(N. Brown/you. Butler/G. Grimstead)

I'm in your shadows constantly
You never allow me to be free
Can't even express my own opinion
'Cause I'm controlled by your dominion
I am locked in the shadows of your love

I'm locked in the shadows of your love
There's no escape, I'll never reach above
I'm locked in the shadows of your love
I'll never be the real me, you'll never let me go free
I'm locked in the shadows of your love
I wish you'd let me go, let me be on my own
But I am locked in the shadows of your love

I have endeavored many times
To escape your paralyzing ties
But it's futile and it's hopeless, why do I even try?
You stole my heart so I can't feel
And imprisoned it in a cage of steel
I'm locked in the shadows of your love

I wish I could be free
From all this insanity
I wish you would let me go
So that I could have a life that's all my own
