In The Shadows

Never was one for the limelight
You'd see me run from the spotlight
Fading into the night
I'm living in the shadows
It's where I'm at my best
No one knows me here
Most could care less
Living in the shadows

Chorus:
In the shadows, there are no eyes
In the shadows,
We can do what we do,
No one asks why
We're not into making waves
Calm and tranquility is all we crave
We're at home in the shadows
Living in the shadows

People like me make the world go around
Seldom do we utter one single sound
No one knows we're there
And those that do don't care
Living in the shadows

Everyone has their niche in life
Not everyone wants to deal with the strife
Of being on stage, of being a star
Some like their names in lights
Some like things just the way they are
And me, I'm in the shadows
Living in the shadows

Chorus

Author's Note
I think I feel this way about half the time. The other half I want to be doing TV commercials hawking a book while drinking a cup of coffee.
