I used to be sorry,
for not being who you wanted.
A soft wall-flower,
never homecoming queen.

And I used to wish, to make you proud.But let's face it, that's not me.

Here I am, uncovered and uncensored!
Here I am, this time there's no pretending.

I'm tired of sitting in the dark counting the smiles that come my way
This time things are gonna change.
Here I am.

So I can't be perfect like the
thoughts inside your head.
Who could be?

I'm not living my life the way I am to embarrass or impress you, no.
This time, it's for me!

Here I am! Uncovered and uncensored. This time there's no shame.

I wanna be selfish and stupid, live like there's no tomorrow. I wanna feel beautiful in my own skin!!

I wanna be me. I wanna be me!
There is no pretending, let's live
like there's no ending.
I wanna feel free!

Here I am, uncovered and uncensored
and I'm sorry, if it's not who you want me to be...

A declaration. All I have to say is, here I am.
