I’m unsure why, but I’ve been very afraid to share this song (it’s too much like one of those private journal entries you burn!).

a special thanks to SackJo22 for giving me the courage to share it here.


Goodbye Shadow


Wrestling with despair
Fighting him on my knees
Wandering in mental cages
Haven’t really slept in weeks

I’ve been ignorant
To all this fear
Harboring deep in me
Anchoring me to my shadow
Sailing on a stormy sea

Is this a test
I am failing
Falling fast
Could use a safety railing
Falling fast, falling fast

Goodbye shadow
Stay behind me
Goodbye you’re not me
I’ve just this chance to be
Or not to be

Be, be, be, be

Goodbye shadow, goodbye please go
Goodbye shadow, goodbye please go
Goodbye shadow, goodbye please go

No turning back
Pushing through this black
Of my shadow (now please go)

Goodbye shadow
Stay behind me
Goodbye you’re not me
I’ve just this chance to be
Just this chance to be
Just this chance to be
Or not to be

(Goodbye shadow) To be or not
(Goodbye shadow) To be or not
(Goodbye shadow) To be or not
To be
