Ashlee Simpson - Shadow Lyrics




I was six years old
When my parents went away
I was stuck inside a broken life
I couldn't wish away
She was beautiful
She had everything and more
And my escape was hiding out and running for the door

Somebody listen please
It used to be so hard being me
Living in the shadow
Of someone else's dream
Trying to find a hand to hold but every touch felt cold to me
Living in a nightmare
A never-ending sleep
But now that I am wide awake
My chains are finally free
Don't feel sorry for me

All the days collided
One less perfect than the next
I was stuck inside someone else's life and always second best
Oh, I love you now 'cause now I realize
That it's safe outside to come alive in my identity

So if you're listening
There's so much more to me you haven't seen
Living in the shadow
Of someone else's dream
Trying to find a hand to hold but every touch felt cold to me
Living in a nightmare
A never-ending sleep
But now that I am wide awake
Then I can finally see
Don't feel sorry for me-

Mother, sister, father, sister, mother
Everything's cool now
Mother, sister, father, sister, mother
Everything's cool now
Oh, my life is good
I've got more than anyone should
Oh, my life is good
And the past is in the past

I was living in the shadow
Of someone else's dream
Trying to find a hand to hold but every touch felt cold to me
I'm living in a new day
I'm living it for me
And now that I am wide awake
Then I can finally see
So don't feel sorry for me
Don't feel sorry, don't feel sorry for me
Don't feel sorry, don't feel sorry for me

Living in, living in, living in the shadow
Living in, living in, living in a new day

  18. Eva Maurer

    The lord Jesus Christ is coming. Repent and accept our lord Jesus as your only God and Savoir. May the lord bless you and keep you.

  19. Divine Buñi

    Kimberly Rose Visser said something in middle School and it was hey look there's Flat Chested Girl and for her she was Actually laughing and she did take my friends away from me in middle school and I was really upset for she did to me. and she did the same thing in Highschool that she took my friends away and I hated her for everything even my life. Kim is no longer my friend no more and I do Remember that she took my lines away at the old Clarington project and even my other songs and now that she not my friend anymore. i am so done with Kimberly Rose Visser

  35. Lauren Luangraj

    I discovered Ashlee Simpson on the big computer and her hairstyle are very awesome Color and I was watching her official music video of Shadow

  36. Juliana G

    In the beginning the melody remembers to "you are beautiful of cristina Aguilera" or just is me?

  37. Jane Doe

    I really liked her music and style. I always thought she was better than Jessica. Jessica is gorgeous and all, but Ashley had talent and depth and originality. Overshadowed is right.

  41. Diego Landon

    When Ashley became known as a better singer than her older sister, Jessica destroyed her career on an episode of SNL with the lip sync scandal. This was the last video that she did before that happened. And in the video they play out the fight between them. The Jessica character gets angry when the tables are turned and she is now jealous of her younger sister's success and shatters a mirror -2:50..As the Ashley character looks on supposedly free now from living in her sister's shadow there's an Illuminati eyeball behind her 👁 3:34.

  42. ShawnFanatic

    I used to love her back then. ;-)

  43. Maricalo87

    The music meaning about the same like Britney spears music Girl in the mirror.

  44. Herbert Osorio

    Pedazo de canción que me ha encantado desde que salió :) en pleno 2019 y yo escuchandola

    Ferdman Romero

    A mi también me encanta sobre todo la melodía definitivamente la época del 2000 al 2009 estuvo cargada de buena música pop y rock alternativo de pronto entre el 2010 como al 2014 hubieron unas pocas buenas canciones incluyendo géneros como la salsa y cuando empezó a ponerse de moda el regaeeton con algunas canciones románticas y con letra aceptable creo que del 2014 al 2019 ya no se escucha nada bueno depronto muy poquitas canciones buenas pero nada como antes ahora uno escucha más que todo musica popular y regaeeton pero el regaetton de los últimos años es basura letras sin sentido y sonidos estresantes y la popular algunas veces se nota tediosa en todo lado ponen esa musica y es lógico en mi país cuanto añoro que en algún lado pongan canciones de ashlee simpson, avril lavigne, pink jeje bueno entre otras artistas femeninas que brillaron en esa época dorada así como artistas hombres que hicieron mucho en el rock y pop ojala esta nueva era del 2020 nos sorprendan con musica fabulosa

  45. 吉澤亮

    Y aqui vienen las comparaciones!! 😎disculpen. Si no les parece como m gusta scribir😙🙌 per yo prefiero a ashley!!🙆

  60. Ashley O

    I cant stand this song, Shes feeling bad for herself. I cant STAND when she says" it used to be so hard being me" and " Don't feel sorry for me". I never felt bad for you Ashlee. She is saying she was a back up dancer when her sister got famous, she got jealous is my opinion. She made good money being a backup dancer. I have had a horrible existence, family Trouble with a capital T. I have a sister who is 3 yrs older than me and she has broken into my apartment (different ones) 4 times and stole everything i owned. Ashlee has a good sister; She has a good family; her dad is a little weird but he loves his daughters. Shes complaining about being in the shadow but she had/has a good sister and good family who helped her get her career off the ground. This whole song is her complaining about nothing and then saying Don't feel sorry for me. I don't think anyone did.

  83. Devyn Fortunati

    We love you ASHLEE!

  84. Michael Young

    This song is so underrated. This album isn’t perfect but there some really great songs on it. I know Ashlee Simpson is like the poster child for “talentless lip syncing rich pop star” but there are honestly some wonderful songs on this and her other album, so don’t let her appearance keep you from listening to her music. She’s better than most people think.

  85. Aquaticus12

    One of my favorite albums growing up and love this song! I really wish she would make more music like this 💙💜!

    Shadow
    Ashlee Simpson.

    I was six years old

    I was stuck inside a broken life
    I couldn't wish away
    She was beautiful
    She had everything and more
    And my escape was hiding out and running for the door
    Somebody listen please
    It used to be so hard being me
    Living in the shadow
    Of someone else's dream
    Trying to find a hand to hold but every touch felt cold to me
    Living in a nightmare
    A never-ending sleep
    But now that I am wide awake
    My chains are finally free
    Don't feel sorry for me
    All the days collided
    One less perfect than the next
    I was stuck inside someone else's life and always second best
    Oh, I love you now 'cause now I realize
    That it's safe outside to come alive in my identity
    So if you're listening

    Living in a nightmare

    But now that I am wide awake
    Then I can finally see
    Don't feel sorry for me
    Mother, sister, father, sister, mother
    Everything's cool now
    Mother, sister, father, sister, mother
    Everything's cool now
    Oh, my life is good
    I've got more than anyone should
    Oh, my life is good
    And the past in the past
    I was living in the shadow
    Of someone else's dream
    Trying to find a hand to hold but every touch felt cold to me
    I'm living in a new day
    I'm living it for me
    And now that I am wide awake
    Then I can finally be
    Don't feel sorry for me
    Don't feel sorry, don't feel sorry for me
    Don't feel sorry, don't feel sorry for me
    Living in, living in, living in the shadow
    Living in, living in, living in a new day.

  90. Sandra Mcgehee

    It’s clearly in the reality of her life in the background of Jessica .......
    Well I personally hope she gets her due and no more shadows because she was Not given the opportunity that her sister Jessica was and I’m certain it was emotionally difficult on her
    I’m happy that she is happy now and it’s worked out for her she is much more talented than Jessica
