Verse 1

Hello, how are you, it's been a while.

I ask you quietly with a nervous smile.

You try to make small talk, keep a poker face.

I tell you I just moved, I'm new at this place.

Verse 2

You're so nice, offer to show me around.

I tell myself, what's lost can't be found.

But my heart starts to dance in our afterglow.

I tell myself, all that's left of us is a shadow.

Pre- Chorus

The shadow of our love keeps trailing behind,

Bringing back memories to my mind.

It's like we're a tape stuck forever on rewind.

You're the chapter in the book that's underlined.

Chorus

And I try to stay in the dark,

Away from the light,

So that there's no shadow,

No feelings to fight.

But at the end of the day,

It never goes away.

Wherever I go,

I'm stuck forever with your shadow.

Verse 3

You order your favorite orange smoothie.

You're still stiff; you're not looking at me.

And I can't drag my eyes away from the ground.

Chanting to myself, what's lost can't be found.

Pre- Chorus

The shadow of our love keeps trailing behind,

Bringing back memories to my mind.

It's like we're a tape stuck forever on rewind.

You're the chapter in the book that's underlined.

Chorus

And I try to stay in the dark,

Away from the light,

So that there's no shadow,

No feelings to fight.

But at the end of the day,

It never goes away.

Wherever I go,

I'm stuck forever with your shadow.

Bridge

No, no, no, I'll not go down that road again.

I won't hope and pray for it to happen.

I bet by now you're seeing somebody else.

I don't wanna buy the story my stupid heart tells...

I'd tell you quietly that I miss you.

But somehow I know that you don't miss me too.

But in my head, you tell me, hey I want you to know.

You're everything to me, we can be more than a shadow- oh- oh.

Chorus

And I try to stop feeling the spark,

I try so hard to stay in the dark,

So that there's no shadow,

But I have nowhere to go.

At the end of the day,

It never goes away.

No matter where I go,

I'm stuck forever with your shadow.

Verse 4

Hello, I should go, it's been a while.

I say goodbye with a nervous smile.

I stare at you one last time, at your angel face.

I know I'll be moving again, to some other place.
