Why is it such a crime to think you’re cute?
I would take it as a compliment,
But obviously you didn’t.
Now that you know I really feel,
Why do you have to act so real?
You really shouldn’t know.
It’s not my fault.
If I was maybe just a touch prettier,
You’d like me too.

Even if I’m not as beautiful as her.
Even if I’m not as cute as him.
I don’t see why it should matter in this world that we live in.
Cause even if I’m not as beautiful as her or as cute as him,
I’m not the same,
And I don’t see why.
Cause just take a look inside,
See the difference,
I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Now every time I walk down the hallway,
It will never be the same.
Cause every time I look at you,
You’ll be thinking why is that creepy girl staring at me again.
I know I don’t seem very skater like
But that’s just a side of me,
You’ll have to discover on your own.

Even if I’m not as beautiful as her.
Even if I’m not as cute as him.
I don’t see why it should matter in this world that we live in.
Cause even if I’m not as beautiful as her or as cute as him,
I’m not the same,
And I don’t see why.
Cause just take a look inside,
See the difference,
I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

I see you with that other girl everyday.
And when I walk by,
You look at me as if to say,
Tough luck my friend.
I would kill to be her,
Just in your arms.
But I know that’s not a possibility.
Cause I'm not the same.
How did one little mistake turn into a big wrong thing.
I don’t know how or why it did but you’re killing me inside.

Even if I’m not as beautiful as her.
Even if I’m not as cute as him.
I don’t see why it should matter in this world that we live in.
Cause even if I’m not as beautiful as her or as cute as him,
I’m not the same,
And I don’t see why.
Cause just take a look inside,
See the difference,
I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Pleasantly surprised
Just take a look inside
Pleasantly surprised
Just take a look inside
Pleasantly surprised
Just take a look inside

I am the same.
