Highlight

Verse 1:
Always hidden in the dark
Never wanted to talk
I have talent
But they'll never see
If I let fears go
And just do what I know
Maybe they'll see it
And stop being mean

Chorus:
Too afraid
Too ashamed
Back out again
On my only chance
Can't suck it up
Scared I'm not good enough
But I feel most alive
When down comes the spotlight
And the curtains roll away
The highlight of my day

Verse 2:
Coming out of the shyness
I grew too familiar with
And nobody understands
I was always so quiet
Now I walk around with a smile on
Old girl is gone

Chorus: x2

Bridge:
And I know I have potential
I know I'm better than what I wanna show
Scared everyone will leave and go
But it's time for self-esteem to stop being low

Chorus: x1

Verse 1: x1

Verse 2: x1

Bridge: x1

End:
The curtains roll away
The highlight of my day

Very good! I really like the message of it, one piece of advice though, maybe you could throw a metaphore or two in there? Maybe play around with the words a little,  so the message isn't as obvious, if you know what I mean. But the message is beautful, and I can definetly relate :) Good job!
