lyrics

The clock struck eleven and I hadn't had a drink
my mind was so heavy that I couldn't even think
now I'm in the kitchen leaning over the sink
and I'm back in the shadows again
Once there was a rich man who made a thousand laws
once there was a lion with a tiger in its jaws
now there's ample proof that I've been fighting for the cause
'cause I'm back in the shadows again

Oh back in the shadows I'm living like a king
back in the shadows and I see everything
oh back in the shadows and can't you hear me sing
that I'm back in the shadows again

Whisper hugs and kisses as you see me sliding by
love the way I laugh your name and love the way I cry
today might be the day I live it might be the day I die
and I'm back in the shadows again
If the wind makes rain then I'll let myself get wet
fill my heart with pain and I'll let myself forget
if there's a clogged up drain well I haven't found it yet
but I'm back in the shadows again

Oh back in the shadows with the garbage and the jewels
back in the shadows where I make my own rules
oh back in the shadows with my hard hat and my tools
oh I'm back in the shadows again

Now I might be the person that you knew the year before
or I might be somebody else I'm really not too sure
but I still love to see you when you walk across the floor
and I'm back in the shadows again
I go down to the basement and I listen to the ground
if you've got an ear like mine you know it makes a sound
it's just the earth a-creakin' as it goes around and round
and I'm back in the shadows again

Oh back in the shadows as lonely as can be
back in the shadow I've never felt so free
oh back in the shadows with a lock that has no key
and I'm back in the shadows again
