"You're Not Alive Unless You're Living"

People never see beyond my face
There are terrible memories I could never erase
They never look beyond the screams and shouts
That’s why their opinions about me are nothing but doubts

There is something beyond these pretty hazel eyes
I’m tired of being surrounded by lies
Can’t you hear my humble cry?
Am I ever going to be anything better than what I’m surrounded by?

When I tell you my story, you won’t think that’s the way I was raised
You probably think I’m just an innocent girl who get good grades
But you’re wrong so now you have the chance to hear my voice
Making it in life? I have no choice

Someday I will graduate from college
I’m already street smart so why not add some book knowledge
I will prove everyone wrong about their perspective of me
Besides, I must be the change I want to see
