#159-There Was A Time

Sure, go ahead and make fun of me.

You say I put too much perfume on,

But that's because there was a time,

When I was so depressed,

That I didn't feel like taking any showers,

And people would tell me I smelled bad.

You say I talk too loud,

But that's because there was a time,

When I barely talked at all,

And people always told me to speak up.

You say I'm fake,

And I might be,

But that's probably because there was a time,

When I tried to be the real me...

You say, sometimes, I wear too much makeup,

But that's because there was a time,

When I didn't wear any,

And people would call me ugly.

So I don't want to change myself,

But I feel like I always have to...
