I made a sacrifice years ago
A sacrifice of a different kind
I sacrificed my weakness
So I could build a stronger mind
My weakness was being too quiet
And trying to please everyone else
Now I'm speaking up and telling people
That I need to help myself
I am still glad to sacrifice my time
To help someone every now and then
But sometimes I need to concentrate on myself
Sometimes I also need a friend
You can't please everyone
And I'm no longer going to try
I tried to be perfect once
And I almost died
With everyone around you
You'll never be alone (right?)
(Wrong!) None of it was real
And I was left crying every night
They were not my friends
They never knew the real me
I was always very good at
Showing what I wanted them to see
