lyrics

I can't sleep.
I'm too tired for this.
I don't want to be broken in and
whipped and trained to spend my days
in a place I hate for a measly wage.
It's just too much pain to work today.
I'll try to keep sane until I get paid
so I can feed myself another day.
It's just not my way.
I can't live this way.
It's just not my way.
I can't live this way.

I met a guy who says I'm pretty, I could be a model if I tried
but when we got to talking about tops and bottoms he lied, he lied.

Just please give me something to stop this ache.
Just please give me something to fill this lake.
Just please give me something my heart can take.
Just please give me something fake.

Maybe when I grow up I can paint it on my face;
Another name that I despise, one to take my place.
Then I'll be complete and I won't have to worry anymore
and I know I'm not the first to be so selfishly adored.

I told him that I just can't say those words, "You're mine, you're mine."
but if we were to go our separate ways today, I'd cry. I'd cry.

Just please let me know why I feel this way.
Just please make me feel confident today.
Just please understand that I can not stay.
Just please make it go away.

Maybe when I grow up I could be a better friend.
I'll learn a lesson I'll despise; one to clear my head.
When I turn to see, all of my worries will be gone
and I'll finally get some sense because I'll know that I was wrong.

Maybe when I grow up I'll see you standing there;
another place that I despise near all my fallen hair.
When I go to sleep, you won't have to worry again
because you'll know that I've done well, or I've convinced myself I did.
