Your time in the lights
Came and went just as fast
Stolen from you in your moment of glory
It's an old story
It's an old ghost you can't forget
And you regret the way
That it was taken away from you
Now you try to relieve
What you could've been
Mouthing the words
You don't even believe in
And you're losing your shadow
You're losing your dreams
You're losing everything
ANd you can't get it back
You say you didn't want much
You only wanted her and she's not much
You mean it's easier to be mean
Than to say the way you really feel
I wonder how much it would really mean
If it were real
Well you take a sad song
ANd make it last foever
Over and Over
Double 'A' side promo
Once more without feeling
Once more without failing
One more time playing the stupid game
Of holding on and not letting theing's change
Of holding on to old ghosts
And never learning
That you can't get it back
Now your losing your shadow
You're losing your dreams
You're just a ghost
Of what you used to believe
And you can't get it back
You couldn't hold on, you couldn't let go
Ah, you moved too slow
And you can't get it back
