  • And the words are ....plain, shadow, mountain, light, glass


    It's plain to see
    That I am just your shadow
    Crouching in the light
    That falls on the mountain, -
    And me, frail and brittle, just like glass

    One day soon,
    This shadow will fly,
    lightly, with her own wings
    without a plane, over the mountain
    And shatter the security
    of the glass cage.


    In the second verse I've used a homonym - plane, instead of plain.
