They yell,
They tease,
They laugh in your face.
What is it like to really have a place?

All I want is for someone to care.
Oh why, oh why, isn't the world fair?

Won't you listen,
When I'm feeling blue?
I listen for you.

Why do you yell at me,
For the things I cannot control?

Since when is being different,
Been a crime?

Will you see,
I am me.

Will you please stop to see,
That all I want is for you not to tease,
Not to laugh,
Not to yell.

I want to be seen,
For who I am.
I am me,
In my actions,
But really,
I am just like you.

I can relate to that. Ur longing for that place you belong but you can't seen to find it, so you try your best to be you
