I could spend a lifetime lookin' for something
Waitin' for the one, but it's never comin'
Miles and miles, but I can't stop runnin', can't stop runnin'
'Cause when I'm at my best, I just see imperfections
Counting up my debts, never counting my blessings
Always out of reach, but it's right there in front of me
Right there in front of me, am I always gonna be

Chasing my shadow?
Chasing my shadow

Drinkin' on my back porch, dreamin' we'll get out
Scuffin' up my white Vans, sneak out of your house
Just a couple kids, tryna figure it all out
Actin' reckless and stupid like life is a movie
Okay, now let's fast-forward, stick to the program
Stickers on my passport, New York to London
See the Eiffel Tower through a telescope
Watch a car crash, and a homeless man he said
"What do you know?" Well, what do I know?

Chasing my shadow
Chasing my shadow
Wherever I run, wherever I go
Will I ever stop wanting more
Chasing my shadow

Power lines through the city
And Bowery looks so pretty
How far I've come, how far I've gotta go
And all I need is killin' me, it's killin me
As soon as I get what I wanted before
It's not what I want anymore

I'm chasing my shadow
Chasing my shadow (chasin' me)
Wherever I run, wherever I go
Will I ever stop wanting more
Chasing my shadow
Chasing my shadow
Chasing my shadow
