I am just a human, making my mistakes
I have no difference, to the rest of the human race
but then you go and judge me again and again
I know I'm perfect, so where does it end? . . .
I know, I'd never say

but some friends you are
I know, I'd never say

Get the hell away



sometimes I wanna scream . . .

WOAH
when the going gets rough I just gotta hang tough, yeah
WOAH
You know I'm not your average girl, yeah I'm gonna blow your world
so get ready . . . . for me
But these words mean nothing you see
They're in bottles, floating out, to sea

I've always felt trapped
In my skin
In my head
I know I gotta break out but in myself I start to doubt
You've broken me down by saying I am no good.
That I'm a mess like the rest who don't make it with the best
I know I'd never say

some friends you are
I know I'd never say

I wanna break away!



I just tell myself . . .

WOAH
when the going gets rough I just gotta hang tough, yeah
WOAH
You know I'm not your average girl, yeah I'm gonna blow your world
so get ready . . . . for me
But these words mean nothing you see
They're in bottles, floating out, to sea

My words are in a bottle
Drifting out to sea
No one will ever find them
Except for me . . .

WOAH
when the going gets rough I just gotta hang tough, yeah
WOAH
You know I'm not your average girl, yeah I'm gonna blow your world
so get ready . . . . for me
But these words mean nothing you see
They're in bottles, floating out, to sea


Then I found a real friend, and you know what they did?
they swam though my sea
built up my self esteem
they found my bottles
broke them apart
set my words free
now I can be me



Now I can scream . . .

WOAH
when the going gets rough I just gotta hang tough, yeah
WOAH
You know I'm not your average girl, yeah I'm gonna blow your world
so get ready . . . . for me
these words
they mean more
then you ever did to me!
You can have, my broken bottles
as they wash, on the beach

This is an actual song I wrote, and am slowly creating a piano cover for it. I hope you all enjoy :)

I know right!? Its just weird to read them rather then hear them, yet I like it because if gives you a feel for what the person is actuallly saying rather then the sound. I don't know, but anyways thanks! :)

Die my dear? Why that's the last thing I'll do

I thought it was good, like everyone else said very long. I always feel odd reading song lyrics rather than hearing them, but that's not anything against you, it's just me.

Overall, I liked it!The song is very long, but it's well written. This is something that I think I would like to hear.
