Lyrics

Shadow
© 2005 Jason Paul Johnston
This shadow is pea soup.
This shadow is over, not under.
This shadow expects me to step a little slower.
Slips up unnoticed, creeps up unseen it covers my eyes, from behind, when I'm weak.
Whispers things in my ear, of which I will not speak.

Knocks on my door to see if I'm alone.
Then invades like there's no one home.
Sits down at my table, like it's never eaten before.

You say the sun is up and the day is swell.
I'm sure the silver lining is somewhere as well.
Just ignore all the darkness, that falls around.
Come on just turn that frown right upside down.
Can't you see it's cloudy and the chance of rain is one hundred percent and now it's flooded again.
With long periods of hazy sky and shorter days now, I think I'll just stay inside.

Sell me a miracle, peddle me drugs.
Give me a cure and I'll gladly hook on.
But don't give prescriptions I didn't request.
Enough pop psychology, just leave me to rest.
Ask me now if I'm happy, if I'm getting by?
Nice of you to wonder two weeks after I died.
You're only coming round now because you've got no one else.
Well then leave me alone right here by myself.

But I'm alright, I'm just alright - So don't you cry, I'm not gonna die
I just might find a way to survive - If I could just get further inside
