"See Me In Shadow" as written by and David M Martijn/wessels Westerholt....
Standing in the shadow of our lies
To hide our imperfections
Doing anything we can to hide
Eyes wide open but still blind
To see what really matters
And insecurity won't go
See me in shadows

Standing by the ruins of your soul
That cries for some more meaning
Wondering when you have
Become so cold

So cold
And all the pictures of your past are gone
So cold, so cold
Forget yourself
And who you are
Another life is not that far

Standing by the paintings of your dreams
But you have awoken
And all the purples and the greens
Have turned to black
And the ruins of your soul
Have died, no more meaning
I wonder when you have
Become so cold

So cold
And all the pictures of your past are gone
So cold, so cold
Forget yourself
And who you are
Another life is not that far

Not that far

    General CommentIt sounds like the lyrics are trying to convey someone who is empty, with low self-esteem.

    Its kind of a blan, obvious observation but no one has made a comment on this song yet. and its a great song. =]

    General CommentThis is a sad song is about grieving for the loss of one's dreams (or loved ones), and how they make life meaningless and cold.

    "Standing by the paintings of your dreams
    But you have awoken
    And all the purples and the greens
    Have turned to black
    And the ruins of your soul
    Have died
    No more meaning
    I wonder when you have
    Become so cold."

    The video shows Charlotte in a wedding gown mourning the loss of her groom and possibly contemplating suicide by drowning. I wish there was something positive at the end.
