'Why should I care what other people think of me? I am who I am. And who I wanna be.'


















- Avril Lavigne


You ain't gonna make a fool out of me,
Cos baby, I believe,
And now I know where I belong,
To me you're gone

You never understood,
Hell, you never, ever could,
I've been humiliated,
Used, lied to and hated,
Oh, oh, oh, to me you're gone

You knew my feelings,
Not that you really cared,
I knew about you're dealings,
For a long time I was ensnared

Now I know that I can do better,
Because you never even sent a letter,
And I was the only one who really cared,
Who tried to help when you were scared

You never understood,
Hell, you never, ever could,
I've been humiliated,
Used, lied to and hated,
Oh, oh, oh to me you're gone

Oh, I'm just me,
There's no one I'd rather be,
Just wait and see,
Cos there's a shining star in me...

Why are you staring at me,
Cos you're driving me crazy,
Cos you can look at me,
But I can't look at you,
Oh My God, seriously?
You can't tell me what to do

You never understood,
Hell, you never, ever could,
I've been humiliated,
Used, lied to and hated,
Oh, oh, oh to me you're gone

You never understood,
Hell, you never, ever could,
I've been humiliated,
Used, lied to and hated,
Oh, oh, oh to me you're gone

Oh, I'm just me,
There's no one I'd rather be,
Just wait and see,
Cos there's a shining star in me...

Why are you staring at me,
Cos you're driving me crazy,
Cos you can look at me,
But I can't look at you,
Oh My God, seriously?
You can't tell me what to do

You never understood,
Hell, you never, ever could,
I've been humiliated,
Used, lied to and hated,
Oh, oh, oh to me you're gone

Oh, I can fight my shadows,
Fight my demons in the dark,
I can get through tomorrow,
And I don't need you finally

You never understood,
Hell, you never, ever could,
I've been humiliated,
Used, lied to and hated,
Oh, oh, oh to me you're gone

You never understood,
Hell, you never, ever could,
I've been humiliated,
Used, lied to and hated,
Oh, oh, oh to me you're gone

I recently wrote this because my 'friend' started teasing me and bullying my other friends. I don't want to be friends with her again but she has this hold over you and she drags you back in so by writing this song I hope to break free

This song really connected with me personally because I went through a similar situation, and sometimes wrote songs to get my feelings across. Anyways, you did a very good job conveying all of the emotions! I only wish I could hear you sing it!

For some odd reason my comment didn't post -_-
So I'll sumarise it; it is very good, as a rock and metal fan I easily understood it. It worked well, and was fairly catchy, it might need a little work but for me I thought it was great. Well Done! :)
