Mike Shinoda – Running From My Shadow lyrics
(feat. grandson)

[Verse 1: Mike Shinoda]
Yeah!
Wanna know where I don’t go
When it goes from OK to a oh no
When it goes from high five to a low blow
When it goes from all five to a solo
Lemme tell you what you don’t know
I been down so low
I was looking for something
But denying that I found it
There’s an elephant sitting in the room
And I can’t find another way to tiptoe around it
I been doing greater good for a long time
But I can’t find any other way to give now
I been putting myself on the sideline
And it’s been time so I’m saying can I live now

[Pre-Chorus: Mike Shinoda]
There are times when I kick myself
Say I’m not sick but I can’t get well
Say I got this while I chase my tail
As if they can’t tell

[Chorus: Mike Shinoda & grandson]
I'm running from my shadow
Running from my shadow
But it’s still there chasing me down
I’ll never win the battle
Never win the battle
And I should have known it by now
Just when I think I’ve found the end (oh-oh-oh-ohhh)
I’m going back around again (oh-oh-oh-ohhh)
Running from my shadow
Running from my shadow but it’s still there chasing me down

[Verse 2: Mike Shinoda]
Light side’s got a dark side to it
Daytime flows into night like fluid
The yin and the yang with a curved line through it
And none of it’s illuminating why I do it
Maybe I didn’t want to chase what was not right
Maybe I didn’t want to face you were offsides
Thinking I was far away from a crossed line
But I was giving soft praise to a hard lie
There are things that you say and you don’t say
My tongue’s gotten real tired of me biting it
‘Cause I keep on following the wrong way
Time’s come and I can’t keep denying it

[Pre-Chorus: Mike Shinoda]
There are times when I kick myself
Say I’m not sick but I can’t get well
Say I got this while I chase my tail
As if they can’t tell

[Chorus: Mike Shinoda & grandson]
I'm running from my shadow
Running from my shadow
But it’s still there chasing me down
I’ll never win the battle
Never win the battle
And I should have known it by now
Just when I think I’ve found the end (oh-oh-oh-ohhh)
I’m going back around again (oh-oh-oh-ohhh)
Running from my shadow
Running from my shadow but it’s still there chasing me down

[Bridge: grandson]
I love you but I know
I gotta let you go
Dancing with the devil
'Cause she’s all I’ve ever known
Wanted to pretend
That this time was the end
Sorry but I guess
I gotta let you down again
Again Again Again
Running from my shadow
Now my shadow is my only friend

[Outro: Mike Shinoda & grandson]
Running from my shadow
But it’s still there chasing me down
Running from my shadow
Running from my shadow
But it’s still there chasing me down
