Scott Felgner

The Shadows Of Life






I sit alone in the clouded kitchen
The single spark surrounds the darkness
My dreams fade into something less
Imprisoned by my own sin
No turning away from what I cannot hide

The shadows of life fill my mind with doubt
Fear, rejection and pity is all I have found
Do you see my good?
I cannot do this alone

Rejected by all that I accept
Forgiving all except myself
Gossip critics talk from the distant rooftops
Living their lives without any sin
Leaving me to bear their faults
