The Girl Behind The Curtain

Pay no attention to the girl behind the curtain
She's shy and insecure, she’s anxious and uncertain
She hides the way she really feels by giggling and flirtin'
Hoping no one pays attention to the girl behind the curtain

Pay no attention to the way she plays along
To cover how she doesn't really know what's going on
Looking to the others to make sure she gets it right
Wishing interacting wasn't always such a fight

Pay no attention to her slowness on the uptake
When she responds in such a way you’re sure her jokes and laughs are all fake
'Cause she kind of doesn't get it, but she wants to fit in with the crowd
She hopes no one will notice if her laughter's kind of over-loud

Pay no attention to her overwrought anxiety
She wants more than anything to be liked by society
But she doesn't know the way to act or how she is perceived
Making friends is hard; she can’t decide who she should be

Pay no attention to the fact that I'm this girl
I try to hide my nervousness when I’m out in the world
I know I'm different than my friends, but try to hide it all
I'm scared that if you look too close, my pretenses will fall

Pay no attention to the girl behind the curtain
She's shy and insecure, she’s anxious and uncertain
She hides the way she really feels by giggling and flirtin'
Hoping no one pays attention to the girl behind the curtain
