You're a shadow
You're a ghost
You're the one that I needed
That I needed the most

I thought I was finished
With all of this stuff
Is it you or me baby
That can't get enough

I still feel something
Like an unseen force
That keeps movin' through me
Well, it's you of course

You're a shadow
Over my soul
You're the heart of darkness
An unfillable hole

You're a shadow
You're a shadow
You're a shadow

Some have a lifetime of memories
They say it feels like a curse
Me, I can't remember a thing about you
And I don't know which is worse

I can't remember your laughter
I can't remember your smell
I can't remember your body
But I'm still under your spell

The sound of your footsteps
The touch of your fingers
I don't remember a thing about you
Still, a part of you lingers

You're a shadow
Over my soul
You're the heart of darkness
An unfillable hole

You're a shadow
You're a shadow
You're a shadow

Now I don't mean to hurt you
Or forsake you
I'll admit there was something you did
I was hoping I could shake you

You're a shadow
You're a ghost
You're the one that I needed
That I needed the most

I thought I was finished
With all of this jive
Is it you or me baby
That keeps this thing alive

You're a shadow
You're a shadow
You're a shadow
