Me and My Shadow

This song is by M. Ward and appears on the album A Wasteland Companion (2012).

Original video
There is a singer everyone has heard
At night he turns into a mocking bird
If I whistle in the dark, he'll do that, too

I met him on the road at the close of day
He talk like me, he walk this way
I said, "Mocking bird, you ain't no innovator"

And there is a singer everybody knows
He makes the rounds of the late-night shows
Shake the hand of the host and the masquerade is on

You turn him off the radio
And he say, "Me and my shadow"
Shoot out the lights and my shadow's gone

Down at the bottom of the Kelena Bay
Find my ...
Down at the bottom of the Kelena Bay
If I'm tied up to the tracks
He's chained up to the road

And it's one for the money, two for the show
For me and my shadow
Shoot out the lights and my shadow is gone
Shoot out the lights and my shadow is gone

There is a shadow everyone has heard
At night he turns into a mocking bird
If I whistle in the dark, he'll do that, too

I met him on the road today
A silhouette on a black highway
I said, "You can have this world, this world is not my home"
And then he said, "You can keep this world, this world is not my home"
