Day by day boisterous people walk my way
I sit in classrooms with people who speak their minds
Their confidence is so high they don't care what they say
Oh how I wish I could be the same way
I feel like a little girl trapped in a tower so far away
I'm left sitting in silence watching my peers as they play
But oh, how I have so much to say
Around friends I am funny, a true comedian
My family can't keep me from talking, There's no how no way
But to others I seem quiet with nothing to say
"Sssh, just keep quiet they'll judge you!"
"Sssh, just keep quiet they'll shun you!"
I toss and I turn and I burn on the inside
I scream and I wonder, how much longer must I hide
But I'm afraid I fear criticism with their judgmental minds
Slick and sly gazes coming from their slick and sly eyes
Their grins hiding jokes and secrets within like a locked door
And somehow it seems like I'm the only one who can't get in
So I'll just let them walk pass me
Do I care?
They,ve never asked me
I'll just keep to my self and let them judge
Just pay no attention to the girl behind the curtain, nobody does.
