Shadows

Dark surrounds us all
Turn and face the place where you
Came from through it all
To feel you’re in the race
You always meant to be
A player in the scheme
But life is playing games
And shattering your dream

When shadows fall into your life
You question what it means to be
A soul who dies beneath the knife
Falling from the cherry tree
When shadows fall into your life
You start to feel you cannot see

Your back’s against the wall
Society has told you that you
Should be standing tall
Instead you’re standing small
The shadows that you see
Are flickers in the flame
To you they came to be
A way to end the pain

When shadows fall into your life
You question what it means to be
A soul who dies beneath the knife
Falling from the cherry tree
When shadows fall into your life
You start to feel you cannot see

Dark surrounds us all
Turn and hide your face
The tear stains tumble down
Dissolving any trace of the
Time you walked the earth
And gently tried to be
A man of human worth
Behind a legacy

When shadows fall into your life
You question what it means to be
A soul who dies beneath the knife
Falling from the cherry tree
When shadows fall into your life
You start to feel you cannot see
