Structure+Lyrics:

Intro

Verse:
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

Prechorus:
I don't want to be nobody's fool
I've played that part so many times before

Chorus:
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

Verse:
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

Prechorus:
I don't want to be nobody's fool
I've played that part so many times before

Chorus:
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

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