Standing in the back again
Tears roll down my cheek
Wanting to show the world
But alas I am too weak
I just want to be pretty
To be one of them
I'm sorry I'm not lovely
To this fate I'm condemned
I tried to pretend
I could be a star
I tried to be just like you
I never got too far
Attending all events
Doing what you asked
Pretending I was interested
Id wear this pretty mask
I hate being fake
It hurts me to pretend
I'm obviously not like you
In disaster this would end
I think the force is over
I'm not following the rules
And when your all without me
Tis you who look the fools
