Casting Shadows…

Don’t be angry when his heart wanders
Don’t sit in the house and try to ponder
You never quite understand – here’s why
No matter your reach it’s still too high.
The truth is that I cast a long shadow.

Across the days and nights from sunrise to sunset
Devotion is something that a heart doesn’t forget
When it is experienced in truth it needs no reason
Its year after year, and in and out of season.
But the truth is that I cast a long shadow.

You may have won the war, and I lost each battle
Some things you can kill, others you can only rattle
Because look closely at what you really gained
Is it a love that’s true or is it stained?
Know the truth is that I cast a long shadow.

And if his thoughts & dreams are of me.
Believe what you like, I’ll just sip this tea.
There’s no need to fight and certainly not spit
I don’t have to say a word I can just quietly sit.
And the truth is that I cast a long shadow.

Like a fly on the wall of a place I’ve never been
I live right there with you, as big as your sin.
You want the dream, but in reality, there’s smoke
And the fire follows it, so take a deep toke
Since the truth is I that cast a long shadow.

I’m gone but since I’m not dead yet
I cast a long shadow and on this you can bet…

That no matter what you do or you say
You will live in it every single day
And you can ask why he never looks at you
The way he looked at me till you’re blue
Its the truth I cast a long shadow, you see,

And though you try, you can’t replace me. SK
