"Shadow" gives a nod to New Orleans jazz, featuring some of Chicago's best musicians, including Shane Jonas (Lowdown Brass Band) and John Deitmeyer (Matthew Santos). Eide's tongue-in-cheek lyrics and sparkling piano riffs make for a smart and catchy tune.

LYRICS

I can’t shake you my shadow, no I can’t shake you
Following me everywhere, seeing every little thing I do
I can’t shake you my shadow, no I can’t shake you
You keeping me on my toes, you making me follow through

Darling your inclined to be just one step behind me
Never minding my pleas to turn the other way
I don’t you to see the rougher parts of me
I don’t want to have to worry about what’s on display

I can’t shake you my shadow, no I can’t shake you
Following me everywhere, seeing every little thing I do
I can’t shake you my shadow, no I can’t shake you
You keeping me on my toes, you making me follow through

My tiny silhouette, you won’t let me forget
the ways I affect you, you mimic my flaws
Seeing the things about myself I detest
is getting hard to digest
and got me feeling depressed

Cause, I can’t shake you my shadow, no I can’t shake you
You’re following me everywhere, seeing every little thing I do
I can’t shake you my shadow, no I can’t shake you
Keeping me on my toes, you making me follow through

Hey!

I can’t shake you my shadow, no I can’t shake you
You’re following me everywhere, seeing every little thing I do
I can’t shake you my shadow, no I can’t shake you
You’re keeping me on my toes, making me follow through

I can’t shake you my shadow, no I can’t shake you
Following me everywhere, seeing every little thing I do
I can’t shake you my shadow, no I can’t shake you
Keeping me on my toes, you’re making me follow through
Following me everywherem, seeing every little thing I do
Keeping me on my toes, you’re making me follow through

about

Sarah Eide Rochester, New York

A classical background coupled with a love for folk and roots music has led Sarah to writing songs that are daring yet familiar. Her lyrics are all at once raw, smart and intimate, wrapped in expressive melodies and driven by adventurous chord changes. Her songs dare question aloud spirituality, morality, relationships, societal standards, and where the line lies between right and wrong. ... more
