Yo La Tengo – Shadows lyrics

Scold me, that's all you've got to say
Coldly, hurt me and turn away
You say, "I'm not sorry yet" I'm resigned to what is next
I head for the shadow
Hold me taking it back through tears
You've told me, slowly confessed your fears
But I've got myself to protect. It's too soon for me to forget
I'll wait in the shadows
In the shadows
Though I am alone
They help me, see that I'm the only one in your heart
So until I truly believe that your words convey what you mean
I'll wait in the shadows (2x)
I don't mind the shadows.
