lyrics

Ever since I saw you Iʼve never been the same
Iʼm telling you I knew you before I heard your name
Youʼre just like my shadow I never knew I had
Always walking with me, always got my back

And Iʼve been walking miles weathering the rain
Trudging through a badland* biting back the pain
Before I found my shadow , before I found some shade
Before I found my lover, before I knew his name

If I stumble donʼt get me wrong
I might get spooked sometimes
Getting used to having you round
Having you round, having you round

Ever since I saw you Iʼve never been the same
Iʼm telling you I knew you before I heard your name
Iʼd been talking to ya , talking in my sleep
Telling you my secrets, telling you everything
Now I have no secrets , but now I know your name
And I ainʼt scared of nothing
My Shadow is my shade
