Shadowboxer Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Once my lover, now my friend
What a cruel thing to pretend
What a cunning way to condescend
Once my lover, and now my friend
Oh, you creep up like the clouds
And you set my soul at ease
Then you let your love abound
And you bring me to my knees

Oh, it's evil, babe
The way you let your grace enrapture me
When well you know I'd be insane
To ever let that dirty game recapture me

You made me a shadowboxer, baby
I wanna be ready for what you do
And I been swinging all around me
'Cause I don't know when you're
Gonna make your move

Oh, your gaze is dangereous
And you fill your space so sweet
If I let you get too close
You'll set your spell on me
So darling, I just wanna say
Just in case I don't come through
I was on to every play
I just wanted you

Oh, it's so evil, my love
The way you've no reverence to my concern
So I'll be sure to stay weary of you, love
To save the pain of once my flame and twice my burn

And so I'm a shadowboxer, baby
I wanna be ready for what you do
And I been swinging all around at nothing
I don't know when you're gonna make your move

Yeah, I'm a shadowboxer, baby
I wanna be ready for what you do
And I been swinging all around me
'Cause I don't know when you'll make your move
