Sometimes I feel like I don't belong in my own family,
Sometimes I feel left out.

I am the middle child,
And I need love too.

I've been out of my family for three years,
And I'm going crazy.

I feel like there is a part of me that is gone,
Like there's this hole in my heart.

I just wanna belong again,
I just wanna feel like I'm a part of my family.

When I'm home I feel like my mom gives my two brothers more attention than she gives me.
Is it because I'm not home anymore?
Is it because I'm bad?
I have yet to find that answer.

I went home for Christmas and I felt so left out,
I just wanted to go back to where I came from.

I just need to get back to where I was with my family,
I just wanna be loved...
