The Shadows Follow (As Autumn Calls)

The shadows follow me They hold me within their grasp Hiding me from hungry eyes I’m a silhouette of a man Forgotten before I’m ever known Dying as I live my life It is lonely here in this darkness I try and sleep the pain away In the darkness, hear me cry In the darkness I live to die In the darkness, I will wallow In the darkness, the shadows follow My hopes and dreams lie dead Beneath a veil of black I know death lurks nearby Watching me... waiting for me... I’ve tried a million times To find a place to hide No matter what I do The shadows will follow No emotion inside of me Everything is so obscure I cannot tell what is real The sun begins to fade away As the music slowly dies I dream of you as I fade away
