Always In Your Shafdow

Always in your shadow.
Always just behind you.
Always wanting,
Never getting.
Reaching out to find you.
Like a child who longs affection,
And a little glory.
Always in your shadow,
That’s my story.

Always in your shadow.
No one ever told me,
Reaching out can be so lonely,
Should nobody hold me.
If I sometimes crave attention,
Is that such a crime?
Always in your shadow,
All the time.

Like a voice without an echo,
I make no connection.
When I look into a mirror,
I see no reflection.

Always in your shadow,
Making do with second.
Watching while you take the limelight,
Waiting to be beckoned.
One day should you turn to find me,
I may not be there.
Always in your shadow,
Always.
Always in your shadow,
Always.
Always in your shadow,
Always, always.

(break)

Like a voice without an echo,
I make no connection.
When I look into a mirror,
I see no reflection.

Always in your shadow.
Dreaming of the day I
Take a step out from the darkness.
Would you let me? May I?
When the final words are written
I will still be found
Always in your shadow,
Always.
Always in your shadow,
Always.
Always in your shadow,
Always, always.
Always.
Always.
