Stand Still, Look Pretty


Sometimes I want to paint my face
and pretend that I am someone else.
I just get so fed up that I no longer want to look at myself.

I know others have problems that are worse than mine.
And I don't want you to think that I'm complaining all the time.
But I hate the way you look at me I have to say.
I wish I could start all over again.

I am slowly starting to fall apart.
I wish you could take a walk in my shoes for a start.
Cause you think it’s so easy being me.
You just stand still, and look pretty.

Sometimes I find myself shaking in the middle of the night.
And then it hits me, and I can't even believe this is my life.

The terrors never seem to give me peace.

And all I want is an easy release.

So tired of being brave, I want to run and disappear until the world is safe.

Wish I could run to you to escape.


But people have problems that are worse than mine.

Please don't assume I'm complaining all the time.

I just wish that everyone would go and shut their mouths!
Cause I'm really not strong enough to deal with this.

I am slowly starting to fall apart.
I wish you could take a walk in my shoes for a start.
Cause you think it’s so easy being me.
You just stand still, and look pretty.

When will you realize there is so much more to me?
Not just a pretty face for all to see.
Don't waste more time believing you have me perfect in your case.
Cause I will break the glass of this picture frame and forget this place.

People do have problems worse then mine.
And I'm startin to feel like I complain all the time.
Seeing myself through your glass is killing me.
So I'll take my heart and be free.

I am slowly starting to fall apart.
I wish you would take a walk in my shoes for a start.
Cause you think it’s so easy being me.
You just stand still, and look pretty.
