clearly everything except your face
I'm lonely scared to be lonely
Thought until death meant
My fears were safe within now they begin
To be lonely scared of the only
Thing I knew best so I thought I knew everything
Until now I see I'm lost and lonely
Shatters everything in my head consumes me
Blinded by one thing obsessed with the need to be loved
Screams become whispers instead assuming
I know I'm losing all the things closest to me
I'm lonely scared to be lonely
Thought until death meant
My fears were safe within
Now they begin to be lonely
Scared of the only thing I knew best
So I thought I knew everything
Until now I see I'm lost and lonely
Angels swirl around me
So now I know I'm not alone
Only scared to be lonely
Thought until death meant
My fears were safe within now they begin
To be lonely scared of the only
Thing I knew best so I thought I knew everything
Until now I see I'm lost and lonely

    General Commentits about a breakup. The other person was his crutch, and his fears were kept inside. And now the he is alone, he is lost and lonely. That person kept all those things inside.

    General CommentHmm, I was under the impression that this is a song of mourning for a lost loved one, but who knows.

    General CommentI kind of felt a bit that it is the realization that someone you've been with for a long time and felt secure and happy with might not be the one. The loneliness comes from being the only half of the relationship that feels this way.

    General CommentThis i believe is about a marriage that fell apart or one of them died ("I thought until death meant" kind of like until death do we part) but I think it is an amazing song. Really it is a great song to try to cope with your feelings something about it makes me happy. Sevendust does make amazing acoustic songs I must admit I like there acoustic sometimes a lot better than there super heavy even though I do love it.
