Dreaming Outside.

The girl you see now? No, there's a lot more.
A whole other side; a heavy locked door.
Nobody knows what she's hid inside.
Nobody dares take away her pride.

She's got her own dreams, as big as can be.
All she needs now is some gaurantee.
She gives all she has, to reach for the stars.
But all it leaves her, are deep hurting scars.

She knows what she wants.
But no one can see
the magic she has;
all she can be.
They all see through her.
Right through her eyes.
But just wait for the day
when she touches the sky.

With the weight on her shoulders,
she crawls through the day.
And when no one is looking
She goes her own way.

She knows what she wants,
but no one can see
the magic she has;
all she can be.
They all see through her
right through her eyes.
But just wait for the day,
when she touches the sky.

This girl follows no one.
She'll walk her own direction.
She chases her own dreams,
with no need for protection.

I know what I want
but no one can see
the magic I have;
All I can be.
They all saw through me,
Right through my eyes.
But today's the day,
that I'll touch the sky.

I like how you put your self in another person's point of view. Then at the end, you put your self in as you were talking about you.

Sorry if that's confusing. It sounded a lot better in my head. Keep Writing though!! I loved this one!! =)
