"Shadow of a Soul" as written by Salvatore P. Erna, James Shannon Larkin, Tony Rombola and Rob Merrill....
Anywhere I go, anything I try
Anyone I love is compromised

Everyone I see, staring on back at me
Why can't you let me be

Oh, so far from home being shallow and alone
And why can't you see its tearing away what I used to be
I'm a shadow of a soul

I don't know how to run, I don't know where to hide.
The old me is dead and gone inside

What will you think of me, when all that you'll ever see
Is only a part of the other me.

Oh, so far from home being shallow and alone
And why can't you see its tearing away what I used to be
I'm a shadow of a soul

Oh, I'm so far from home being shallow and alone
And why can't you see its tearing away what I used to be
I'm a shadow of a soul

    My InterpretationI know this feeling very well. when you turn a corner old traits and attitudes die and the people who knew you when you were the old you feel alienated and intimidated by this new you. they're dogging you and meanwhile, inside you're still learning what you want to think and feel and all the added pressure from everyone around you doesn't make you feel like you add up to much at all. if it were the other way around you know you'd be supportive and accepting of their life choices.

    gee.. personal, much? anywho. it's a lonely place. you make a choice for yourself and you're so lost but pushing on because you know that something's got to give and it may as well be you doing the giving.
