shadows lyrics – deviated presence

shadows of a thousand faces
keep on turning in your mind
unforgotten names and places
never really left behind
is it your imagination
seeking shelter from the rain
or a long self conversation
once again
shadows never point a finger
at the things you say or do
silently they seem to linger
anywhere you may run to
sharing every joy or torment
every laughter or despair
facing you at any moment
if you dare
gentle hearts that once surrendered
what you did’nt understand
conquests of a night ended
holding you with trembling hands
in a book a four leaf clover
marks the day you said h*llo
till she found that it was over
long ago
little things had lost their meaning
leaving only emptiness
tender words and simple feelings
never eased your hungriness
yesterdays remain so certain
and tomorrow’s round the bend
can you read the line that darkness
on your hand
both ends of a candle burning
shine so brightly for a while
wrinkles of a life reflecting
in your smile
shadows never point a finger
all the things you say or do
silently they seem to linger
anywhere you may run to
sharing every joy or torment
every laughter or despair
facing you at any moment
if you dare
