I won't bend.
I won't break.
Don't you say I'm a mistake.
I know it's a lie.
I just want to know why.
Why do you never have time?
Why am I always last in line?
Why aren't I enough?
Why do I always have to be tough?
Don't you know you're the reason I am who I am?
Stop screwing around!
Step up!
For once be a man!
Be the person i need you to be,
and stop blaming all that goes wrong on me.
