One day I'll smile
Because I showed the whole wide world
That all the while
I lost time after time, something small but special was curled.
A tiny spark that needed help to light
A tiny spark too small to fight
When you licked your fingers and let it burn out.
One day I'll leap
Into the person I was always meant to be
But I'll still keep
All the things that you all failed to see.
A person who never made the cut
A person who always failed but
Only broke in the shelter of her own four walls
One day I'll grow tall
And I'll show you all, everything that you missed
You'll all seem so small
All those judging my worth and the boys that I've kissed
Those boys that thought I was cheap
Those boys that I couldn't keep
Once they'd used up everything that i had
One day I'll put on a show
I'll show you that I'm not meant to be,
Stuck in the chorus line where no one can see,
The way that I can pretend
The way I can straight send
Goosebumps down your thin skin
When you think Of the girl I've been
When you think of how small I was
When you think how I cried because
You never gave me the chance to be
Something more than...plain old me....
One day I wont be so easy to overlook
One day I wont be the girl that you took
To be worth nothing more than three lines
One day I wont come third place
One day I wont think of the look on your face
When you smiled and told me I wasn't good enough...
I'll shout to you, I'll say to your faces, I'll show you
that I will go and set the world on fire
Right. On. Cue.
