​Shadow Of A Man

This song is by Hue And Cry and appears on the album Showtime! (1994).

Haunts my every step
Behind me where I stand
I'm a stranger to myself
A mere shadow of a man

I'm blinking in the torchlight
Holding fingers to my eyes
Another midnight escapade
Another guy the wrong size

I hang around the neighbourhood
Watch my boy at play
See myself in miniture
All my mistakes wiped away
He doesn't know me anyway
With my broken open face
I'm rooted to the spot right here
Falling into my own space

Haunts my every step
Behind me where I stand
I'm a stranger to myself
A mere shadow of a man

My room is like a negative
That's on a strip of film
I huddle in the comer
And the time is killing...

He doesn't know me anyway
With my broken open face
I'm rooted to the spot right here
Falling into my own space
I hang around the neighbourhood
Watch my boy at play
See myself in miniature
All my mistakes wiped away

Haunts my every step
Behind me where I stand
I'm a stranger to myself
A mere shadow of a man
