Shadows (2011)

I swear I just saw a shadow move across the wall,

Out of the corner of my eye...

Granted, I was a million miles away,

Granted, I was lost in thought of you,

Trying to figure you out,

Make sense of it all,

My favorite puzzle,

My favorite mind game,

...-So maybe I didn't really just see that shadow,

Moving across the wall like that.

Maybe it was just my imagination,

Getting away from me again,

Running away from me again...

My mind,

Always running back to you....

It's getting late darling,

I'm sober,

For once,

And yet I still see shadows,

Shadows in my mind,

Shadows flitting across the wall,

On the edge of my sight...

I think of you always,

Night,

And day...

And increasingly so...

I find myself watching shadows climb over the wall,

Don't look too close...

Don't get too close, 

Shadows and thoughts,

They're combining somewhere in my mind,

Making a black hole...

Something to suck up everything alive,

Everything that ever made since before you,

It's all gone, 

Leaving me now...

Moving as fast as those shadows on the wall...

Imminent doom looms, just up ahead,

Sharp corner,

Stay on track,

Keep your eyes on the road,

I could flip this car right now,

And I'd still be thinking of you,

While I'm sailing through the air...

And as I lay dying,

Staring at the roof of this car,

I can see shadows gathering,

Gathering strength, 

At the edge of my vision....

Shadows that will come to claim me,

Sometime soon...

...And you were still on my mind...

Can't drink you away, 

Can't never ever forget about you,

You,

You...

Always on my mind...
