Here, in the shadow…


My black backpack’s stuffed with broken dreams
20 bucks should get me through the week
Never said a word of discontentment
Fought it a thousand times but now
I’m leaving home

Here in the shadows
I’m safe
I’m free
I’ve nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay where I don’t belong

Two months pass by and it’s getting cold
I know I’m not lost
I am just alone
But I won’t cry
I won’t give up
I can’t go back now
Waking up is knowing who you really are



Show me the shadow where true meaning lies
So much more dismay in empty eyes

… This song is really so close to what happened to me. Or at least to what I am feeling sometimes. It’s like I’m forced into it…I really felt leaving with my backpack full of broken dreams…I still have them no, there, and in my room, and in my mind and soul. But as the song already says it…I can’t go back now…where I don’t belong..

Still, this weekend I reminded myself what all those years ment…why I was such foolish in love..why I did all those things…and why I still don’t regret them, and think about it like my „golden days”…
