"Shadows" as written by and Alexander Gifford Rufus Wairevight....
Who will keep
Keep me in this evening
Even though
They are not here with me
I could be a great star
Still I'm far from happy
Finally
Feel the world around me
Fighting through
Fighting through the whiskey

I could be a great star
Still I'm far from happy

Out of these shadows
Comes the light
Shadows comes the light

You will keep
Keep me in this evening
Even though you are not here with me

I could be a great star
Still I'm far from happy
I could be a great star
I could be a great star
I could be a great star
I could be a great star

Out of these shadows
Comes a light
Out of these shadows
Comes a light
Shadows comes a light

    General CommentSelf-loathing song from Rufus about the potential that everyone has. The potential is not just to be a "great star" and to please others, but to come an understanding about what makes you happy. This can happen at any time - you can change your life if you choose, simply by coming out of the shadow and into the light. It's about accepting who you are and constantly being that person no matter who you're with or where you are.

    General CommentI love the music to this. The beat and the cello.

    As for the meaning- tubesocks said it well, imo.
