Shadow On The Stairs
THROUGH THIS LIFE WE WANDER ON
AND SING THESE SAD SONGS
BUT TONIGHT AS WE TELL THESE TALES OF REGRET
WE FEEL A CHANGE, THESE OLD SKINS MUST BE SHED

AS TIME GOES ON WE'RE NOT THE SAME ANYMORE
BUT STILL THESE GHOSTS FIND THEIR WAY TO THE DOOR
OF THIS EMPTY HOUSE STANDING ALONE AND DECAYED
THERE'S NOTHING THERE
BUT A PORTRAIT LEFT TO FADE

IN THE REFLECTION I SEE MYSELF LAID BARE
I SEE DIFFERENCES BUT IT'S STILL ME STANDING THERE
YOU COULD NEVER GRASP THE FACT I MAY BECOME
NOT WHAT YOU WANTED FROM YOUR ONLY SON

AS TIME GOES ON I'M NOT THE SAME ANYMORE
BUT STILL THESE GHOSTS FIND THEIR WAY TO THE DOOR
OF MY EMPTY HOUSE STANDING DERELICT AND BARE
THERE'S NOTHING THERE
BUT A SHADOW ON THE STAIRS

EVERYTHING CHANGES AND EVERYTHING STAYS THE SAME
EVERYTHING CHANGES AND EVERYTHING STAYS THE SAME
EVERYTHING CHANGES AND EVERYTHING STAYS THE SAME
OR WAS IT ME THAT CHANGED AND YOU THAT REMAINED THE SAME?
