The Shadow Of Your Heart


The sun shining off your face
Is all I can see in my brain,
Laying next to you in the grass
Clinging to you, just don't go insane,

Then comes the moon
Killing the shine on your face,
That's when you start to slip away
Your entire knowledge of me desintegrates,

You're the only one I care for
After being hit down so low,
If only you could see my feelings
Of how much I want you to know,
All anyone can see is just me
Living under... your heart's shadow

'Cause I'm living in the shadow of your heart...
I want to have you, want to hold you...
I want you, want you to be mine...
Yeah, I'm living in the shadow of your heart...

'Cause I'm living in the shadow of your heart...
I want to have you, want to hold you...
I want you, want you to be mine...
Yeah, I'm living in the shadow of your heart...

Let's lay on the grass,
Let's stare at the stars,
Let's dream of flying,
We're so near, yet so far,

Why don't we hold hands
Until the darkest of the night,
Why don't we hug tightly
Until the sun shows it's light,

You're the only one I care for
After being hit down so low,
If only you could see my feelings
Of how much I want you to know,
All anyone can see is just me
Living under... your heart's shadow

'Cause I'm living in the shadow of your heart...
I want to have you, want to hold you...
I want you, want you to be mine...
Yeah, I'm living in the shadow of your heart...

'Cause I'm living in the shadow of your heart...
I want to have you, want to hold you...
I want you, want you to be mine...
Yeah, I'm living in the shadow of your heart...

Living in the shadow of your heart...
Surviving behind all the rest...
Watching the sun rise is the hardest part...
But, you glowing is the best...

When the sun shines
On that beautiful heart,
A shadow is cast
That sets me apart,

Your heart beats for him
While I'm left without light,
And within this darkness
I'm losing my sight,

'Cause I'm living in the shadow of your heart...
I want to have you, want to hold you...
I want you, want you to be mine...
Yeah, I'm living in the shadow of your heart...

'Cause I'm living in the shadow of your heart...
I want to have you, want to hold you...
I want you, want you to be mine...
Yeah, I'm living in the shadow of your heart...

'Cause I'm living in the shadow of your heart...
I want to have you, want to hold you...
I want you, want you to be mine...
Yeah, I'm living in the shadow of your heart...

'Cause I'm living in the shadow of your heart...
I want to have you, want to hold you...
I want you, want you to be mine...
Yeah, I'm living in the shadow of your heart...

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
