A lost shadow
Hey buddy, I hope that you are doing fine
Staring at the phone, going through this line
You got all you wanted, money, car and glory
Let me ask you one thing, are you happy really??
Hey buddy, do you even remember me?
Or am I forgotten just like one of your lost key?
I know you are too busy checking your expense
And I'm one of the invisibles, not worthy of remembrance
Hey buddy, you looked stunning in that suit and tie
Giving an interview, telling a bunch of lie
I saw a stranger that day, surrounded by camera and light
Where did I lose that boy who cried after every fight
Hey buddy, I saw you passing by that lane
It was dark and windy, full of thunder and rain
Yes, I'm talking about that lane full of memories
Where we ran freely having no pain and worries
Hey buddy, do you remember those happy days?
When we chased our shadows, falling on our ways
We walked hand in hand while the church bells rang
We sang some songs which are now never sung
Hey buddy, it was 9 o'clock in the night
We stood on the same lane after having a fight
You said you were too young and you did not feel a thing
Money and glories is all you can dream
Hey buddy, you left me alone, shivering in the cold
I cried loud and loud, needed something to hold
I lost my shadow in the lane and never found it back
You did not turn, just faded away into the dark
Hey buddy, did you really forget how to laugh?
Oh sorry, you might be too busy in doing some paperwork
I heard that you can no longer talk, you just give orders
You don't have any friends, yet you have lots of followers
Hey buddy, people listen when you speak, but do they talk to you?
Do they smile, do they cry with you?
You have dishes in restaurants and large dining hall
But do you still fight for the last piece of pizza, standing by a stall?
Hey buddy, I see you opening some events or shows
Where puppets like you clap, sitting in rows
But do you ever sit on the sofa with your loved ones?
Sleeping on their lap, feeling the warmth of their arms?
Hey buddy, are you still not matured enough to see?
Money and fame are traps, they won't let you free
Happiness is meaningless without people to share
Man isn't man without love, respect and care
Hey buddy, it's never late if you want to try
It's good to have feelings, sometimes it's good to cry
You are just stuck in some other lane which is very narrow
I know you'll make out of it, cause that night I was not the only one who lost her shadow
