Before a word is spoken
Everything is broken
Even what you hid inside
The world has let you down
Wrung shame out of your pride

Even as you falter
Like sunlight on the water
You shine on my face
This darkness in your heart
It's just a shadow in the way

Ohh, just a shadow in the way
Ohh, it's just a shadow in the way

When the fire leaves you
When no one believes you
When you give yourself away
To a stranger on the road
Who gives you nothing in exchange

Even when the door shuts
Even though the night cuts
Like a silver blade
In the morning you will find
It's just a shadow in the way

Ohh, just a shadow in the way
Ohh, it's just a shadow in the way
Ohh, just a shadow in the way
Ohh, just a shadow in the way

Though we're caught in the darkness
Don't be afraid
Though we're caught in the darkness
Don't be afraid

This world of sorrow
It's just a shadow
This world of sorrow
It's just a shadow
It's just a shadow

Got to get up again
And let the light in
Throw your tears away
That mountain looks so high
It's just a shadow in the way

Ohh, it's a shadow in the way
Ohh, it's just a shadow in the way
Ohh, it's a shadow in the way
Ohh, it's just a shadow in the way

Ohh, it's just a shadow in the way
Ohh, it's just a shadow in the way
Ohh, it's just a shadow in the way

Ohh, it's just a shadow, it's just a shadow
It's just a shadow, ohh, it's just a shadow in your way

Ohh, it's just a shadow in the way
Ohh, it's just a shadow, it's just a shadow in the way
It's just a shadow in your way
