Don't Want to Be Your Shadow Lover

Poetry By: Tony Hart

Never settle for someone who already has someone.

Just like every time, it was at night when you kissed me

Feelings of love coursing through my memory

But as the hours ticked on, I knew we had to stop

And just like every time, my heart would just drop

Because before the sun awakens, you must go on

Right into the arms of the one you call your own.

I'm nothing but your shadow lover

A dirty sin you try to cover

The guilty pleasure that you hide in the dark

A faded flame of love left without a spark

But I no longer want to be your shadow lover

I'm not a dirty sin that should be covered.

The night belongs to us, the moon and every star

But under the sun, no one knows who we are

And I can't compete with someone that you say you love

Because 24/7, I know I'm not the one you're thinking of

I'll never be but your secret, covered by night

I'll never be but your secret, who'll never see the light.

And as I stare at my fading reflection, a new me I start to discover

I'm gonna walk in the day alone for I am no longer your shadow lover.
