People call me emo
I’m emotional and wear all black, SO WHAT
People call me punk
I listen to The Ramones and challenge normalicy, SO WHAT
These are the labels you give me
I hear them all
I know I’m shy does that make me emo?
I know I'm weird does that make me punk?
I am confused
Learning to adjust to this new life
I may be irresponsible sometimes
But that doesn’t make me punk
I may be depressed some times
That doesn’t make me emo
I am curious about my life
And sometimes careless as well
That doesn’t mean you can give me these labels
They may not be true
Quit calling me emo
Quit calling me punk
Let me live my life
Let me live

Just because we are labeled it does not mean we have to be what they say we are, it might not be who we are.
