"Shadow of Myself"


(Verse 1)


I look at others actions,
And I look at mine.
I try to figure out how to define,
Myself as I read inbetween the lines.
Am I happy with life,
Am I really just fine.
Or am I just waiting,
For my moment to shine.
I try and look back at all the signs,
But confusion is all I seem to find.
Am I going insane,
Am I loosing my mind.
Do I see everything clear,
Or am I blind.
Will I keep moving forward,
Or will I fall behind.
Unanswered questions,
Seem to haunt my mind.
It's killing me to wonder,
Just exactly what I will find.


(Chorus)


Into the mirror,
I look deep inside.
Loo at these feelings,
That I always hide.
I feel like the old me,
Has long sense died.
If I said I knew myself,
Then I probably lied.
My motivation is gone.
I've lost the will to fly.
And even when i do,
I don't know how high.
I have so many questions,
In my mind.
I look at he shadow of myself,
And ask it why.


(Verse 2)


All the regrets,
And each mistake.
All the emotions,
That I faked.
Why do I wonder,
Everytime I wake,
Asking myself,
About the chocies I make.
I look at my reflection,
On the murky lake.
And realize everything,
Thats at stake.
And i can't forget,
The feelings just wont shake.
But I dont know anymore,
What path to take.
Should I follow my dreams,
Or just give in now.
I need to decide,
But I dont know how.
I want to acheive,
All this life will allow.
Am I strong like a bull,
Or am I weak like a cow.
Should I wait for a sign,
Or should I act right now.


(Chorus)


Into the mirror,
I look deep inside.
Loo at these feelings,
That I always hide.
I feel like the old me,
Has long sense died.
If I said I knew myself,
Then I probably lied.
My motivation is gone.
I've lost the will to fly.
And even when i do,
I don't know how high.
I have so many questions,
In my mind.
I look at he shadow of myself,
And ask it why.


(Verse 3)


How do I get through
Not knowing who I am
How can you move forward,
When you dont have a plan.
Everytime the burning stops,
I jump back into the pan.
I dont wanna be,
Just like any other man.
I wanna change the world,
But I dont know if I can.
When I look to the past,
Will I wonder why i ran.
When you don't know who you are.
How do you ask yourself,
I Don't know what i want,
Self happyness or wealth.
All these thoughts,
Are effecting my health.
I sit back and look,
At pictures on the shelf.
And try to define,
The shadow of myself.


(Chorus)


Into the mirror,
I look deep inside.
Loo at these feelings,
That I always hide.
I feel like the old me,
Has long sense died.
If I said I knew myself,
Then I probably lied.
My motivation is gone.
I've lost the will to fly.
And even when i do,
I don't know how high.
I have so many questions,
In my mind.
I look at he shadow of myself,
And ask it why
