Slash – Shadow Life lyrics

A shadow life will only break your heart
It steals the light and tears us all apart
Like a shadow in the dark


I know you're living in a shadow life
Better watch your step
Should you stumble you’re gonna fall
‘cause deadly secrets are the killing kind
Rope around your neck
It’s a wonder you breathe at all

You turn a blind eye and I hold on
You’re a fool; will it ever change
Why can’t you ever see?

The shadow life
Will only break your heart
Like I said before
It steals the light
And tears us all apart
Like a shadow in the dark

I can feel it when you’re under me
There is something else
There is something else I can’t let go
Never silenced to the misery
Feel it in your s** every time that we’re all alone
And still you just deny it, ohhh
But I can’t take this anymore
But I can’t turn away

The shadow life
Will only break your heart
Like I said before
It steals the light
And tears us all apart
Like a shadow in the dark

It’s coming!
It’s coming!
It haunts us
It tears us apart
Just like a shadow in the dark

(Solo)

You’re a shadow in the dark

The shadow life
Will only break your heart
Like I said before
It steals the light
And tears us all apart
Like a shadow in the dark

I feel it when you're under me
There’s a dirty secret to this misery, yeah
The shadow life will only break your heart
Like a shadow in the dark

You’re a shadow in the dark
You’re a shadow in the dark

    I think this song means that's you can't keep hiding and shutting those who care out. To me this song is very meaningful, I love slash and his music and I find them so inspirational. Shadow life could be a reference to feeling in the dark and all alone. What do you guys think?
