I'm Flawless

Everyone thinks I'm flawless in this school

The teachers, the students, the janitor that cleans the pool.

Everyone thinks I can do it all

Good grades, a girlfriend, and a star playing baseball.

Everyone thinks my life is stress-free.

But what if they saw me crying in front of my TV?

Everyone thinks everything has been put in my possession

Have they seen me working, my sleep schedule has been in regression.


Everyone has put their fath into my hands

I feel pressure too, sweat so much I need a headband.

Everyone depends on me for a smile

It's hard to keep them happy, everyday my mind wanders a mile.

Everyone expects me to go to a top college

Is it clear to them, their pressure has deflated my knowledge.

Everyone thinks I'm flawless

I'm flawless.
