"Shading" as written by and Oliver Herbert Philip Labonte....
I've seen through the shading
And down to what's within
Reaching you will feel me

Lost and alone
You said I was what you were looking for
So why do I feel so empty

And it seemed so real
Pulled from my grasp taken away
Am I nothing in your eyes
Reaching out I feel
You were pulling away, never letting me in
I am nothing in your eyes

Day in day out I see you live your life again
A fool I stand here in waiting
In letters words and pictures
You profess your love to me
And to the last they were lies

The malice I should feel for you deceitfulness
Some how always escapes me
And in the shading
Between the words you said to me
I know I'd be left empty

    General CommentTo me this song is about unrequited love. He fell in love with this girl and she said she likes him but apparently doesn't want to be with him for some reason.

    "am i nothing in your eyes?"
    (he wonders if she cares about him at all)

    "the malice i should feel for your deceitfulness
    somehow always escapes me"
    (he feels like he should hate her for what she has done to him but he can't find it in him to stop loving her)
