You only know If you fit the status quo
Friends that aren't my friends at all
People who act like they're better
but I was once a friend of yours
what changed since then?
You ignore me like I'm not even there
Like I'm stupid or irrelevent
But you should be scared
I will be your boss one day.
I'll pay your check that feeds your kids
and I'll remember what you did
When you sweetly ask me How I've been
This time you won't turn away
like there is nothing to what I have to say
This time you won't talk to me like I'm a child
because unlike you, In my teen years I am not wild
I do not run amuck with boys
I do not have all the technology
but one day you will respect me.
You'll pretend to be the friend, you once were to me.
And I won't pretend that I'm listening.
