Sometimes the only choice is to part ways.

Shadowsong

We've walked along the path
All these long years
No matter what we go together
Through all the easy smiles
Through all the tears
Through sunny days and stormy weather

But things that used to satisfy
Now leave me asking why

When's it my turn to stand in the light?
When is my chance to feel the sun on my face?
And how I yearn to throw off the night
Wander the world and learn to plan my own pace

In the end, I don't know
Should I stay, should I go
I can't keep living in your shadow

I thought I always knew
How to belong
I used to take my life for granted
So ran the road of life
And so rang the song
No other way would I have planned it

Beyond the reason and the rhyme
We're running out of time

How can we go on the same as before?
Life moves along, it grows, it takes a new shape
Would it be wrong that I could want more?
Why can't I move on? Why can't I make my escape?

Even now I don't know
How to say, how to show
I can't keep living in your shadow

How can there be words to say our goodbyes?
How can a phrase explain the things that we feel?
And it will hurt, no matter who tries
It's best to move on with ev'ry promise that we'll

Make it through, even so
With the mem'ries in tow

Taking care not to dwell
On that final farewell

I'll stand up in the light
Spread my wings and take flight

I'm no longer in your shadow
