i am the girl that sleeps all day
i'm that girl that never puts her laundry away

i am the girl that sings in the car
i'm that girl that looks from afar

i am the girl that makes all the jokes
i'm that girl that has high hopes

i am the girl that lives selflessly
i'm that girl caring, effortlessly

i am the girl that is broken from inside,
i'm that girl wounded from a guy

i am the girl your mother warned you about
i'm that girl.

because i can never live up to the pedestal expectations of society.
i can't be your cam girl.
i can't reply to your two am text.
i can't say yes when my body says no.
i can't pretend like it's okay when it isn't.

i just can't

i am not that girl
