I'm Like The Shadow
On My Wall

I saw a shadow on my wall that made me think of you

Each time I moved the shadow seemed to disappear

Reminding me of the times you told me you loved me

Then changing your mind without shedding a single tear.

When I moved back to where the shadow could be seen

I wished there was a way I could make the shadow stay

Sadly, I knew it's impossible to tell a shadow what to do

Like I know making you love me there's no possible way.

Like the shadow cannot move, my heart can't forget you

So I will move down life's highway as best I possibly can

Hopelessly knowing my heart will always belong to you

Like I know I'll come back and try to win your love again.

I'm like the shadow on my wall.....
