You'll never leave me,
You'll never leave me,
You'll never leave me,
You'll never leave me.

I wish we could have another minute to finish this fairy tale.
Hear your voice and get lost in it cause all I got is broken detail.
You were my world and everything in it. So how did you disappear?
I won't say this is over, you're still here.

You're my shadow, my shadow, I know you're close.
You're my shadow, my shadow, everywhere I go.
So I, I don't see the need to cry cause you'll never leave my life.
You're my shadow, my shadow. Oh oh.

You'll never leave me,
You'll never leave me,
You'll never leave me,
You'll never leave me,
No, you'll never leave me.

I won't forget, I'll just sit and reminise. Promise I'll keep all your secrets.
To have you back with me, my only wish cause nobody knew me like you did. The words will come to life I've written in my diary.
Hide and seek but I know you'll always find me.
Count to ten and I know you will appear, appear-pear no fear, I'm here, here.

You're my shadow, my shadow, I know you're close.
You're my shadow, my shadow, everywhere I go.
So I, I don't see the need to cry cause you'll never leave my life.
You're my shadow, my shadow.

You will never leave me.
Now your gone I swear you won't be alone
My heart beat tapping like it's made of stone.
I wont let you down, mute the sound but I can still hear. Yeah.
& now I'm breaking, see I'm shaking but I know your waiting. Yeah-yeah.

You'll never leave me.
You'll never leave me.
No, you'll never leave me.
You'll never leave me.
You'll never leave me.
You'll never leave me.

You're my shadow, my shadow, I know you're close.
You're my shadow, my shadow, everywhere I go.
So I, I don't see the need to cry cause you'll never leave my life.
You're my shadow, my shadow. Oh.
You're my shadow, my shadow, I know you're close.
You're my shadow, my shadow, everywhere I go.
So I, I don't see the need to cry cause you'll never leave my life.
You're my shadow, my shadow.

You'll never leave me. No, please don't ever leave me. No, no, no.

    I lost my husband tragically several months ago and i know without doubt that he is my shadow, gone physically, but always there with me and our children, watching over us spiritually. This song touched me right from the moment i heard it.

    I think it's about missing an ex, the one that you'll never forget, the one that you'll always have some kind of feelings for.
