I don’t belong here-
You’re too good for me.
You’re everything I need
And everything I want.
But you don’t see me there,
Because I’m just not as fair
As the other girls around me.
I’m the sulking one, in the corner.
And nobody seems to give a damn
About the girl who hides from herself
And never lets anyone get close enough to
Show her that shining is what she was meant for.
