Chorus:
I feel like I’m the only girl,
Tryin to find a place in this world.
Alone, afraid and insecure,
Trying to be like her or her or her.

Verse 1:
There are times when i cry myself to sleep.
And I wonder why it’s just me
Who goes through these rough times?
And I, I keep my head down low
Cause I never really know what people are seeing
When they look at me.

Chorus:
Oh, I feel like I’m the only girl
Tryin to find a place in this world.
Alone, afraid and insecure
Trying to be like her or her or her.

Verse 2:
As you can see it’s really hard to be just me,
And I wonder why it seems so hard to do
But I’ll fight to see the light that will shine
Shine on who I am and who I’m supposed to be!

Chorus:
Cause I, I’m not the only girl whose
Tryin to find her place in this world.
Whose alone, afraid and insecure
Trying to be like her and her and her.

Verse 3:
I’m so tired of trying to be
Everyone else except me.
So it’s time to embrace who I am
And take a stand for others just like me!

Chorus:
Cause I, I’m not the only girl whose
Tryin to find her place in this world.
Whose alone, afraid and insecure
Trying to be like her and her and her.

Music softly plays

“Be yourself, everyone else is taken!”


The author's comments:
This is very personal, it's how I've felt for as long as I can remember...it comes from my heart, and I know it may not flow that well, but it's something I had to write for those other than me who think they have to be just like that girl or that girl, and who they truely are isn't good enough. You are all beautiful and special! I love you all!!?
