lyrics

My short lived shadow

I am loved
I am pure
I am beautiful
I’m not afraid
and I’ve been made to be a queen

I am whole
I am complete
I have all that I need
And I can see
I have such power that doesn’t come just from me

Because what you see, isn’t me, it’s my shadow, my evil shadow.
Because what you see, isn’t me, it’s my shadow, my evil shadow
But it’s not me.

I am free
And I can see
you seated here next to me
And you accept me and call me your own

I am new
And bound with you
I’ll branch out onto your tree
And I am rich, so very rich
with nothing you can take away from me

Because what you see, isn’t me, its my shadow, my evil shadow
Because what you see, isn’t me, it’s my shadow, my evil shadow
But it’s not me

For when the light does truely come and surround
All the shadows will be chased till no more abound
and my eyes will see clearly yours looking at me
and we’ll dance and we’ll dance until the end of time.

You are loved
you are pure
you are beautiful
Be not afraid
You’ve been made to be royalty
