Redd Barron – Shadow Man Lyrics

Tell me who I am, ‘cause I don’t know
I’m just a Shadow Man that you see
I’ve got nothing but an empty bottle and an empty soul
My empty hands they hold my memory
Just a shadow
Ask me to smile, I don’t think I can
Tell me my name, don’t you know who I am
Show me tomorrow, you wouldn’t understand
Drink a glass of sorrow, ‘cause I’m your Shadow Man
When you smile for me, the more that I cry
The longer I live for you, the sooner I die
(Can’t you see) Oh don’t you understand
(Killing me) I’m your shadow man
I’m your Shadow Man
Tell me who I am, ‘cause I don’t know
I’m just a Shadow Man that you see
When you smile for me, the more that I cry
The longer I live for you, the sooner I die
(Can’t you see) Oh don’t you understand
(Killing me) I’m your shadow man
(Can’t you see) ‘gonna make my stand
(Killing me) I’m your shadow man
I’m your Shadow Man
When you’re laughing at me, the more that I cry
The longer I live for you, the sooner I die
