"Shadows" as written by and Mark Edward Kozelek....
Sunset, I close my eyes
I pretend everything's alright
Drowning in anger from all these lies
I can't pretend everything's alright
Please don't let me fall forever
Can you tell me it's over?

There's a hate inside of me like some kind of master
I tried to save you, but I can't find the answer
I'm holding onto you, I'll never let go
I need you with me as I enter the shadows

Caught in the darkness, I go blind
But can you help me find my way out?
Nobody hears me, I suffer the silence
Can you tell me it's over now?

There's a hate inside of me like some kind of master
I tried to save you, but I can't find the answer
I'm holding onto you, I'll never let go
I need you with me as I enter the shadows

I'm holding onto you [Repeat x2]
There's a hate inside of me like some kind of master
I tried to save you, but I can't find the answer
I'm holding onto you, I'll never let go
I need you with me as I enter the shadows

    General CommentI can't believe I am the first person to comment on this great song. To me, this song is about a man who is in the middle of a breakup with his girlfriend (or vice versa) and the thoughts running through his head while she is saying that the relationship is over. The woman is trying to explain that things can't continue as they have, while the man acknowledges that none of this is really much of a surprise. The writing has been on the wall for quite some time.

    I've always attributed the line:

    "you ain't doing nothing that I don't already know
    when you hide your sorry head in pillows"

    as meaning that one person is admitting to some form of infidility, whether physical or emotional. The other person simply thinks, "this is not a surprise."
