Voices overrule me, people push and shove

As I stare across the hallway, at my one true love.

But he doesn't see me, and he doesn't know

Of all the feelings I have for him, all the feelings I can show.

I'm nothing to him but a shadow on the wall

A face in the crowd, a girl who doesn't call.

A portrait of silence is all he sees

Of a girl who hides her cries and screams.

All I wish is for a few words with him

Maybe some eye contact and laughs within.

But who would want a few words with me

A girl who keeps herself discreet and unseen.

I'm nothing to him but a shadow on the wall

A face in the crowd, a girl who doesn't call.

A portrait of silence is all he sees

Of a girl who hides her cries and screams.

I see him standing there, with another girl

They smile and laugh, and it makes me hurl.

But I can' t run his life or tell him what to do

So I'll whacth from a distance admiring the two.

One day I just might get my chance

But for now I can only whacth them dance.

Wishing him happiness, joy, and love

Wishes for the boy, wishes for my belove.

I'm nothing to him but a shadow on the wall

A face in the crowd, a girl who doesn't call.

A portrait of silence is all he sees

Of a girl who hides her cries and screams.
