I glanced upon the ground today I noticed something,
It followed me
Along the way, a figure of gray,
Impersonating every move I make

For now we'll call it my shadow,
And it said will you replace it,
So you'll be with me every where I go...

Sentences of yours,
Running throughout my head,
Searching for a chance
To catch my breath,
A never-ending dream,
You'll become a part of me,
Day or night,
Dark or light you'll be,
Taking over that thing called my
Shadow

And what happens on the days when,
The clouds appear and fade away my
Shade, oh, that's our cue babe,
We'll run away to a place where the sun
Always shines

That not even time could erase,
You're my weakness babe but you give me
Strength, I need you,
I need you like the blood in my veins.

Sentences of yours,
Running throughout my head,
Searching for a chance
To catch my breath,
A never-ending dream,
You'll become a part of me,
Day or night, dark or light you'll be,
Taking over that thing called my
Shadow

    I think that SHADOW by Demi means that your love will be part of you;
    your love will be one with you...
    you can't have a shadow without an object/person...
    you can't have a couple w/o 2 ppl...

    I think shes saying that she was just looking at her shadow, got to think of the one she likes and hopes that instead of the shadow, she would see him everywhere she went. and she can hear his words in her head and from all this, he becomes a part of her and even if its day or light, he's with her... then when it happens that the clouds appear and take her shadow away.. shes going to go to "a place where the sun always shines" so he'll always be with her

    I think that she meens, that, without the sun... you have kno shadow... the clouds take over your shadow. And, i think that she is with someone and they r running to a place... and that person is really an object... and that object is the sun. They r going to ware there is kno clouds, so that she can have her shadow. And when she says "searching for a chance to cach my breath" I think she means... she is running so fast, like she is going to die without her shadow... wich coses for the sun. And she needs her shadow and the sun to breeth. and But kno matter what Everything is taking over "That thing called her shaddow" But all of her thinking is going throo her head, tring to find a place where the sun is, but it will be stuck, and it will become apart of her! And it will be with her anywear she will go... because the sun makes he shadow b there and that means that she will always have her shadow.
