You never tell me how good Iíve done,
You always hear how I messed up.
Failed that test, told a white lie, turned gay.
Iím not perfect in your eyes,
But you donít see how hard I tried.
I grew up dreaming, hoping, yearning
To be better than expected,
But in your eyes Iím just a failure.
I try not to cry, I try to be strong,
But my emotions break me up,
When all Iíve heard is how you never wanted me.
