(verse 1) 
I was counting on you being there, 
Hoping you would shield me from the glare. 
(Refrão) 
 (2x) 
Shadow me - 
I have lived in shadows all my life. 
(verse 2) 
I've been waiting an eternity 
For tonight to spread it's arms and comfort me. 
(Refrão) 
 (2x) 
Shadow me - 
I have lived in shadows all my life. 
(bridge) 
Things we did together yesterday, 
Feels more like twenty years ago, 
Oh, baby, I never lied - 
I told you my hands were tied 
All the time. You said "That'll be fine." 
(verse 3) 
Like the mariners from ages past, 
I steer my way through trackless seas by the light of stars. 
(Refrão) 
 (2x) 
Shadow me - 
I have lived in shadows all my life. 
Won't you be my shadow?
