Shadows in the Night

Folder: 
The Rhythm of Love

You strike me to the core
And I miss you with every breath
You strum my every chord
And now there's no road left


I couldn't leave now, even if I wanted to
I'm caught up bad, and I am hooked on you
I still throw my questions to the skies
And chase against the shadows in the night


But now, I know, I don't face them alone
You're with me, wherever I may roam
Thank you, now, for bringing new ensight
To what used to be my shattered life


I couldn't go now, don't even want to try
I'm captured now, I want you in my life
I still look for answers from the skies
And chase against the shadows in the night


For all that has gone wrong in this life
I know now, that things will be alright
It only matters, now, that I'm with you tonight
To help me cast the shadows to the sky


I used to chase shadows to feel alive
But there was something that was never right
And since you came into my life
I know my life was once deprived


I need you now, I hope you'll never leave
I want you now, to come hold onto me
No more screaming up into the skies
And no more chasing shadows in the night

Sheer brilliance! Especially

Sheer brilliance! Especially this verse:

"I couldn't leave now, even if I wanted to
I'm caught up bad, and I am hooked on you
I still throw my questions to the skies
And chase against the shadows in the night"
