[ID: Center in the art is Ruby Rocks, a red licorice-themed princess. She is framed on either side by the towers of the candy-themed castle she is standing in front of, seen from the bust-up. In the background are roiling storm clouds against a dark sky. There is bright lightning striking on both sides of the art, casting sharp light on the right side of Ruby's face, which wears a determined expression. Behind Ruby is her sister Jet Rocks, a black-licorice themed princess. Jet is holding both of Ruby's shoulders. Jet is only visible from the nose-down, and is frowning. End ID.]

lyrics

I have no strength left
Nothing left to spend
Just this newfound rift
And pain that never ends

I miss your bright smile
Licorice on your breath
Filled with conviction and guile
Now the nothing of death

Oh, why did I run?
Cowardice filled my blood
But with the morning sun
Your shadow lingers on

You follow my every move
Ever-present, ever-gone
Consumed with a bright gloom
Oh, how do I move on?

You were the one I could count on
I have nothing to fall back on
You were the yin to my yang, the sun to my moon
I hope we can reunite soon

Your jet black shadow haunts me wherever I go
Lost in half of a memory that’s trapped me
Somewhere in between the dead and the living
I can’t keep giving and giving
I will find your ghost, your jet black shadow

Chorus (overlapping):
I’m still here
In your footsteps
I’m with you
As you fly
Look inside for my ghost
Jet black shadow

Circumstances are stark
And tears have choked my eyes
You’re stuck in the dark
And only seen by light

You won’t be replaced
No matter how hard they try
You step with me in this space
And exist in my mind

You were the one I could count on
I have nothing to fall back on
You were the yin to my yang, the sun to my moon
I hope we can reunite soon

(Run away)
Invisible and afraid, I
(Run away)
Blood runs thicker than water, yet she
(Fades away)
Hold fast to the locket’s glow yet it’s light
(Fades away)
And the flame flickers out
And my heart breaks

Your jet black shadow haunts me wherever I go
Lost in half of a memory that’s trapped me somewhere in between
The dead and the living. I can’t keep giving and giving
I will find your ghost, your jet black shadow
My jet black shadow

Chorus (overlapping):
I’m still here
In your footsteps
I’m with you
As you fly
Look inside for my ghost
Jet black shadow
Jet black shadow
