that girl I used to be

she was fearless and carefree

she threw pebbles at your window until you let her in

she told you about what happened with him

and you told her you'd never let no one hurt her again

she trusted you

but i'm not that girl anymore



when the weight of the world sat on my shoulders

you came and you pushed down harder

and finally

it was just too much for me

all the doubts and the fears

they all came out with the tears

you tried to make me into someone i couldn't be

when all the weight came crashing down

i was underneath

and thats how you broke me



i'm not myself

i want to be that girl i was before

but i don't even know her anymore

all the days i wasted changing myself for stupid you

is that all for nothing

i would have fought you with all i've got

but thats not who i am anymore



when the weight of the world sat on my shoulders

you came and you pushed down harder

and finally

it was just too much for me

all the doubts and the fears

came out with the tears

you tried to make me into someone i couldn't be

below all the words and faked smiles

i was underneath

and thats how you broke me



you took me by the hand

and i fell into your arms

a stupid girl desperately in love with you

i tried to do the best i could do

but i guess thats not enough for you



when the weight of the world sat on my shoulders

you came and you pushed down so much harder

and finally

oh, finally

it was just too much for me

all the doubts and the fears

they all came out with my tears

you tried to make me into someone i couldn't be

and finally you see

underneath was the girl i was before

but i know she doesn't love you anymore


The author's comments:
I think this song is self-explanatory. I was crushed by this boy's need for perfection. His idea of what I should be and what I thought I should be were polar opposites, and he tried to change me. I tried to be his perfect girl at first, and then I realized: This is the way I am, take it or leave it. I finally figured out that someone who doesn't appreciate my true self isn't worth wasting my time with.
