I go out walking
Early in the mornings
You’re probably sleeping
Or still hungover.

Quiet evenings
Reading in the twilight
Of all the things
That cross my mind.

We’re getting older
I hear your grandpa died.
I read it in the paper,
Caught mem by surprise.
It made me think of when
I lost mine.
When I asked, you said that
You were fine.

And I would not be surprised to find
You’d forgotten my name by now.
No, I could not see, as time went by
My shadow fading out.

Tough as nails,
I test it all the time
I made my bed
And then I lie

I try to say
What’s mine is mine
But it’s just another
Storyline.

I’ve tried to think
What happened to the fire?
It’s burning out
Made me into a liar.
Made me feel like
I’d been shooting shadows
Letting all that really mattered
Go.

And I would not be surprised to find
You’d forgotten my name by now.
No, I could not see as time went by
My shadow fading out.
