My life is protected
By people who care
Sometimes too much

They think they know
About what I put with
They couldn't be more ignorant

They see me laugh
Don't notice the tears
Flowing inside

If they could see
Into my soul
They'd be more protective

So it's better
That there's all ignorant
And don't realize

That I'm just a girl
With pain and remorse
Trying to get by.
