This Girl Inside of Me


United States
40° 48' 0.7272" N, 122° 10' 45.4548" W

Lost in a world tryin' play pretend

Tryin' to prove myself to my best friend.

Wantin' to be somebody, but there's this

girl inside of me fightin' insecurity

Everyone says this girl is beautiful,

but I'm strugglin' to see past

the five pounds gained to hide this

pain inside of me. Lookin' at my own

reflection, I wonder who I really am

This girl inside of me, she's wantin' to

to be free. Tired of all the games.

Wants to find her identity.
