< >i am already gone but my shadow can stay
At least to finish what is left of us.
To give you the joy of being with me
when i am already gone
Although i am still sitting with you at a dinner table and
hold your hand and give you this staged romance
believe me i am miles away.
for the sake of our children my shadow can stay
to feed your abusive habit
name calling and swearing
i am too ashamed to walk away
but i am already gone.
whats left is a shell of something that could have been me
i have run out of romance but hey
do not worry none of this will do you harm
my shadow can stay.
i have since replaced you
i have lost our romance rithyme
you are so forgotten,i some times question your very existence
i can not go neither can i stay
so many times i have lied to you
i pretended you mattered the most
the time has come for our invisible farewells
but my shadow can stay
i did it all for oath i took i mean (till death do us part)
at least i am keeping my word
you may never know i left
i am already gone
MY SHADOW CAN STAY
