People pass by and ignore me.
For I am only a shadow; lonely and in need.
In need for a friend, in need for a believer.
A believer who believes that I am real.

I want someone to say they care.
I want someone to just be there.
Someone to praise me when I do right.
And someone to hug me when I do wrong.

I would like to hear that I can do anything.
I would like someone to admire my talent that shines.
I would like a friend to like me for who I am.
And a lover to love me for who I am.

I would smile if instead of wandering by.
Someone bothered to look with their eyes.
And see the company that is following.
Instead of just ignoring me like a shadow.
