Shadows on a Wall

I know what you can give me
It's like shadows on a wall
It's strange
It can change
But it's nothing at all

It's a simple reflection
And it's all that I've got
And before
You could give more
But that's not what I want

You only wanted to give
When I was his girl
When I'd take
And I'd break
From being his world

Nothing was ever as real
As my love for your shame
For bleeding
For needing

For being your bane

As I am

for now
And forever will be
Lie her name
Cry her name
When you only wanted me

But I know what you have left me
It's like a shadow on a wall
Just a memory
Just you and me
Just nothing at all
