Shadowboxer

I am a shadowboxer of distinction

But I know I’ll never win

Going toe to toe with my reflection

Is bound to do me in

 

Yet I step into the ring again

Think I’ll box another round

Every time you leave me hanging

Each time you turn me down

 

It starts with second guessing

All that stuff that echoes in my head

And soon enough it escalates

Till I’m fighting me instead

 

Yes I’m just a shadowboxer

Throwing punches in the air

Landing knockout blows on nothing

Just grasping straws that never were

 

My arguments are all inside

The dialogue is pointed

The things I did I now regret

And too many disappointed

 

I am a shadowboxer of distinction

But I know I’ll never win

Went toe to toe with my reflection

And its left me all done in
