[Verse 1]
Lying in my room quite late one night
Something I could see made me check my sight
Something very strange made me walk outside
So I walked outside like this real fool
Nothing to lose and I knew I should
Ever since she told me that I was no good
It was no good, I knew it would be...

[Chorus]
Only a shadow, only a shadow
Only a shadow but she looks like you
Only a shadow, only a shadow
Only a shadow but she looks like you
She looks like you

[Verse 2]
It's the time of year when the flower dies
It's the kind of night when the ghost will rise
Searching for a girl with the dancing eyes
Who could stay all day but leave next night
Instinct should have told me it'll work out right
Now I'm very nervous, I leave on my light
But I walk outside, I walk outside, but it's...

[Chorus]
Only a shadow, only a shadow
Only a shadow but she looks like you
Only a shadow, only a shadow
Only a shadow but she looks like you
Only a shadow, only a shadow
Only a shadow but she looks like you
Only a shadow, only a shadow
Only a shadow but she looks like you
She looks like you

[Verse 3]
Listen to her voice going 'round my head
Comes to me at night when I'm in my bed
Could be going crazy, it's what they said
And what they said is I'm no good
Told me to leave, you really think I should
Haunted by your face everywhere I look
But I walk outside and I walk to find it's...

[Chorus]
Only a shadow, only a shadow
Only a shadow but she looks like you
Only a shadow, only a shadow
Only a shadow but she looks like you
Only a shadow, only a shadow
Only a shadow but she looks like you

[Outro]
Shadow
Only a shadow
Only a shadow
Only a shadow
