Like a muddy river running wild and deep
You've got a flaming memory that keeps burning me
Just when I think you love me, doubt creeps in
I still feel the shadow of your distant friend

It's a major heartache when you lose your trust
When you love the feeling, it begins to rust
Just when the sun is shining, clouds set in
I still feel the shadow of your distant friend

I still feel the past each time you touch me
Will the fire in your mind never end?
I'm so afraid our love may turn to ashes
I still feel the shadow of your distant friend

You know I really love you, but your heart's confused
By that aching fever that keeps haunting you
Just when I think it's over, it starts again
I still feel the shadow of your distant friend

I still feel the past each time you touch me
Will the fire in your mind never end?
I'm so afraid our love may turn to ashes
I still feel the shadow of your distant friend
