My Own Shadow

from by The Whelps



Got a good sight of a fist in a fight
As I watched it didn't feel right
And I know you can't have wrong without the right
But I finally thought i'd grown into my height

Glanced to the corner and what did I see?
My own shadow far away from me
My own shadow

A million eyes, they excavate the night
And I make my way back under heavy blue light
Walking blood just wants to be liked
And each is filled with pints and pints and pints

Looked across the street and what did I see?
My own shadow stood staring at me
My own shadow

My foot hits the drive and my shoe feels tight
All the trees are reeling back in delight
My fingers, they snap on the lights
My eyes are tight and the floor's oh so bright

Drew back the curtains and what did I see?
My own shadow swims closer to me
My own shadow
Ran up the stairs and what did I see?
My own shadow face to face with me
My own shadow
