An observer, I won't go out of my way to know you
I'm comfortable in the corner quietly watching, learning

Yet you always find me by some magnetic force and pull me out
Drawn to me wherever I go, I haven't any need to seek attention

I can seamlessly blend into almost any scene
Enamored, you'll introduce the skeletons in your closet

I'll shake hands with a smile, walking passed my own
When yours follow, I'll stand to slay them alone

Once you've given me your darkness, I'll keep it company
The allure of my strangeness will have passed its time

You'll feel energized and anew while I walk with my shadow
Looking back, you realize you haven't even a name to call me by

A fleeting entity, my energy dispersed, I carry on
By the time you turn to look at me, I'll be soaked up by the night
