You don’t understand

What it feels like to be alone

In a room full of people that you love

You don’t understand

That the smiles that I show

Most of them are only just pretend

You don’t understand

That there’s more to every story

And I have demons deep beneath my skin

You don’t understand

That the way that I’m feeling

The pain and hurt it never really ends

But I’ll try to breathe again for you

And I’ll try to feel how I need to

 

The weight of the world is on my shoulders

And I feel it pushing down on me

Makes me wish that I was never born

But the strength inside me is growing bolder

And I can feel it rising up in me

About to take on this whole world by storm

Don’t count me out yet

Because I’m not done

I’m still here

And I’ve just begun

Being who I want to be

Instead of who I used to be

You just need to learn to love me

Ready or not

I am here to play

I am proud

And I’m not ashamed

Of being who I want to be

Instead of who I used to be

You just need to learn to love me

 

You don’t understand

What it’s like to be afraid

To step outside and hold your lover’s hand

You don’t understand

That this is not a choice I made

And love is here to give us all a chance

But I’ll try to breathe again

Breathe again for you

 

The weight of the world is on my shoulders

And I feel it pushing down on me

Makes me wish that I was never born

But the strength inside me is growing bolder

And I can feel it rising up in me

About to take on this whole world by storm

Don’t count me out yet

Because I’m not done

I’m still here

And I’ve just begun

Being who I want to be

Instead of who I used to be

You just need to learn to love me

Ready or not

I am here to play

I am proud

And I’m not ashamed

Of being who I want to be

Instead of who I used to be

You just need to learn to love me

 

You can push me around

But I won’t back down

I was lost

But now I’m found

I was blind

But now I see

For the first time

I can breathe

 

So don’t count me out yet

Because I’m not done

I’m still here

And I’ve just begun

Being who I want to be

Instead of who I used to be

You just need to learn to love me

Ready or not

I am here to play

This is my life

And it’s not a game

I’m being who I want to be

Instead of who I used to be

You just need to learn to love me.
