"Shadows" as written by Annie Hart, Erika Spring Forster and Heather Anne D'angelo....
You tell me
That its getting better
But every time that we say goodnight [goodnight goodnight]

I'm haunted by your eyes
And how long they've been crying

Don't tell me
About a bad reaction
Don't tell me that you plan to hide [to hide to hide]
Reasoning aside

I'm moving on
I hope your coming with me
I hope your coming with me

Anyone can answer their own questions
All you have to do is look inside [inside inside]
You know it inside
You know it will be alright [alright alright]
You know its alright

I'm moving on
I hope your coming with me
'Cause I'm not strong
Without you

Don't blame it on
Your shadows

'Cause I know all
About you

    General CommentAbsolutely beautiful song, both lyrically and vocally. I especially like the verse "I'm moving on/I hope your coming with me/cause I'm not strong/without you". It touches me that she is fair enough to herself to do what is right for her and "move on" from whatever situation they may be in, but still be able to be honest and admit that she needs the other person to complete who she is without letting that hold her back. Amazing strength.

    General CommentThis song kind of relates to me at the moment. I believe the part, "I'm moving on, I hope you're coming with me" is directing towards moving on from what's been done. Maybe moving on from another bad situation, or habit. Very nice song.

    General CommentThe lyrics of this song speak for someone who is trying to be honest yet is subtly and concomitantly disingenuous about a budding relationship. Clearly both parties have a history and some baggage. However, the singer initially assumes a dominant position and emphatically tolerates the other person's erratic behavior under the assumption that he/she eventually will be able to join and connect emotionally with her. On one level, the singer seems to desire to impart some degree of self-assurance or direction in the other person to help mitigate his or her own problems in previously failed relationships, yet we are left with the feeling that the alluded reassurance only magnify doubts . . . Toward the end of the song, it becomes more obvious that the singer identifies with the struggles and turmoil of the other. She wishes for the other to move past his/her failed relationship(s), drop the baggage, and connect with her on a deeper level. However, the singer's intentions are somewhat self-motivated and a reflection of her own deep rooted insecurities (nice mirroring). Although she is in a better place than the other person is, she still pines for the other person and needs validation . . .

    General CommentTo me, this song is really about someone moving on in a relationship
    but still wanting to remain friends with the person they are leaving.
    The lyrics are fantastic
