Mozart! Das Musical - My Shadow Always Follows Me by Oedo Kuipers Lyrics

I do not care for princely grace
Or honeyed words from powdered faces
That perfume scent of wealth and pride
Has me sick to death!
My heart is light, my dreams are wild
I want to live life to the fullest
Free as a bird and burning like a spark
Instead I serve some dark
And invisible ghost
[Chorus]
My shadow always follows me
No matter how I try to flee
I cannot crawl out of my skin
I can’t escape my destiny
It wasn’t my choice
To be what I was born to be
But it’s my fate, I can’t break free
My shadow always follows me
[Verse 2]
What good is immortality
To someone who has hardly known life?
Thе stale smell of laurel wrеath
Reminds me of death
What is a perfect symphony
Compared to making love all night long?
No sound, no tune comes ever near the bliss
Of some forbidden kiss
There’s so much I miss
[Chorus: Wolfgang & Ensemble]
My shadow always follows me
No matter how I try to flee
I cannot crawl out of my skin
I can’t escape my destiny
It wasn’t my choice
To be what I was born to be
But it’s my fate, I can’t break free
My shadow always follows me
[Bridge: Wolfgang & Ensemble]
[?] when every joy I feel (At your side is a demon)
[?] put in my shoulders (Look [?])
Doubt, as if I’m good enough ([?])
I’ll go, I know I’m better than the rest ([?])
As you watch the spider (At your side is a demon)
Patronised and lied at (Look [?])
Sometimes I want to be ([?])
Just like everybody else ([?])
And start to live ([?])
[Chorus: Wolfgang & Ensemble]
But my shadow always follows me
No matter how I try to flee
[Ensemble]
I cannot crawl out of my skin
I can’t escape my destiny
[Wolfgang & Ensemble]
It wasn’t my choice
To be what I was born to be
But it’s my fate, I can’t break free
My shadow always follows me
[Chorus: Wolfgang & Ensemble]
My shadow always follows me
No matter how I try to flee (I feel the shadow)
I cannot crawl out of my skin (Taking away)
I can’t escape my destiny (The air to breathe)
It wasn’t my choice (I cannot flee)
To be what I was born to be (I cannot breathe)
But it’s my fate, I can’t break free ([?])
My shadow always follows me (My shadow always follows me)
