Lyrics

Shadow Boxing


We can't split the difference, I can't take your darker side

painful separation - love form fear and hate from pride

Shadows on the Wall - Created by the Light



I tried to run from your shadow, and destroy your darkness with light but as we struggle towards freedom from bondage we desire - to fight - Shadow Boxing



I can't take you from me, for the reasons that I use

I blame the messenger - for bringing the bad news

Shadows on the Wall - Created by the Light



I tried to run from your shadow, and destroy your darkness with light but as we struggle towards freedom from bondage we desire - to fight - Shadow Boxing



I'm not the enemy - nor the thoughts you can't control

familiar memory hides the darkness in your soul

Shadows on the Wall - Created by the Light



I tried to run from your shadow, and destroy your darkness with light but as we struggle towards freedom from bondage we desire - to fight - Shadow Boxing
