Lyrics

Dear Mom and Dad I wrote this letter to you

I'm sure you'll have questions when you read it through

I need you to know, it wasn't your fault

I know you did your best, you gave it your all

I think it's time we had a heart to heart

I wanna shed my skin, I want a fresh start

Don't blame yourself for all my ups and downs

This ain't a cry for help or a Columbine

The truth is I've been feeling so very low

Stopped taking my pills cause I needed to know

Who I really was and where It all went wrong

But all I heard were voices that just don't get along

A beautiful girl, lives inside of me

Afraid she be rejected by society

Takes a mountain of courage to begin within

Out of the shadows let the healing begin

To break free

So I could be what I wanna be

Or it'll break me

And in my heart I'll be lost in a sea

Or six feet under a tree

Break free

So I could be what I wanna be

Or it'll break me

And in my heart I'll be lost in a sea

Or six feet under a tree

When the lights go out and mom goes to sleep

I put on all her makeup wear her dresses and weep

Feel so awkward, never good in my skin

It's hard to make friends when you just never fit in

So I packed all my things and I'm going my way

Not sure where I'll go or what the neighbours will say

Can't go on pretending you know life's too short

I hope I can still count on all our love and support

We are betraying ourselves

If we don't follow our path

We're not boxed in or helpless

Sometimes it makes me laugh

But I read somewhere

You gotta seize the whole day

So I'll just rock up to the closet

Break down the doors and say

Help me

So I could be where I wanna be

So I could be what I wanna be

For every mood
