I once was a girl not too long ago
I told my daddy I’d conquer the world
His response was very very simple
You’re invisible to me in my world

Late at night I would dry my tears
From the pain he caused throughout the years
Wondering why I never belonged
Well I’ve been invisible for far too long

It’s like I’m a shadow
I’m a shadow on the wall
It’s like you don’t know me
Not a little not at all
It’s like you don’t want me
Well did you ever at all
When I should be your daughter
Not just a picture on the wall

You were the one who was supposed to be there for me
Now I’m trying to forget what you said to me
All I want is for you to be my friend
Will you be there for me until the end

It’s like I’m a shadow
I’m a shadow on the wall
It’s like you don’t know me
Not a little, not at all It’s like you don’t want me
Well did you ever at all?
I should be your daughter
Not just a picture on the wall

I just hope you will understand
I just want you to be my friend
Please don’t walk on by
Like I was a picture
On the wall

I’m a shadow
I’m a shadow on the wall
It’s like you don’t know me
Not a little, not at all
It’s like you don’t want me
Well did you ever at all?
I should be your daughter
Not just a picture on the wall
On the wall
