    I feel like I'm in the way.

    Everything I comment on turns out to be a disaster. Maybe I should keep everything to myself. I'll just go talk to a wall.

    I feel so lonely in this town,

    I don't talk to anyone anymore. Everyone drifted away. When I walk around or go out, I feel like a tourist everyone stares cause I dress different and act different. I wish I could go back to Oregon, that's where I feel like I belong.
