about

BBC Radio Wales' DJ Adam Walton heard the track and declared Hannah Golightly unplayable on radio, unfollowing her on twitter on Christmas Eve. (He was nice about it though.) Hannah took the track to facebook's If It Ain't Punk, It Ain't Worth A Post global punk group and mentioned the BBC Radio Wales banning of the song. The group responded with offers of a protest outside the BBC Radio Wales Studios. Hannah declined their offer, but the song became something of an underground facebook punk hit as a result.

Lyrically, it's a song about the way we project our shit onto each other. We see others as we are ourselves much of the time. It's a song about healing. It's about our denied shadow sides. About potential and empowerment. About getting to know someone through the mud they sling at you.

lyrics

I'll be the bitch inside of you
That you disowned long ago, it's true
You'll be the bitch inside of me
You don't know that though- I'll see you in the shadows

You give your power away
You criticise and judge
But you're just judging yourself- I'll see you in the shadows

You point the finger and say
"I could never be that way"
But you're not above being human

If you learned to love yourself (I'll see you in the shadows)
Then you would love them as well (I'll see you in the shadows)
If you learned to love yourself (I'll see you in the shadows)
Then you would love them as well (I'll see you in the shadows)
See you in the shadows x7

What you judge is what you are (I'll see you in the shadows)
What you see in others is your face in the mirror
Only once you've healed yourself (I'll see you in the shadows)
Accepted all the unacceptable as well

If you learned to love yourself (I'll see you in the shadows)
Then you would love them as well (I'll see you in the shadows)
If you learned to love yourself (I'll see you in the shadows)
Then you would love them as well (I'll see you in the shadows)
See you in the shadows x8

Only then can you truly know (see you in the shadows)
Other people are they really are (see you in the shadows)
And until then all you will see (see you in the shadows)
Are projections on them as your projection screen

If you learned to love yourself (I'll see you in the shadows)
Then you would love them as well (I'll see you in the shadows)
If you learned to love yourself (I'll see you in the shadows)
Then you would love them as well (I'll see you in the shadows)
See you in the shadows x8

In the shadows where you dare not go (I'll see you in the shadows)
Lies your power when you are whole
Embrace them all then let them go (I'll see you in the shadows)
Love yourself and heal your soul
See you in the shadows

See you in the shadows
See you in the shadows
See you in the shadows
See you in the shadows
See you in the shadows
See you in the shadows
See you in the shadows
