How come you never got bullied?

What's so wrong with me?

I guess you're pretty, clever and talented

But none of that is me

---

And why is your life so easy?

It's not hard to laugh and smile

But me? I'd kill for happiness

Just for a little while

---

And why do you get all As and A*s?

Your failure is a B

I struggle to keep up in class

Lucky to get a C

---

And how do you look so good in a binbag?

Mirrors are my enemy

No matter how hard I try

I hate the girl looking back at me

---

And why are you bursting with creativity?

You can paint and draw and write

If I put pen, brush or pencil to paper

I end up stuck all night

---

And how are so popular?

People desperate to be with you

I want to be a nicer person

Nobody likes me as much as you

---

I just can't help but compare myself

To people that I'll never be

Yes, I must be jealous of you

'Cos nothing's right with me
