It's hard for me to see when I'm wrong 
It's hard for me to weep when I'm strong 
But I could never sleep when you're gone
Oh but still 
If you were 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 wanna 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
It cannot be seen at all
At all

Over it
Hey 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 safe
It must have been the way I was raised  Sleep with one eye open I say
Hey hey hey


How I long to be
A shadow on the wall
I would make no sound at all
At all
