Before a word is spoken,
Everything is broken,
Even what your hid inside.
The world has let you down, wrung shame out of your pride.

But even as you falter,
Like sunlight on the water,
You shine on my face.
This darkness in your heart, it's just a shadow in the way.

(Chorus)
Oh, a shadow in the way,
Oh, it's just a shadow in the way.

When the fire leaves,
When no one believes you,
When you give yourself away
To a stranger on the road who gives you nothing in exchange.

Even when the door shuts,
Even though the night cuts
Like a silver blade,
In the morning you will find it's just a shadow in the way.

[Chorus]

Though we're caught in the darkness, don't be afraid.
Though we're caught in the darkness, don't be afraid.
This world of sorrow,
It's just a shadow.
This world of sorrow,
It's just a shadow.
It's just a shadow.

Got to get up again,
Let the light in,
Throw your tears away.
That mountain looks so high, it's just a shadow in the way.
