F#m C#m (x4)

Why do I fear my shadow?
The one I?m scared to see
The dark side of my nature
A E G D/F# E
That always follow me

Why do I run so quickly?
To flee its evil grasp
Denying its existence
While drowning in its clasp

Bm D
If I could turn and face it
It would plague me never more
I?m scared of my sordid nature
Of what will come of me
Fears will motivate me to act with decency

But my lover is fear
Though hope?s the one I want
To save me from the shadow
And its seductive haunt

F#m C#m
