Story

This song talks about how many of us forget the Deserving, Worthy and Unique make-up of Who we Really Are! We often focus on the inadequacies of our personalities, which we label as being a failure and undeserving.

The 'Shadow' in this song refers to the repressed, disowned and unrecognized aspects of ourselves. We dampen our attitude and feeling of Self-Worth by perceiving our 'shadow' as negative - rarely looking at the trapped energy it contains. When we accept 'all of ourselves, we liberate and allow a higher transcendence of this 'shadowed' energy, which in turn can bring out our finer qualities and taproot that of our True Essence.

Look for the Light beneath the Shadow- that hidden Inner Power and Beauty that is the True You!

This song was inspired by the book: 'A Mythic Life ' by Jean Houston

 

Lyrics

THE SHADOW

 

VERSE:

HOLY CHILD YOU HIDE YOUR TREASURE WELL

LONG FORGOTTEN AND TRAPPED BENEATH YOUR SHELL

IN THE MIRROR YOU SEE – A DISTORTED EFFIGY

NOW SCARED OF THE DARK AND ALWAYS ON THE GUARD

 

CHORUS:

GIVE IT LIGHT – GIVE IT LOVE – LET THE SHADOW BE YOUR GUIDE

SET IT FREE – WAKE IT FROM THE DREAM –

                     THE SHADOW IS YOUR ALLY

VERSE:

FULL OF DOUBT – YOU ALWAYS PUT YOURSELF DOWN

DARE NOT LOOK INSIDE – AFRAID OF WHAT YOU MIGHT FIND

ALL THESE WONDERS IN STORE – WAITING AT YOUR DOOR

NEVER FEELING WORTHY ENOUGH – YOU WON’T CLAIM WHAT IS YOURS

                                                                                                             To Chorus…..

 

BRIDGE:

DON’T FIGHT IT OR DENY IT – THE SHADOW BRINGS INSIGHT

EMBRACE IT AND FACE YOUR DARK FRIEND OF THE NIGHT
