Alexandra Burke – Shadow lyrics

Oh yeah

The birds and the trees, they don't sing no more
These autumn leaves are lying dead on the floor
Just like mister love, we gonna let it fall, oh yeah
Ain't nothing left but a picture frame
You're forgetting my face, so don't speak my name
Don't wanna ever doubt it's going up in flames

Yeah, you got me running down the wrong road
Yeah, I'm swimming in the shallows
'Cause the love that I seek in what you're giving to me
I want a love that runs deep, want it as deep as the sea

Oh, but I just keep holding on to your shadow
Try to run but I always it's return to your ghost
I keep clinging to everything I have once loved
But love don't live here anymore
Oh, but I just keep holding on to your shadow

I had the key to your heart, you changed the lock on the door
Won't even bother to knock, I know that nobody's home
You're not the person that I knew before, oh
Like the bones of our love is buried deep in the ground
Like the wings of a dove, you can't be holding us down
Let it go, let it go, yeah, forget all the vows

Yeah, you got me running down the wrong road
Yeah, I'm swimming in the shallows
'Cause the love that I seek in what you're giving to me
I want a love that runs deep, want it as deep as the sea

Oh, but I just keep holding on to your shadow
Try to run but I always return to your ghost
I keep clinging to everything I have once loved
But love don't live here anymore
Oh, but I just keep holding on to your shadow

Time is running, let the water come in from the sea
Wasting time on that someone who's not meant to be
Let it go, let it go, go and set yourself free, free, free

Yeah, you got me running down the wrong road
(Yeah) yeah, I'm swimming in the shallows (swimming in the shallows)
'Cause love that I seek in what you're giving to me
I want a love that runs deep, want it as deep as the sea (yeah, yeah, oh no)

Oh, but I just keep holding on to your shadow (on to your shadow, on to your shadow)
Try to run but I always it's return to your ghost
I keep clinging to everything I have once loved but love don't live here anymore
Oh, but I just keep holding on to your shadow (your shadow, shadow, shadow, oh)

I just keep holding on to your shadow
