This song talks about how no matter what you go through you’ve still got yourself and that you don’t need people to make you happy. It has very inspirational lyrics such as “I walk a lonely road, the only road I have ever known.“ It means that no matter what, you could make yourself happy but yet have the feeling of lonliness, sorrow, and despair. It also says “my shadow’s the only thing that walks beside me. “ He’s comparing his shadow to a living thing so he never feels alone. The songs says that you’re always going to have people there for you whether you think they’re there or not.
It’s a really slow song. Even though he’s lonely, he overcomes it in the end.
