All of the snapshots cleared off the shelf.
Sealing the last box all by myself.
Waking without you beside me at dawn,
even your shadow is gone.
Once we were spellbound, then we were cursed.
Facing a breakdown, staying was worse.
Once you were ev’rywhere, now you’ve withdrawn.
Even your shadow is gone.
Dust in a sunbeam, drifting like snow;
Lost in a daydream, numb as a stone.
Sure as a sundial marking the pain,
missing you told time, it gave me a frame.
Where do I turn to be certain I’m strong?
And now that your shadow is gone,
where is the place I belong?
