My broken heart,

My bleeding soul.

What is left of them now?

Where is the love,

Where is the trust,

That I once knew?

Now, as I lay in darkness,

I begin to wonder.

Who am I,

And where do I belong.

I know what I am.

I am a shadow.

A shadow hiding in a world of light.

I'm being pushed back,

And drowned out,

By all the otheres.

I don't mean a thing to them.

I'm just in their way.

The light is too bright,

Obliterating the shadows of my soul.

They're being lost,

Swallowed up by the blinding light.

But where is it that I really belong?

After thinking about it for so long,

I've dicovered,

That I've been asking myself the wrong question,

All along.

I know now,

That the question isn't,

"Where do I belong?"

But, "Do I belong?"

It seems there is no place in this world,

Where I can be accepted.

No one wants to put up with me,

Or my demons and shadows.

Who am I?

I don't even remember.

The person I used to be had died.

I'm sick of trying,

Sick of hurting.

I'm sick of all this pain.

Sure on the outside I'm smiling,

But inside I am dying.

But does anyone care?

Does anyone stop to wonder why?

No...

Because no one cares about a shadow.

For that's what I am.

Just a shadow of the past.

Something that no one cares about,

Or ever pays attention to.

I may follow you,

Werever you go,

But you can never hear me,

Feel me, or talk to me.

You can see me,

I can see you,

But we are two different world apart.

The sun is just too bright,

And the shadow is fading away.

Do you even remember me?

Have you forgotten your shadow so soon?

I have always been right behind you.

Watching over you,

While you never even spared me a glance.

Your shadow is disappearing,

And is being swallowed up by the light.

It's too late to save it now.
