My black backpack's stuffed with broken dreams
Twenty bucks should get me through the week
Never said a word of discontentment
Thought it a thousand times but now I'm leaving home

Here in my shadows
I'm safe, I'm free
I've nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay where I don't belong

Two months pass by and it's getting cold
I know I'm not lost, I'm just alone
But I won't cry, I won't give up, I can't go back now
Waking up is knowing who you really are

Here in my shadows
I'm safe, I'm free
I've nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay where I don't belong

In the shadows
I'm safe, I'm free
I've nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay here

Show me the shadow where true meaning lies
So much more dismay in empty eyes

    It means a person who is confused about his/her life, a person who had never got enough love and care from his/her parents. He managed to stand up alone but didn't know that he's leading to a crooked path of his life. But it's not too late coz he's/she's in a good hand now, in God's hand, free from comfusing thoughts. But there's only one thing that he can't go back anymore where he/she was.
