You've been with me all the while
Just behind me
standing still

I've seen you in the summer sun
against the snow when cold winds come
and have never felt alone

I still cannot catch you
and yet we still chase our tails,
never calmly chasing after
places we will never be,
never know and never see

You kept me, and I know
when all the lights went out
you were my blanket of darkness

And now I must release you
I cannot catch you,
cannot keep you

Through my hands you've always slipped,
I call and you can no longer come
I run and you no longer chase

I guess we are blind and cannot see
or are unable to run anymore
time holds no place for darkness

Forever we'll be together
In the shadows of memories
that none can remember,
that do not run, nor sing
nor dream.

Late at night you'll still be there
- holding me, maybe
we cannot know what we cannot see

In this way you will be my potential,
ever-present, ever-gone,
ever-loving and never real

My
Fleeting
Shadow
