Open up your eyes and can't you see

This is who I am

I'm not this fake you want me to be

And you know I never can

Just pretend to be

This make believe

Girl you want to see

And what my heart wants most of all

You think I can't achieve


But you can't trample on my spirit

No you can't mold my heart

Into wanting something I don't need

Cause I don't fit the part


But look at me now I'm on my way

To the world I always dreamed of

And you sit there and wonder how

I always kept this love

For something you all doubted

But something I believed

And now it's time for you to meet

The girl I'm meant to be
