shadows

trying to find time to live life
but i'm trying to understand how you're still here
cause what's the point in leaving if i don't leave you behind
i close my eyes and somehow you reappear

cause hiding from you is like hiding from me
you're my shadow on a sunny day
i need a tree to lose you for once so for seconds i'll feel free
shelter from my shadow gives me some restful peace

funny how just trying to feel sane
can push us past the point of insanity
the corners of my mind reflect repetitions of your name
as i try to define the difference between my best friend and enemy

no one told me
you'd forever find a way to hold me down
but you don't control me
the end of this forever's starting now
