why can't people

Why can't people leave me alone
Why do people think I am great
Why can't people see the real me
Why can't people stop talking about me
Why do people say I am so good when I am not...

I am just like everybody else...

Why can't people open their eyes
Why do people care what I do
Why can't people wake up and see what's in front of them
Why can't people keep their eyes open instead of closing them
Why do people misjudge me...

For someone that I could never be...

Why can't people listen to me
Why do people think I am someone that I am not
Why can't people except me for who I am
Why can't people let me be who I want to be and not want they want be to be
Why do people force me to do things that I am not into doing…

I don't see why they can't leave me alone...

Why can't people realise this isn't me no more
Why do people think this is who I want to be
Why can't people see this is no where near who I want to be
Why can't people see I don't like them
Why do people think I like doing this...

I used to like this too everyone started to find out about it...

Why can't people keep this too themselves
Why do people tell others without asking if it was ok
Why can't people keep it too their selves even when someone didn't
Why can't people learn that I don't want to do this and people saying I should
Why do people force me to do this when they know I don't want to...

I wish people would listen to me for once
I wish people would realise I don't want this to be my life
I wish people would stop making a big deal about this...
