A Shade Of Me Remains

It's about losing someone who means the world to you, and not being able to find a way to properly grieve

I closed my eyes and dared to hope
Maybe that you would walk through the door
Tired and shattered I can’t even bear the thought
That you won’t be here with me anymore

Now only a shade of myself remains
Left bound to this cruel world in chains

Somewhere I hear you sing
My love turns to sorrow in the rain
Your beautiful soul swept in the wind
My blood turns to ice with the pain

How I loved the years that fell so easily
But how can I let go of things I can’t replace
I miss how you breathed life into me
I close my eyes for a shade of your face

Now I only see a faded image of your face
Another void to fill with your embrace

Somewhere I hear you sing
My love turns to sorrow in the rain
Your beautiful soul swept in the wind
My blood turns to ice with the pain

I wish for nothing
But death’s fruit is bitter to me
Maybe one day I’ll return to your embrace
I beg for that day to come, finally

Somewhere I hear you sing
My love turns to sorrow in the rain
Your beautiful soul swept in the wind
My blood turns to ice with the pain

The End
