What do you see?

What do you see?

No, wait. Don't answer that.

I know exactly what you see

You see exactly what I want you to


You see funky hair,

You see a punky style,

You hear a laugh

And there's always a smile


What you don't see

What you don't hear

Is the depression

Is the financial trouble


You don't know that

I don't tell you


What do you see?

I can tell you what I see


I see a girl,

Nothing out of the ordinary

A girl that has problems, 

Nothing out of the ordinary


I see a fighter

Nothing out of the ordinary

I see a survivor

Nothing out of the ordinary


I am nothing out of the ordinary

Just a girl trying to put herself through school

Just a girl who made it out of her past alive

Just a girl with a case of depression


Nothing out of the ordinary.


But I hope and I hope

That one day someone looks at me

And says "I bet she could be EXTRAORDINARY"

She just needs that chance.
