I have two shadows in this light

You'll only see one

The alternative 

It tapered off

The one who sees it won't see

the shadow you saw

As it's gone

 

Where am I right now?

Where am I right now?

Where am I right now?

Which face do I need to wear?

Where am I right now?

The dark one or the fair?

 

Where am I right now?

Right here

In front of you

In front of you

Where am I right now?

With Someone else

The shadow's going back in position

My dual life

My dual life

Change my role, in my dual life 

My dual life

Change the role, in my dual life

 

You've never seen my other side but someone else has

But they didn't, meet my current side

Till the end of eternity, I shall conceal

that side of mine

 

Where am I right now?

Can't I live both lives?

Under this spell, I feel like hell

Weary of double life

Can't I live both lives?

Where am I right now?

 

Where am I right now?

Right here

In front of you

In front of you

Where am I right now?

Somewhere else

The shadow's going back in position

My dual life

My dual life

Change my role, in my dual life 

My dual life

Change the role, in my dual life


The author's comments:

To everyone who lives a double life, we are on the same boat...

But remember, you can be both Strong and weak, clever and foolish, caged and free, opposite and opposite, you name it...

“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Another great from the wonderous fantasmarific Afra. Keep it up girl. Cant wait to see whats next. Keep me guessing, as I always love reading what you give me. TheRareBreed

This is great! My favorite line is "Can't I live both lives?" You did an excellent job conveying the longing of wanting to be one person and two people all at the same time.

@Afra, youve again shone bright as always. This is so relatable to me because at home, Im a person and out of my home, im some other person. Btw, i didnt come here for days because we moved to San Diego and youve written nice work during that time period. Great as always! ◇

@Afra, this is a relatable piece of work. And Oh My God, Faded. I am so Happy. Because Alan Walker is Norwegian just like me. And fun fact, the vocals provided for Faded was by the Norwegian singer Iselin Solheim and we share a name. Lol

@Afra, this wonderful and relatable piece can be sung to the tune of Faded by Alan Walker. Is this Deliberate, lol?
