Silhouette

Posted: May 11, 2013 in Music/Lyrics, Other Songs

She’s only a silhouette
A figment of my dreams
And now I realize
That’s all she’ll ever be
No matter what I feel
A dancing shadow is not for me
I need a truth that’s real
Not a silhouette dream

Her silhouette drives me crazy
Like chasing shadows in the afternoon
It’s like I’m singing “Call me maybe”
But it’s just not her tune
I never really had her
She played me, I’ma fool
And now it’s game over
In the game for two

I may have held her hand
I saw her so clearly
But all I saw was a shadow
Dancing just for me
But the person behind
She was always out of reach
And now I realize
A silhouette’s all she’ll ever be

She’s only a silhouette
A figment of my dreams
And now I realize
That’s all she’ll ever be
No matter what I feel
A dancing shadow is not for me
I need a truth that’s real
Not a silhouette dream

A little fire and she fades away
The light starts to shine, she’s gone the next day
She moved and passed me by
But silhouettes need no alibi
For the crimes of heart ache they leave behind
Their pretty little dance for any passer-bys
Passing by, curiosity
But that doesn’t make it right to be
Misrepresenting what you may seriously (be)
If you were honest with yourself and reality
Reality just doesn’t seem right to me
If people like her are the majority
A real silhouette society
Yea, until heart and truth meet.

She’s only a silhouette
A figment of my dreams
And now I realize
That’s all she’ll ever be
No matter what I feel
A dancing shadow is not for me
I need a truth that’s real
Not a silhouette dream
