Lyrics

Shadow of a man

Written By: Alex Tinlin/Rolf Tinlin

The bubble has burst, you had to go. Could have been worse, just spending every day wishing the hours away.
There's so many things I need to do, but top of them all - get back with you, my dear.
Why is it so hard? Why can't I let it go? This is as close as we can be.
Things change, nothing stays the same. It's an old-fashioned view but I don't care. Even though we'll both deny things change, look what we've become; just a shadow of a man that you once know, and a woman who passed me by. How things change.
Trying so hard to sympathise. You offer your arms, but still can't meet these eyes. Here we go over old ground.
Things change, nothing stays the same. It's an old-fashioned view but I don't care. Even though we'll both deny things change, look what we've become; just a shadow of a man that you once know, and a woman who passed me by. How things change.
There's so many things I need to say; am I closing the door, or begging you to stay?
Why is it so hard? Why can't I sleep alone? Taking the only road I know.
Things change, nothing stays the same. It's an old-fashioned view but I don't care. Even though we'll both deny things change, look what we've become; just a shadow of a man that you once know, and a woman who passed me by. How things change.
The bubble has burst. Now I'm a shadow of a man.
