I look up the skies,
And I saw the clouds.
I look at your eyes,
It's not me you want around.

I felt the urge to apologize,
Cause its only now that I realized.
I'm sorry for the times you wasted on me,
Instead with the girl you like to be with.

As I walk away from you,
Please take it as goodbye...
I'm letting my love go,
to chase the girl he likes.

A girl caught my attention, she's slightly sun-kissed.
Marks and scratches can be seen in her wrist.
She smiles yet her eyes of hers are telling me something..
Then she hids her arms in the jacket shes wearing.

Suddenly, tears started to fall from her eyes,
It seems like she's done with all these stupid lies.
She smiles so bright as if it was her last...
Then the truth hits me like a blast.

Truly, mirror show our reflection.
But ONLY US, ourselves knows our inner intention.
I know that because I can see...
I know how it felt.... because she's me.

I smile because I'm happy,
I smile because it's funny.
I smile? That's a lie.
The truth is I'm dying inside.

I want you to believe I'm fine,
That yesterday I didn't cry.
That yesterday was okay too.
I smile to hide the pain from you.

I'm not a toy or a barbie,
nor a princess wannabe.
But i have something to say,
So please listen to what I'll say.

I'm a girl with flaws,
A girl who doesn't wear make up,
A girl who breaks some laws,
A girl who can't make it to the top.

In short, I'm not your ideal type of girl,
I'm not as bright like a pearl.
and other people may look down,
cause I don't have the thing you called "crown".

Though I really like meddling with others,
staying and being there for on another.
Still, I am not perfect,
For my parents, the standards 101 isn't all checked.
