I'm Going To Win

Why do you care what I say?

I fume and I cry and I try to get my own way, I bluster out loud while I really hurt inside, I act like I'm tough when you hurt my pride.

I'm trying real hard to make my own way, but I'm always pushed around, and I'm not okay.

I want to be happy and live my life, I'm just so tired of all the strife.

So I put on a brave front, and plaster on a grin, but I don't care what you say, I'm going to win.
