A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often - just to save it from drying out completely.
Pam Brown

{Verse 1}
I’ve been so afraid to say my name
The real one
The one they do not know
“cause I was so scared
About that they’d say
That I didn’t know about

But what’s the point
I mean they talk about me anyway
So why should I be afraid

Because the ones that I thought were true were fake a
And the ones that I pushed away were there til the end
They were my, they were my true friend
I’ve been tryna run from this for a long, long time
But time after time it still seemed that I couldn’t hide
Hide from the truth so
Since I trust that you’ll be with me any way
I might as well tell you
Might as well tell you
My not so secret, secret

Ok there it is I’m done
Now what you gotta say
What you gotta say bout that new?
It shocked you
I’m feelin’ kinda good right now
To know your still my friend and I
I’m not alone

I’m livin like I’m dyin’
Ain’t got no fears
Got the haters on the back burner
No time for tears
I’m not alone
I’m not alone


They said I would never make it
They mocked me to my face
And I went away wonderin’
What’s so bad about Ari Lyn
But look at me now
You se me glowin’
Brighter than the stars, sun and the moon
Turns out you don’t need them to be self confident
I guess that’s why they call it self confidence and not “them” confidence
So I’m glad I’m free from you
I gave you all this power
Never worked for myself
Tryna be somebody else
