Shadow Boxing

Held up against the ropes
Flexing with their give
Keep throwing your verbal punches
Tiring, your heart will be cooperative.

Iím not going to move
bucket spitting, get it out
Sweating as you exert yourself
Calmly matching you bout for bout.

Keep on shadow boxing
I wonít come undone
Keep on shadow boxing
Smiling softly, you'll be won.

Youíll not feel my burn
Nor the afterglow sting
Please lay your demons to rest
After this hit, take a jab not a swing.

Keep on shadow boxing
I wonít come undone
Keep on shadow boxing
Smiling softly, you'll be won.

Unlace your gloves
let them fall to the ground
the bell has gone...
gently finish this round...

Keep on shadow boxing
I wonít come undone...
