Izobel Bransen – Shadow lyrics

You're full of empty threats, I say just do it
Push me to a point where I won't get through it again

You've taken everything, but you won't take my pride
As non-existent as it is, you'll never break my stride

To a finish line that's more than just the end
Life's a race and I've come to find I'm never gonna win

And I, I don't want to be a shadow of myself
Where every step I take I try to just be someone else
I will never be the picture on the shelf
There for all to see, with a smile on my mouth
I can never be just what I want to be
With me holding me back, I chose this for me
I've run out of time

I'm full of empty hopes because you've crushed them
Push me over the edge but please don't catch me this time

You promised lovely things, but this is not my life
I'm following the steps you've laid out over time

And the hourglass is finally running out of sand
By the time the last grain falls, oh, by then will you understand

And I, I don't want to be a shadow of myself
Where every step I take I try to just be someone else
I will never be the picture on the shelf
There for all to see, with a smile on my mouth
I can never be just what I want to be
With me holding me back, I chose this for me
I've run out of time

And I, I don't want to be a shadow of myself
Where every step I take I try to just be someone else
I will never be the picture on the shelf
There for all to see, with a smile on my mouth
I can never be just what I want to be
With me holding me back, I chose this for me
I've run out of time
