Last night my shadow ran from me
It bowed its head in shame
I can't bear my reflection
I can't even write my name
Sometimes I choose to forget about you
Sometimes I choose to ignore the truth
Just like the man from chapter three
I tried to hide
From fleeing, familiar
White light
Sometimes I choose to forget about you
Sometimes I choose to ignore the truth
How sweet the name
How sweet the face
That I long to touch with dirty hands
I'm seeing sideways
Because I've fallen down again
And it's so hard to find my way

    how many times can i relate to this? waaaaay too many times. i do things, CHOOSING to ignore what i know. and i do stuff that makes me such a horrible person that not even my own shadow would want to be around me.

    awesome awesome song, God puts in my heart where he wants me to go, what he wants me to do, and it all seems sooo good, yet I still end up doing completely opposite for absolutely no reason, I get ashamed, this song is just so incredible...

    "just like the man from chapter three" (Genesis chapter 3), he's referring to Adam who tried to hide from God. I love the humility of the first verse of this song.
