Stand Still, Look Pretty By the Wreckers

I want to paint face and pretend that I am someone else

Sometimes I get so fed up I don't even want to look at myself

But people have problems that are worse than mine

I don't want you to think I'm complaining all the time

And I hate the way you look at me I have to say

I wish I could start over

 

I am slowly falling apart

I wish you'd take a walk in my shoes for a start

And you may think it's easy being me

You just stand still, look pretty

 

Sometimes I find myself shaking in the middle of the night

And then it hits me and I can't even believe this is my life

But people have problems that are worse than mine

I don't want you to think I'm complaining all the time

And I wish that everyone would go and shut their mouths

I'm not strong enough to deal with this

 

I am slowly falling apart

I wish you'd take a walk in my shoes for a start

And you might think it's easy being me

You just stand still, look pretty

 

I've been listening to this song a lot lately
