It’s what I want
But I won’t get it

What I need
I try not to fret it

It’s so hard ‘cause the other ones are there…

My heart constricts
I fill with longing

To fit in
To start belonging

To that untouchable world…

Where everyone knows their name
They know how to play their game

But the hardest thing
That promise ring

So no matter how many times they mess up
Or how many times it takes to get the right cut

They’ll always be there
And I’ll be; where?

Stuck in a corner
“Oh, just ignore her

Yeah, she’s one in a million
The one that won’t fit in

Just shut the door
Don’t let her take the floor

She don’t got what it takes
She doesn’t have what makes

A star
She won’t go far”

But my heart still constricts
And I fill with longing

To fit in
To start belonging

Or at least to be recognized
To see in people’s eyes

That they know who I am
Know where I stand
Know where I stay my hand

I want them to know me for me
I wanna be

Lifted above the crowd
I want to hear my name cried out loud

For my heart to – burst from love
To be seen from high above

That’s why

My heart constricts
I fill with longing

To fit in
To start belonging

But then
I come down to Earth

And I see
My humble hearth

And open my eyes
Drink in the bright gray skies

And dream

My heart constricts
I fill with longing

To fit in
To start belonging

Now that you mention it, fret does seem like an odd word choice...but I'm not sure what I would use instead...

Thank you so much for commenting on TEN pieces! o.O You sure have patience...

Favorite Quote:
"According to some, heroic deaths are admirable things. (Generally those who don't have to do it. Politicians and writers spring to mind.) I've never been convinced by this argument, mainly because, no matter how cool, stylish, composed, unflappable, manly, or defiant you are, at the end of the day you're also dead. Which is a little too permanent for my liking." — Jonathan Stroud (Ptolemy's Gate)

The Good:  I loved this!  It was really great, and like ImDumbStruck said, the "just ignore her" part was great!  Awesome work!

The Bad: I'm not sure if "fret" is the right word, but I could be wrong.

The Random: Great job!

Eventually I'm going to record my songs and put them up on Youtube (hopefully)...I just haven't had time to do it yet.
