I'm tired of being alone.
I'm tired of being the girl who is by herself.
I'm tired of being a fly on the wall.
I'm tired of being invisible.

So I'm gonna take my chances.
Today, I'm going to dress differently.
I'm going to act differently.
I don't want to be unknown.
I want everyone to know who I am when people say my name.
I want to be loved by everyone.
I'm not afraid anymore.

I'm gonna dye my hair.
I'm going to get a make over.
I'm gonna get new clothes.
I'll talk to the guys, instead of just mumbling.
I'll make friends with the popular girls.

I will make myself known.
I'm sick and tired of people asking who I was.

I can't keep living this way.
I will make it.
I will be gorgeous.
I will be loved.

You won't bring me down anymore.


No more quiet girl.
I will be loud and act out.
Because that is who I am.
I'm tired of holding back who I really am.

So today, this is going to change.

I'm not afraid anymore.
