She didn't tell me it would be like this,
that it would hurt so much.
Did she feel this pain,
was she too, afraid?
It's scary,
the things they expect from you.
She didn't tell me it would be like this,
the things I would have to do. Did life demand as much from her,
did it force her into situations she couldn't escape from?
It's heavy,
What you do even when you don't wan't to.
She didn't tell me it would be like this.
That I would constantly have to prove that I'm worth it.
Did she feel everyone looking over her shoulder,
those silent scrutinizing eyes?
Peer Pressure.
It will change you,It will break you.
