Safe in the shadows
Deep in the night
I know you're near
But you're nowhere in sight
Safe from the darkness
Down in the streets
I hear your footsteps
I hear your heartbeat
Oh, I can hear your heartbeat

On the street corner
Away from the light
I know you're near
But you're nowhere in sight
Over my shoulder
I feel you're near
I feel you moving
But you never appear

Chasing shadows
Chasing something I can't see
Chasing shadows
Will I ever be free
Chasing shadows
Into the darkness from the light
Chasing shadows
I'm just a victim of the night
The night

Cloaked in darkness
You play at your game
I hear you breathing
Call out your name
Closer, closer, I feel you so near
You're just a shadow
But you never appear

Chasing shadows
Chasing something I can't see
Chasing shadows
Will I ever be free
Chasing shadows
Into the darkness from the light
Chasing shadows
Another victim of the night
The night

Shadows in the night

Safe from the darkness
Deep in the night
I know you're here
You're nowhere in sight
Over my shoulder
I know you are near
I feel you moving
Will you ever appear

I'm chasing something I can't see
Will I ever be free
Shadows in the night
