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, yeah, I can finally be
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
