The Shadow
by: trista groulx

I am just the shadow
Of whoever I am with
Don't be ridiculous,
The person ahead is more important
I am just the shadow
I have no feelings
I have no cares
I have no heart to break
For you see, I am the shadow
Of the stronger person just ahead
Please pay not attention to me
She is the one you want to see
I am just the boring shadow
Don't even bother to look at me
I am just the dust kicked up
She's the oneyou want to see
Can't you see?
I am just the shadow
She knows my place
She told me my place
I should know my place
I am just the shadow
No, sorry, I said nothing
I meant nothing by my words
How could I feel that way?
I am just the show
I am not allowed to feel
I am not allowed to talk
And I will not rebel
For I know my place
I am just the shadow
You will soon forget this shadow
But I will remember you
I'm sure you'll remember her
No one remembers me
For I am just the shadow
