You Don't Know
Author: Brandi


im so tired
i need to sleep
fall into darkness, endless time to weep
no one to catch me,
no one to care
no one to see
whats really there
looked down upon
like i carry shame
you're just looking for someone to blame
i make mistakes, i cheat and lie
and you just sit there and ask me why
well ill tell you
come inside here and step into my shoe
i constantly try to impress
trying to look and dress the best
constantly compared to those around me
oh what would i do for someone to see
i cant be perfect, but i can try
always aiming so high
but don't get me wrong, you're right there with me
expecting too much and not letting me be
i set myself up for failure
i get sucked in and there's no cure
no matter what i do i cant be great at everything
and when i slip up, you always remind me
you think "forget being queen, you need to be king"
back off a bit
start being a friend
realize for once that you don't know sh*t
look at yourself, you mess up too
quit judging me and start looking at you
