lyrics

Chorus:

There's nothing I can gain,
by trying to live in my own strength
As You reveal what's underneath
Help me stand behind Your feet

And let me live in Your shadow shadow!
I wanna be in Your shadow shadow!
May I remain in Your shadow shadow!
Let me abide in Your shadow oh oh shadow oh!

Verse 1:

To shadow somebody that means to let them stand in front, but
as a human is that really what I want? Uh uh. 'Cause my
tendencies they tend to be wantin' to do me… And
stayin' in my box, where I think I'm on top, and never let nobody in front of my two feet NAH!

Arrogance and pride, they tear and rip my eyes!
They distort my vision of shadowing God… And they make it
seem like He's the one who needs to back down, and He can
stand behind me, He can "play the background..."

But if I live with that mentality, I'm bound to be proud of me, a self-portrait distorted by what I seek, and if I
fan the flame of livin' just to glorify my name, then all that would come out of me is foul and needs to cease
PLEASE LORD! Humble my heart! So when I stand in front of
people, every time I'd rather stand in the dark YES!

And not seek my own personal gain, rather remain
in Your shadow… merciful King
You wrote the book, I'm just another page.
The spotlight is Yours, You can rock the shades

Chorus:

There's nothing I can gain,
by trying to live in my own strength
As You reveal what's underneath
Help me stand behind Your feet

And let me live in Your shadow shadow!
I wanna be in Your shadow shadow!
May I remain in Your shadow shadow!
Let me abide in Your shadow oh oh shadow oh!

Verse 2:

When people see, what should they see?
The One who's greater than I could ever be so!
Let Your will be done, no matter what I say,
and put me in my place, if I get in the way!

Captivate my heart and my soul
Give me the faith to lose all control God!
And surrender it all to You, I'm just a
vessel for You to use!

You can have the spotlight Lord, it's too much for me to bear…
It's a pair of shoes, too big for me to wear
So let me follow You, You're the forefront, I was such a
hollow dude, until I met the Lord's Son, the King of Kings!

Chorus:

There's nothing I can gain,
by trying to live in my own strength
As You reveal what's underneath
Help me stand behind Your feet

And let me live in Your shadow shadow!
I wanna be in Your shadow shadow!
May I remain in Your shadow shadow!
Let me abide in Your shadow oh oh shadow oh!
