Shadow on the Wall – Brandi Carlile

Gone, it’s hard for me to say when I’m wrong
It’s hard for me to weep when I’m strong
But I can never sleep when you’re gone
Oh, but still, if you are gonna crucify me
I wouldn’t want nobody to see
‘Cause you could kick me hard when I’m down
Down, down, down

I don’t want to be nobody’s fool
I’ve played that part so many times before
How I long to be a shadow on the wall
I will make no sound at all
And when the sun goes down
The shadow on the wall cannot be seen at all
At all

Oh friend, it’s not that you would mess with my head
I believe that you believe what you said
You think you know me best and you care
But that’s not fair
‘Cause I don’t really want to be seen
It must’ve been the way I was raised
To sleep with one eye open I’d say
Hey, hey, hey

Chorus

Oh how I long to be a shadow on the wall
I will make no sound at all
At all
