​Shadows

This song is by Pram and appears on the album Helium (1994).

If I could record the moment
Just before you leave I'd never
Let it go
To never have to recognize that
I live in the boundaries of my own
Skin and bones

When I'm on my own I hear
My heartbeat like a clock's ticking
Filling the room
And the gentle dark hands of the shadows
Clasped in corners in the gloom

If I could I'd merge with you
Forever live as one as whole complete inside
But I'm afraid that you don't want that
And one day you'll poison me and leave with relief

Like a soldier when you're dressing
Going to do battle with the Town
And I lie here frightened how much
I am tempted to pin you down
