    Outta Here

    If no one needs me, then there's no point in sticking around unless I'm enjoying myself. Well, I'm not enjoying myself, so I think it's time to go. "I think I'll go to Boston. I think I'll start a new life. I think I'll start it over where no one knows my name." It's better that...

    I feel as though I will never be seen

    for what I could be. I don't know how to prove I'm worth being appreciated. My friends are off having fun and they plan their fun day in front of me but without me. I need new friends.
