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.

Yeah, wow. you really have a gift for releasing that raw emotion into verbal colors of a pallet. Not sure what I just said, but I was trying to say, "DAMN you're good!"

Aww, it's so sad. I like it, but I'm sorry for any emotions that inspired you.
