Look at me now
A shadow of the man I used to be
Look through my eyes
And through the years of loneliness you'll see

To the times in my life
When I could not bear to lose a simple game
And the least of it all
Was the fortune and the fame

But the dream seemed to end
Just as soon as it had begun, was I to know?
For the last thing of all that was on my mind
Was the close at the end of the show

The shadow of a lonely man
Feels nobody else
In the shadow of a lonely, lonely man
I can see myself

Looking out of nowhere
Looking out of nowhere

But the sound of the crowds
When they come to see me now is not the same
And the jest of it all
Is I can't recall my name

But I cling to a hope
Till I can't hold on anymore, anymore
And for all the acclaim, I am all alone
And I see as I look through the door

The shadow of a lonely man
There's nobody else
In the shadow of a lonely, lonely man
I can see myself

Look at me now
A shadow of the man I used to be
