I glanced upon the ground today
I noticed something
It followed me along the way
A figure of grey
Impersonating every move I make

For now we'll call it my shadow
And will you replace it
So you'll be with me everywhere I go?

Sentences of yours
Running throughout my head
Searching for a chance
To catch my breath
A neverending dream
You'll become a part of me
Day or night, dark or light
You'll be taking over that thing
Called my shadow

What happens on the days when
The clouds come in
And fade away my shade
That's our cue, babe
We'll run away to a place
Where the sun always shines

That not even time could erase
you're my weakness, babe
But you give me strength
I need you
I need you like the blood in my veins

Sentences of yours
Running throughout my head
Searching for a chance
To catch my breath
A neverending dream
You'll become a part of me
Day or night, dark or light
You'll be taking over that thing
Called my shadow

    General Commentit's about a girl who likes a guy
    and she wants to get together with him.
    but it hasn't happened yet and
    she's referring to him as a shadow becuz they will always be together and be close.

    Song Meaningi must say i know alot of people think this is about a guy but i think its about GOD
    if you really think about it
    you know always your shadow .
    there everywhere you go
    i think she talking about the day she gave her life to god.

    General CommentI doubt the theory about God...because why would she refer to God as "babe"? Otherwise, though, I see it.

    General CommentIt's such a good song:

    That not even time could erase
    you're my weakness, babe
    But you give me strength
    I need you
    I need you like the blood in my veins

    Shes basically talking about how this guy has so much power over her and how without him she's weak. And she needs him like the blood in her veins. Because without that you can't survive.
