Give Up

December 16, 2010
You keep me awake, you keep me stressed.
You’re the only one I’m trying to impress.
But no matter what I do, or how hard I try…
I’m always going to only be invisible,
When all I really want is to be invincible.

Being a teenage girl is rough,
Make-up, hair, perfection is tough.
There’s only one thing that all of us want.
We want to be told we’re good enough,
We want to be told we’re the least bit loved.

I’m beginning to give up on trying so hard,
I’m about to stop trying to get a grip on your heart.
I just want to be me, but it’s never worth it.
I can never win, there must be something wrong,
There must be a reason I’m writing this song.

I’m not being selfish, just trying to find myself.
Want to know why the hell I always seem to fail.
I’ve been waiting on someone to show me what I’m missing,
When I couldn’t admit that I could do it on my own,
All this time, searching, noticing I’ve been, and will be alone.

Rain is pouring, filling and draining my heart,
I never knew that I’d be here from the start.
You’re not a part of me and I’ll never have to worry,
I’ll never again wonder why there’s no need to hurry.
You’ve never been the one I need to amaze,
I have no reason to take your breath away.

I’m just about to give up on trying so hard,
I’m going to stop trying to get a grip on your heart.
I just want to be me, but it’s never worth it.
I can never win, there must be something wrong,
There must be a reason I’m writing this song.

This is what’s out there, I’ve been too afraid to say it,
This is my ‘f--- you’ song to those who deserve it.
I’m sick of using up an hour picking out the out-fit you’ll like,
I’m done trying to fix every single little stray hair.
Trying so hard every day has gotten me nowhere.

I’ve finally given up on trying so d--- hard,
It’s not even worth trying to get a grip on your heart.
I just want to be me, but it’s never worth it.
I can never win, there must be something wrong,
I knew there was a reason I was writing this song.
