SHADOW OF DESPAIR
It’s not prison walls that are holding me, it’s heartbreak and misery.
Let my heart journey, let my heart be free, release me from this misery.
Heartbreak coming down like rain, I can no longer take this pain, my heart is withering, it used to be strong.
Then one day you came along, playing your music, and I danced to your song.
Now you tell my heart to move on, covered with grief, and shame, like a tree in the shadows of despair.
You left my heart standing there, all alone with no one to care, In the shadow of despair.
