Oh here's the sun again
Isn't it appealing to recline
Get blinded and to go into the light again
Doesn't it make you sad
To see so much love denied
See nothing but a shadowman inside........

The shadow sees him looking up almost with optimism or resolution, whereas the reality seems to be eyes that are empty except for a feeling of dislocation. At least that's what I see. Very thought provoking, I love this.

I like the way you alternate between sweet childhood images and the deeply disturbing, and treat them both with the same degree of seriousness and respect. The shadow speaks of a strange, silent alter ego. It's as strong as the face, even stronger. And so different.
