When you say that your my best friend,
When you say we've known eachother forever,
It's just a big white lie.
You don't know me,
You don't know who I am,
You don't know what I'm like,
When my bedroom door is closed.

(Chorus)
So don't say that you know me, don't tell me you love me,
'cause the girl you claim to know,
Is not me.
You don't know me,
you don't know who I am,
You don't know what I'm like
When my bedroom door is closed.

You think of me as that little girl,
the one with pigtails cinched with bows.
A pink dress and rosy cheeks completes your memory.
But thats no longer my reality.

(Chorus)

When my bedroom door is closed
I blast Tom Petty
I dance like hell
I sing as if there's no tomorrow.
And I know,
Who I am,
An I know,
Who I'm not.
I'm not..lost in another person's perfect mixed up world.

I'm original, baby. Even if yo don't know that.

(Chorus)

Even if you don't know that, yeah, 'cause my bedroom door is closed.


The author's comments:
I wrote this a while ago when I was mad at the people closest in my life for not really realizing who I am anymore. My family still thought of me as their little girl, even though i'm now in high school. My friends still saw me as the shy, introvert. Even though I'd become really outgoing. I was fed up with them not seeing the real me, but then I realized I never really gave them the chance. Get it, "cux my bedroom door is CLOSED"?? haha..quite clever, if i may... hope you like it.
