The Good Girl

I'm a good girl

So I stay home…

I give them time to think…

But I'm the good girl

And I think too

I agree with what she says

She's gay for the reason

That I don't date

And where does that leave me?

I'm a good girl

So I don't question

I could "find out"

But I'm the good girl

And I dream too

I thought the same thoughts

She hurts herself for the reason

I once lost my faith

And what does that make me?

I'm a good girl

So I don't hurt myself

Maybe I was sad

But I'm the good girl

And I cry too

I feel lonely sometimes

She's lost her innocence for the reason

I write and pray

And how does that make me?

A good girl

Who doesn't surrender?

I have feelings too

But I'm still the good girl

And I wonder too

I wonder why I'm the "good" girl

For the same reason they're different

They're all good too

But I have to be the "good" girl

On the inside, I'm not

Not a good girl

Just a girl

Even if I hide things

We're all just girls

Shades of gray
