Busy with this special thing that takes me far away,
Living for the music if the spirit's gone, why did it fade.
I see you every once in a while, so little I can say,
I know how things have gone for you, you seem so far away. [2x]
Tied up, tied up in rhythm, that's my crime to you!
And everything keeps getting tied up, tied up so tight, I don't know why.
You walked beside me, every step, until a dream had found,
A spot that drove me harder, and harder I keep pushing on,
I hope you won't forget me, the way I treated you,
Until I slow down a bit, I don't know what to do. [2x]
Dear shadow does it seem I've let you down,
Say lonesome, I never meant to let you down,
I'm sorry, I've taken for granted you'd be around.
