I don’t wanna sigh.
There’s so many,
Too many,
Friends to be made;
Days to enjoy,
And games to be played...

But my shadow does.

I don’t wanna cry.
There’s so many,
Too many,
Excuses to laugh;
Same with a smile,
‘Til others smile back...

But my shadow does.

I don’t wanna lie.
There’s so many,
Too many,
Ways it’ll hurt;
Trusts it’ll break,
Buried in dirt...

But my shadow does.

I don’t wanna die.
There’s so many,
Too many,
Reasons to live;
Relations to build,
And sins to forgive…

But my shadow does.
