I'm going to tell him what I really think
And not me afriad of what he might say.

I'm going to tell him I lied
Then tell him the reason why.

He's going to learn why I try,
And I'm going to shed a tear for him

I'm going to attempt something new,
No matter how crazy it might be.

Their going to see inside my mind
And I'm going to make sure of that.

When I'm in tears,
I'm going to wipe them all away,
And give myself a reason to smile.

I'm not going to let the little things get to me
And I'm going to forget why I took that so seriously.

I'm going to do something they would never agree to
I'm going to do something I want to do, for myself.

I'm going to get his number
And call him.

I'm going to ask him why?
And tell him what I think.

I'm not going to let it get to me anymore
I'm going to stand-up for myself.

I'm going to push myself
To do something I never thought possible.

I'm going to ask him,
And hope he says yes.

I'm going to think of someone else,
And do something for them.

I'm not going to be afraid anymore
I'm going to let it out.

I'm going to thank them
Even if I don't know them.

I'm going to discover something new,
Even if its about myself.

I could go on forever of what I want to do, 
but sometimes I have to think of what I've already done.

I've cried over him
And never addmitted it.

I lied,
Because I was afraid.

I held back
Because I didn't want to get hurt

I didn't speak my mind,
Because fear took over.

I sat back
And just watched
I didn't say a word
But now I wish I did.

I realized the most important things in life
I over look and take for granted.

I learned why
But I wish I knew the truth.

I let it get to me
And cause more pain.

I wished for something
I knew would never happen
But I knew I was only lying to myself.

I learned that Famliy was there for a reason
And so were friends.

I questioned everything
Instead of being grateful for just having it.

I realized there is more to life
Than what I think there is.

I found myself,
But I only found part of myself.

So I'm sitting here
Wishing I knew more
Than just simply enjoying
What I already know.
